First Teaser Footage for Bong Joon-Ho’s Snowpiercer

Naja, eigentlich eher ein Promovideo in dem sich Regisseur Bong Joon-ho zu seiner Verfilmung von Jacques Lob und Jean-Marc Rochettes Comic Snowpiercer (Le Transperceneige) äußert. Da der Großteil von uns aber kein koreanisch verstehen dürfte und einige dramatisch geschnittene Szenen aus dem Film präsentiert werden, verpasste ich das ganze aber mal den Stempel “Teaser”.

Synopsis:

The film is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snow Piercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.

US Trailer for Tomas Alfredson’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Finally a new old-school espionage thriller without all-powerful high-tech gadgets and emo Tom Cruise in a hoodie! Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy stars Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy and John Hurt, and is directed by Tomas Alfredson who also brought us the fantastic Swedish vampire drama Låt den rätte komma in (Let the Right One In).

Synopsis:

The time is 1973. The Cold War of the mid-20th Century continues to damage international relations. Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), a.k.a. MI6 and code-named the Circus, is striving to keep pace with other countries’ espionage efforts and to keep the U.K. secure. The head of the Circus, known as Control, personally sends dedicated operative Jim Prideaux into Hungary. But Jim’s mission goes bloodily awry, and Control is forced out of the Circus – as is his top lieutenant, George Smiley, a career spy with razor-sharp senses.

Estranged from his absent wife Ann, Smiley is soon called in to see undersecretary Oliver Lacon; he is to be rehired in secret at the government’s behest, as there is a gnawing fear that the Circus has long been compromised by a double agent, or mole, working for the Soviets and jeopardizing England. Supported by younger agent Peter Guillam, Smiley parses Circus activities past and present. In trying to track and identify the mole, Smiley is haunted by his decades-earlier interaction with the shadowy Russian spy master Karla.
