Bong Joon-Ho’s (Mother, The Host) latest film is a Korean and American sci-fi thriller based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette entitled Snowpiercer. The Snowpiercer is a futuristic train that runs on perpetual motion traveling around the globe carrying the only living inhabitants of our Earth now wrecked by an ice age. The movie follows a revolution from a class system that has formed on the train.
The movie is set to be released in South Korea August 1st but there still isn’t a release date set for the US. After you see all the media below maybe you can join me in a revolution of sorts to get the Weinstein Company (Twitter) to go ahead and get that nailed down.

And here we have several featurettes for you which are mostly in English, but have some chunks of Korean. You’ll get the gist of them without needing a translator, I’m sure. Looking at set design, costumes, make-up and anything behind the scenes is really a universal language and doesn’t necessarily need translation to still be awesome.
