‘Snowpiercer’ Official US Release Trailer 1

Snowpiercer logoThis trailer for Bong Joon Ho‘s Snowpiercer turned up on the Interwebs a few hours ago, and it’s interesting for what it doesn’t show more than watch it does.

By which I mean, action is emphasized heavily in virtually every scene and very little else (though the actress whom I assume is Tilda Swinton with false teeth is interesting in and of itself).

I hope that the storyline involving halves and have-nots hasn’t gone under the Weinstein’s knife because without the philosophical underpinnings it’s nothing more than The Purge aboard a train.

And that would be a shame because I think movies like Snowpiercer have a lot to tell us about ourselves, which is never an easy thing.
