Snowpiercer is plaiyng on October 4 at the Beyond Fest at Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre.  A presentation, in part, of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, the author of the graphic novel, Jean-Marc Rochette, will be in person at the screening.

It’s been 18 years since we froze the earth. 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), desperate to escape the tail of the train, plans an uprising, aided by his mentor Gilliam (John Hurt). 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. Who will live and who will die? How far can they go? Is there hope beyond the frozen wastes?
 
A box-office smash in Korea and France, Snowpiercer arrives in the United States at the same time as its source, graphic novel Le Transperceneige, is translated into English, 30 years after it was published in France.

Opens in the US:

- Opens in New York on June 27, 2014 at the Lincoln Center and Angelika Film Center 
- Opens in Los Angeles on June 27, 2014 at Sundance Sunset Cinemas and CGV Cinemas
