Snowpiercer (2013)

In a dystopian future, Earth lies frozen – a desolate wasteland ravaged by a catastrophic ice age triggered by a failed attempt to reverse climate change. However, amidst the ruins of civilization, the last survivors of humanity cling to life aboard the Snowpiercer, a colossal, perpetually moving luxury train. Powered by a mysterious perpetual motion engine, the train endlessly circles the globe, its inhabitants divided by a rigid social hierarchy. The opulent front cars house the elite, who revel in lavish comforts. While the impoverished underclass languishes in squalor at the tail end.

Curtis, a young man hardened by life in the tail section, emerges as the unlikely leader of a rebellion. Driven by years of oppression and fueled by the plight of his people, he embarks on a perilous journey through the train. His goal: to fight their way to the engine, overthrow the ruling class, and seize control of the Snowpiercer. The rebellion is a desperate gamble, a violent uprising that will shape the future of humanity and test the very limits of survival amidst the relentless grip of a frozen world.
