Snowpiercer, Kang-ho Song

With the film getting set to open in South Korea next week, the last marketing push—at least until it comes stateside—is underway for Bong Joon-ho’s post-apocalyptic "Snowpiercer." And now the "final" trailer, at least internationally for the moment, has arrived, giving us one more taste of the upcoming.

It's actually more of a teaser, putting Chris Evans' character into the central point of attention as a more personal quest seems to add to his role in the uprising on the train that carries the last survivors of humanity. And while a couple of early rave reviews may have piqued interest further in the film, THR had a bit more of a level-headed assessment today. While the picture is "still an intellectually and artistically superior vehicle to many of the end-of-days futuristic action thrillers out there...the overt ways in which Bong hammers his points home actually make the film less powerful than the more layered political allegories of his previous films." Food for thought, indeed.

Still no word on a release date from The Weinstein Company, so just sit tight with this trailer for now.
