Trailer: Snowpiercer

Elysium may be the most buzzed-about sci-fi blockbuster in the next quarter, but I'm equally excited for Snowpiercer, a post-apocalyptic train-set thriller starring Captain America's Chris Evans, John Hurt and Tilda Swinton. I'm especially hyped because it's directed by the talented Bong Joon-ho, who joins his fellow South Korean mavericks Kim Ji-woon (The Last Stand) and Park Chan-wook (Stoker) in making their English language debuts in the past year. Bong boasts an impressively consistent and versatile filmography, having done a crime drama (Memories of Murder), a black comedy (Barking Dogs Never Bite), a monster movie (The Host) and a character study (Mother), so there's a good chance Snowpiercer will maintain that level of quality. Here's the international trailer... quality's not so great, but it still looks damn cool:
