An action-packed new trailer for Korean director Bong Joon-ho's science fiction film "Snowpiercer" has arrived. With an all-star cast including Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer and Jamie Bell, this is Bong's English language debut, adding to a new wave of Korean screen presence on US shores alongside Park Chan-wook's recent "Stoker" and Spike Lee's upcoming remake of Park's "Oldboy."

Weinstein Company scooped up rights to "Snowpiercer" last November and recently unleashed eight new character posters for the film, which still has no U.S. release date but is a 2013 hopeful. Boasting chilly, steampunk-inspired visuals, Joon-ho's film is set in a futurist Ice Age -- after a failed global warming experiment -- where Earth's sole survivors are condemned to a single train going nowhere. Passengers are segregated by class in different cars, and an uprising ensues.

This globalized film combines a local South Korean studio and producers with American stars and crew. Bong ("The Host," "Memories of Murder") based the script on the French graphic novel "Le Transperceneige." Watch the new trailer below and watch new featurettes over at The Playlist.
