For those who don't know, the film is set in a post-apocalyptic, snow covered Earth, in which all remaining humans live on a train (called Snowpiercer) that endlessly circles the globe. However, akin to recent releases such as The Hunger Games trilogy and Elysium, there is a large class divide, with privileged individuals residing in the front of the train, and all others residing in the back. The film focuses on the revolution that takes place - with intricate weaponry and intense action shots.
Snowpiercer has already been released in director Joon-ho's native Korea. It received mostly positive reviews, with an 86% rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. It hits American theaters June 27th.
