It's been 18 years since a failed global-warming experiment killed off nearly all life on the planet. The few remaining humans live on the Snowpiercer, a train on an infinite loop around the globe. For those at the front, it’s a lavish paradise of drugs and sushi in the lap of luxury; for those trapped in the tail section, life is short and cruel.

But change is in the air. Curtis (Chris Evans, 'The Avengers', 'Captain America: The First Avenger'), desperate to escape the tail of the train, plans an uprising, aided by his mentor Gilliam (John Hurt, Academy Award Nominated for 'Midnight Express', 'The Elephant Man'). What begins as an isolated riot explodes into a mass revolution, an all-or-nothing push to the front of the train, and a war for humanity’s future.

Based on the French graphic novel, 'Snowpiercer' features a powerhouse international cast including Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris, Octavia Spencer, Allison Pill, Kang-Ho Song and Ah-sung Ko.
