    Admittedly, I'd watch Ethan Hawke clip his toenails... but this looks pretty good. I wasn't into Snowpiercer, but I really like Daveed Diggs. It'll be nice to see Hawke go off the rails, too.

    Willem Dafoe feels like he would have been a much better casting choice in my opinion, but seems like this was a passion project for Hawke and I think he looks good in the trailer.
