The French have us beat bigtime with the best champagne, buttered snails and now this high-octane final trailer for Snowpiercer, with beaucoup battery on the rails, thanks to Chris Evans kicking some upper-class ass.  The movie is adapted from the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette. 

Its intriguing apocalyptic eco-story "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 Snowpiercer, 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."

Directed by The Host's Bong Joon-ho, this chilly choo-choo movie stars stars Chris Evans, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song and Ko Asung.  Snowpiercer pulls into U.S. theaters sometime in early 2014.
