Octavia Spencer in New ‘Snowpiercer’ Character Poster

Octavia Spencer in 'Snowpiercer' Theatrical PosterReleased Monday, a new international poster for Snowpiercer, the upcoming sci-fi thriller, gives us a glimpse into the futuristic world of director Bong Joon-ho.

The poster features one of the story’s main characters, Tanya (Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer), in what could be described as a desolate, post-apocalyptic world theme. The actress is dressed in tattered clothing with a headband holding back wild mane.

Snowpiercer is set in the 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 Snowpiercer — a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine.

The sci-fi film, which also stars Marcanthonee Reis, is slated for a summer 2013 release.
