I was thinking as I watched the first three episodes of Snowpiercer–based on the 2013 movie directed by Bong Joon Ho (The Host, Parasite), in turn based on the French graphic novel, Le Transperceneige–I wondered why would anyone make a continuing series based on it? That’s not to say that TNT’s interpretation is bad–in the […]
This 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.
