UPDATE (July 22, 2019): After sharing a teaser late last week, TBS has now dropped the first full-length trailer for the highly-anticipated TV adaptation of Snowpiercer.
Shared during San Diego Comic-Con, the trailer opens up with Jennifer Connelly making an announcement to all the passengers stating “we are six years, nine months and twenty-six days from departure.” As Connelly’s character tries to keep everything in tip-top shape for the first class passengers — who live near the front of the train — Daveed Diggs’ counterpart is stirring up a rebellion in the rear of the train, where the lower class lives.
Based off Bong Joon Ho‘s 2013 critically-acclaimed sci-fi movie of the same name and French graphic novel, Le Transperceneige, Snowpiercer will expand on the story of the last remaining humans stationed on a moving train that circles the globe. Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, Iddo Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, Lena Hall, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand, and Jaylin Fletcher also star alongside Connelly and Diggs. Snowpiercer arrives in Spring of 2020 on TBS. Check out the trailer above.
In more entertainment news, Marvel officially announced a Blade reboot starring Mahershala Ali.
Original Story (July 18, 2019): On the eve of San Diego Comic-Con, TBS shared a teaser for its upcoming TV adaptation of Snowpiercer.
Originally developed for TBS’ sister station TNT, the series based off Bong Joon Ho‘s 2013 critically-acclaimed sci-fi movie of the same name and French graphic novel, Le Transperceneige, will be arriving in spring of 2020. Although the short teaser showcases the same snowy tracks and titular locomotive, recurring cast member Aleks Paunovic, who plays Breachman Bojan Boscovic, has stated in pervious interviews that the TV adaptation will be different from both the film and graphic novel, but will of course remain exciting.
“It’s different from the movie and the [graphic novel], but all I can say is, reading the scripts, they’re fantastic. It’s captivating, and a lot of things happen that you go, ‘Oh, man, I never even thought of that,’” Paunovic shared. “It’s definitely very exciting. I can’t really get too much into it, but I can definitely say that it’s something that keeps you going, for sure. Absolutely.”
Check out an official synopsis below:
“Set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, the series centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. As it does, issues of class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are raised.”
Snowpiercer will also star Daveed Diggs, Jennifer Connelly, Mickey Sumner, Annalise Basso, Sasha Frolova, Alison Wright, Benjamin Haigh, Roberto Urbina, Katie McGuinness, Susan Park, Lena Hall, Sheila Vand, Sam Otto, Iddo Goldberg, and Jaylin Fletcher. Snowpiercer is expected to arrive in Spring 2020.
