The other day, we half-joked about "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" being our most anticipated for the rest of the year. Of course, we are desperately counting the days until the comedy sequel arrives, but there are films that are probably a little higher on our watch-list. And perhaps at the very top is Bong Joon-Ho's "Snowpiercer."

The other day, we half-joked about "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" being our most anticipated for the rest of the year. Of course, we are desperately counting the days until the comedy sequel arrives, but there are films that are probably a little higher on our watch-list. And perhaps at the very top is Bong Joon-Ho's "Snowpiercer."

The Korean filmmaker, who was behind "Memories of Murder," "The Host" (the good one, not the Stephenie Meyer one) and "Mother" is one of the most exciting filmmakers in the world right now, so we've been following his English-language debut with eagle-eyes ever since it was announced, and even more so since he started to assemble a killer international cast. But the closer the film gets, and the more we see of it, the more desperate the wait for it becomes, and that's true of the latest batch of photos and posters for the movie that just arrived.

Some of the images -- of Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Tilda Swinton, Ewan Bremner, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Song Kang-ho, Go Ah-sung et al. on board their futuristic, bitterly class-divided train -- are more familiar than others, having previously run as a series of 'passports' as promotional material. But they're now hi-res and clean, and on top of that, there are a few that are new, including the shot below that sees much of the cast gathered together for a group shop. Anyway, it continues to look bonkers and brilliant, and we're dying to know when we can see the whole thing. Venice, perhaps?
