It’s a strange time we live in where two of the non-‘Transformers’ movies released this weekend are considered small indie films, yet one is a romantic comedy (sort of) staring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler and the other - 'Snowpiercer' - is an action movie starring the guy who plays Captain America.
Bong Joon-ho's 'Snowpiercer' is opening (at least internationally) right before Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium,' and it's interesting that two world-class filmmakers are using science-fiction to address the inequalities in the world. The "Occupy Wall Street" movement obviously sparked a lot of imaginations.
For a second, some people thought this is what Tilda Swinton's character in the sci-fi flick 'Snowpiercer' looked like, but as official images started making the rounds, we all realized that her look is much more drastic. Now that new character posters have been revealed, we get an up-close look at another one of her more interesting movie transformations.
For a film we know next to nothing about, 'Snowpiercer' certainly sounds cool. In fact, it sounds like on the most promising films of 2013 and it's legitimately frustrating how little we know about the movie itself and the plans for its release. Some new promotional images (cleverly displayed as passports) have arrived and while they don't fill in too many blanks, they give us a picture of what may be the best ensemble of the year.
