What's it about?

In a future where a failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet, a class system evolves aboard the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine.

Why do we love it?

Snowpiercer is a brutal and gritty take on the dystopian epic with a mysterious and claustrophobic setting. It has a running sense of insanity throughout and has an approach that American productions just can’t replicate which is what makes it so unique.

Who's in it?

Chris Evans - Curtis Everett

Tilda Swinton- Minister Mason

Song Kang-ho- Namgoong Minsu

Who made it?

Bong Joon-ho - Director & Writer
