Netflix releases trailer for new series "Snowpiercer," an adaptation of the 2013 same-name movie.
Snowpiercer, a new series adapted from the dystopian 2013 movie of the same name is coming to Netflix in Canada on May 17, hitting cable the same day. Netflix just released the trailer for Snowpiercer, the sci-fi series starring Jennifer Connelly, Mickey Sumner, and Lena Hall.
Snowpiercer is based on Jacques Lob and Jean Marc Rochette’s graphic novels. The post-apocalyptic show produced by Joon-Ho, director of Parasite is about passengers on a perpetually moving train, the only living survivors seven years after the world freezes over and becomes uninhabitable to humans. “First, the weather changed. In the final days of the freeze, the rich retreated to an ark. This is Snowpiercer. This is how we survive. There are those who have, and those who suffer,” says main character Andre Layton in the series’ trailer.
The show follows the passengers and their struggle with class-divide as the wealthy live comfortably while the poor suffer: “The Earth’s remaining inhabitants are confined to [the] single train as revolution brews among the class-divided cars.”
In the current climate, viewers want exciting content now more than ever. Brett Weitz, general manager of TNT as well as TBS and truTV says, “We are moving up ‘Snowpiercer’s’ premiere so that fans can enjoy this futuristic series even earlier.”
