'Snowpiercer' is an adaptation of the French graphic novel 'Le Transperceneige' by Jacques Lob.

Directed by Bong Joon-Ho, the movie will be released sometime in 2014.

'Set in a future where a runaway experiment to stop global warming has caused an ice age that killed nearly all life on Earth. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the 'Snowpiercer', a massive train that travels around the planet and is powered by a perpetual-motion engine. Over time a class system evolves on the train, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the back of the train. Tired of their poor living conditions, the riders in the back revolt, attempting to seize control of the engine, which the elites in the front consider sacred.'

I've been eagerly awaiting news of the film's release. According to the rumour mill it may be some time before we see it here in the UK, as Boon Jong-Ho is embroiled in a dispute over the cut of the film, with the Weinstein Company, who have distribution rights for several european countries!

The full story of the delay can be read in the January 2013 issue of SIGHT & SOUND

The January 2014 issue of SIGHT & SOUND has this update:

"Bong Joon-ho’s fifth feature Snowpiercer is one sci-fi dystopia that we hope we’ll see soon on UK screens. But will it be in the cut that the director intended? The film, about a train carrying the only human and animal survivors left after a new ice-age, has proven a hit in both France and Korea, but the director is currently embroiled in a dispute with the Weinstein Company over a cut version they want to release in English-speaking territories. Here, Tony Rayns details the full history of the Harvey Weinstein / Snowpiercer saga, and reminds us how past Asian releases have fared with the man they call ‘Scissorhands’."
