We hope you've had a chance by now to look at Part 1 of our 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2013, but even if you haven't, you'd be right in guessing that Bong Joon-ho's English language debut "Snowpiercer" would be on the list. The latest from the director of "The Host" and "Mother" brings together an all-star cast for a snowbound thriller, and with The Weinstein Company putting it in their pocket in November and aiming for a summer release, we're likely to see much more from the movie soon.

We hope you've had a chance by now to look at Part 1 of our 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2013, but even if you haven't, you'd be right in guessing that Bong Joon-ho's English language debut "Snowpiercer" would be on the list. The latest from the director of "The Host" and "Mother" brings together an all-star cast for a snowbound thriller, and with The Weinstein Company putting it in their pocket in November and aiming for a summer release, we're likely to see much more from the movie soon.

But until then, a helpful reader has send us some scans from the latest issue of Cahiers Du Cinema that features concept art from the futuristic film. An adaptation of the French graphic novel "Le Transperceneige," that story takes place on a train carrying the only survivors of a post-apocalyptic future, as revolt brews. Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, Song Kang-ho, John Hurt, Alison Pill, Octavia Spencer and Ewen Bremner feature in the pretty amazing cast.

The artwork certainly points to both a desolate and forward-looking picture, and the teaser poster below (via Comic Book Movie) gives ample evidence why Harvey wants this one. No release date yet, but we'd wager a Cannes Film Festival bow is probably a safe bet. Take a look below.
