The show centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a perpetually moving train, with 1001 cars, that circles the globe.

Based on the graphic novel series and film from Oscar-winning director Bong Joon Ho, class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out across the 10 episodes.

As one end of the train live in luxury, the other end is dystopian squalor as thousands live in cramped, dirty conditions and are beaten if they disobey orders.

However, an uprising in on its way, leading to plenty of drama in the trailer as well as the threat of a devastating avalanche.




Speaking about the series, Jennifer, 49, recently told Empire Magazine about her character Melanie Cavill, who holds the all-important train keys.

She said: "[The show] is talking about limited resources and social injustices and hierarchies and power and wealth.

“I thought that it was a really great platform to talk about some relevant issues in a way that is, I think, still entertaining and fun. It’s really exciting.”

The series also stars Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, Iddo Goldberg and Katie McGuinness.

Award-winning writer and producer Graeme Manson is the showrunner and also serves as executive producer along with Scott Derrickson, Matthew O’Connor ​and the original film's producers including Parasite's Bong Joon Ho.

The 2013 film starred Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Song Kang-Ho and Jamie Bell.

Snowpiercer premieres on Netflix on May 25.
