TNT have released the animated prologue for the upcoming television series adaptation of Snowpiercer, which was unveiled at New York Comic Con.
The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a 1001 car, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation based on the acclaimed movie and graphic novel series of the same name.
The animated prologue is narrated by Daveed Diggs, showcasing how the fallout from climate change to scientists making desperate attempts to reverse it leads to the last of the human race placed a train that never stops moving.
