We’re only a few weeks away from the premiere of Marvel’s largest mashup yet, Avengers: Infinity War. After ten years and eighteen films, we’ve finally come to the point where this has all been heading towards. It’s sometimes funny to think back to the first Avengers movie. We had a glimpse of Thanos and knew he would be a formidable force to reckon with. Did we ever think it would take this long? Did we ever think there would be so many characters that we would come to love in the years in between? Every film, from Antman, to Age of Ultron, to Black Panther, everything we’ve seen has been leading up to one epic movie. I know, I’m rambling. But, don’t we all feel like this is more than just a movie and these characters are more than just fictional?
In light of the news that 2013’s post-apocalyptic ice age train-ride Snowpiercer is getting its own spinoff television series, I’ve decided to dedicate this week’s Throwback Thursday to the movie. Starring Chris Evans, this film is Bong Joon-Ho’s first English speaking project. It’s set seventeen years after the earth has been engulfed by another Ice Age, due to humankind’s response to Global Warming.
