Today we have the first trailer for the upcoming "Snowpiercer" sci-fi film, which stars Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, Song Kang-ho and Ed Harris. Check it out below.
Plot: Set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.
The new movie is directed by Bong Joon-ho (The Host) and is based on a French graphic novel. A release date has yet to be set.

Maybe I'm the only one, but I find this interesting.

It's Chris Evans, so I know for a fact that you're not the only one, considering that at this very moment our fearless leader Alex is jerkin' it in his Captain America suit with the crotch cut out of it

Awesome, where can I get one of those?

If you open Alex's closet, Captain America suits with the crotch cut out are all he has hanging in there. Just rows of them, all identical except for the stains
What a stupid premise. Global warming causes a global ice age? Perpetual motion locomotives? This is the current state of cinematic science fiction? And here I was thinking Prometheus was an all time new low for that genre.
Okay, seriously, am I the only one getting an anti-Rand vibe here? We’ve got trains and a "perpetual motion engine" (read: static electricity motor), class warfare against the well-to-dos and even Tilda Swinton playing a villainess character that vaguely resembles Rand. Maybe I’m just seeing thins weirdly.
Graphic Novel, really! Watching the three Rebuild of Evangelion movies, Live-Action isn´t needed, just great the way it is, specially now that Pacific Rimake is onto it, Big-O, Evangelion and Lovecraftian themes into it.
I recently read one of the best Weird Detective fiction ever written, The Dogs of the End of the World, by mexican poet Homero Aridjis.
Great Detective story, but I wouldn´t put that stuff into that specific genre. Fast read and every chapter is so well written, the images that it evoques are particulary inspiring and not even the CGI on Man of sh*tsteel could be doing, they should be onto that book and imitate that sh*t, right now for part 2.
Oh I get it. I should learn to read these articles better...missed the part where it said a "failed experiment" causes an ice age. Uh huh. Even dumber. What did they do, dump so much sulfur into the atmosphere it not only negated GW but it also created an ice age? Kind of hard to do. It's not like putting too much bleach in with the wash...
