Release Year: 2013

Directed By: Bong Joon-ho

Starring: Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Ko Asung, John Hurt, Ed Harris

Also directed by Academy Award-winning director Bong Joon-ho, Snowpiercer stars Chris Evans in the director’s English-language film debut, which was based on a French graphic novel. Evans plays Curtis Everett, the leader of the lower-class passengers on the train called the Snowpiercer as it travels around the world with the last remaining of humanity in the wake of a failed trial to end global warming created a Snowball Earth. Curtis leads the rebellion against the elite passengers taking up space in the front of the train, with the intent to change their fate.

Snowpiercer gained praise from critics and holds an impressive 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. However, the film wasn’t as successful at the box office, bringing in over $86 million worldwide against a budget of $40 million. Regardless, the film ranked on many Top 10 lists and spawned a successful television series of the same name on TNT. For fans of both Bong Joon-ho’s work and Chris Evans’s acting, Snowpiercer will definitely satisfy your craving for an enthralling post-apocalyptic thriller. Don’t miss the critically acclaimed film while it’s streaming on Netflix.
