Snowpiercer || After an attempt to stop global warming via climate engineering catastrophically backfires, creating a new ice age in 2014, the remnants of humanity have taken to a circumnavigational train, the Snowpiercer, run by recluse transportation magnate Wilford. By 2031, the passengers on the train have become segregated by class, with the elite in the extravagant front cars while the poor are forced into squalid tail compartments by armed guards.
Urged by his father-figure Gilliam, Curtis and his second-in-command Edgar lead the tail passengers on a revolt after they realize the guards’ weapons have no ammunition. They free Namgoong, a captive security specialist, and his clairvoyant daughter Yona. Namgoong helps the tail army progress forward, but soon end up in a deadlock with more guards equipped with axes, overseen by Minister Mason. In the ensuing fight, Curtis allows Edgar to be killed so he can capture Mason and use her as a bargaining chip to end the battle. The tail army stays back to hold the guards captive, while Curtis takes Mason along with Namgoong, Yona, skilled fighter Grey, and Tanya and Andrew, two parents who have had their children taken from them to the front section of the train. They are unaware that Franco, loyal to Mason, escapes the tail army to rally more guards.
Curtis’ group travels through the first of several opulent cars. Namgoong and Yona recognize a landmark outside and consider that the ice may be thawing. The group eventually reaches a schoolroom, where the teacher is indoctrinating the children on. Wilford’s greatness, just before they open eggs to celebrate the “New Year”, marking one circumnavigation of the Earth.
