The premiere of the post-apocalyptical sci-fi SNOWPIERCER, which has been shot last year in our studios, is expected this autumn. Producers have just revealed some official “concept art” visualization as well as the official poster.

Detail

The film is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews…

Snowpiercer is so far the biggest international production of director Bong Joon-ho, his first film shot in English language too.

The set was constructed by Barrandov Studios set construction department. “We built 26 train carriage sets in total. One was 25 meters long so if you put them all together, the total length would be over 500 meters. I felt totally overwhelmed when I first saw the massive set,” Bong puts it in the interview for Korean Cinema Today magazine in the Berlinale special issue.

Although the project is still in post-production (our Film labs also partly involved), first “concept art” visualization spread out in the internet recently. The creators also released the first official poster, which we bring you here as the illustration. Release date has not been set yet. However, you can feel the atmosphere of the movie through these first viral indications too. We are proud of our contribution to the project.
