Snowpiercer  is a 2013 science fiction thriller film based on the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige” by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette. The film is directed by Bong Joon-ho, and written by Bong and Kelly Masterson.

The BOOM Library was commissioned to produce a library of train recordings for the film Snowpiercer, starring Tilda Swinton, Chris Evans, Jamie Bell and John Hurt.

The film takes place in a perpetually moving train, which is why an extensive amount of train sounds were needed. Check out some of them in the trailer above.

The recordings for Snowpiercer were also released as the BOOM Library’s Trains collection.
