Fans of The host have been clamoring for more from Korean director Bong Joon-ho, and the anticipation comes to an end when the post-apocalyptic thriller Snowpiercer begins boarding.
While The Weinstein Company has yet to give us a release date here in the States, the Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell and John Hurt starrer opens in South Korean on August 1. It follows a group of people on a train without a final destination, struggling to survive after the end of the world brings on a cataclysmic ice age.
We’ve been dying to know how the chiller turned out, especially after seeing a tease of Swinton’s mind-blowing performance in the international trailers – thankfully, Variety has the first ever review, which is insanely positive. They call the film “An enormously ambitious, visually stunning and richly satisfying futuristic epic.” They rave about the film at thew aforementioned link, only fingering the “fully CGI exterior shots” as a distraction.
Watch for release news as it comes in.
