Our beloved Chris Evans took a break from the superhero world to do a South Korean-American science fiction action film. That’s right.
Snowpiercer is based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, by Jacques Lob and it’s the first English-spoken film of director Bong Joon-ho.
The film takes place on a moving train, which contains the survivors of global warming. They later organize a revolt after being kept captive in the train for years.
Evans plays Curtis Everett, a rebel that we can see hurling a weapon at a government official (Tilda Swinton) in the clip below.
Also starring are Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer and Ed Harris.
Snowpiercer was released last August in South Korea, receiving mainly positive reviews. It opened this week in the US in limited release, so I strongly recommend you go watch it if you have the chance.
This is a different look at Chris Evans and his acting skills, very far from the Captain America image we are now so used to see in him. I’ll admit: nothing makes me happier than seeing my favourite actors playing different types of roles. I’ll stop before I get emotional.
Check out the Snowpiercer clip below:
And run to your nearest theatre to watch it!
