Snowpiercer is first English-language film from Bong Joon-ho, the South Korean responsible for the exquisite monster flick, 2009’s The Host. Check out the creepy concept art above.

Chris Evans stars as the man who bucks the class system on a post-apocalypse train that carries the surviving humans in a world returned to the Ice Age. On that train, the poor live in the train’s tail while the rich live (in decadence, naturally) at the front. Snowpiercer’s cast also includes Tilda Swinton (who’s trying to stop Evans’ character), Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Octavia Spencer and Ed Harris.

The international trailer follows the jump.

Django Unchained: Quentin Tarantino’s Take on Spaghetti Westerns Shoots Down Slavery!

The result is seriously bloody fun.

Piranha 3D Best Picture of the Year Contender???

Hey, stranger things have happened and in a year where there are so many mediocre films (so far), Piranha 3D could be a contender.  At least that’s what The Weinstein Company is hoping for. I’m assuming they are being tongue in cheek with their latest press release. Check out this hysterical take on the “For Your Consideration” campaign video on Funny or Die. I love it when a movie knows what it is and isn’t ashamed of it. Loved the line about “you have to have 10 nominations, what are you going to do nominate Inception 10 times?”  Nice job Weinstein Company, I now want to see this movie.
