Futuristic Ice Age thriller Snowpiercer could turn out to be the District 9 of 2013. Korean director Bong Joon-ho's first English-language flick, like Neil Blombkamp's thoughtful alien invasion from 2009, operates far outside the Marvel/DC/vampire/zombie nexus that inspires most big Hollywood spectacles.

Judging from a spare concept art teaser offered on the film's Korean website uncovered by TFS, Joon-ho can be expected to extend his reach as the rare filmmaker who combines art house subtlety with killer suspense instincts.

With Snowpiercer, based on Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochetteg from French graphic novel Transperceneige, he's got a rich premise to work with. Set in 2031, the last survivors on earth hurtle through a landscape covered in ice and snow in a train whose compartments are divided by social class. Revolution brews as desperate passengers fight for survival. Drawing from this source material, Joon-ho has a chance to create a genuine breakout that blends socio-political metaphor, sci-fi spectacle and genuinely scary moments.

I think that the idea of the population in a train is good.
Let's see how they made it.
