Based on the French comic Le Transperceneige
, acclaimed Korean director Bong Joon Ho's first English-language film Snowpiercer
is set in the year 2031 on an Earth engulfed in a second ice age. The only remaining survivors live on the perpetually moving train Snowpiercer
, which has developed a cruel, class-stratified system of its own, leading to the poor passengers in the back of the train to plan a revolt. Chris Evans, Ed Harris, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt and The Host
's Song Kang Ho and Ko Ah Sung star in this spectacular sci-fi blockbuster that thrills with stunning visuals, brutal action and a dystopian vision of the future.
On Snowpiercer, passengers in first class live in comfort and luxury, while those in the back wallow in hunger, poverty and fear under the iron thumb of Mason (Tilda Swinton), the train's steely second-in-command. Led by Curtis (Chris Evans), a group of insurgents from the back risk it all to push to the front and seize control of the Engine. A different world with different dangers awaits them in every compartment, and at the end is the train's mysterious creator Wilford and the many secrets he holds.
This edition comes in a deluxe digipak boxset with a 188-page art book and a Snowpiercer floor plan.
