Snowpiercer borrows a lot from/is very similar to The Hunger Games. Everyone is put in their respective places on the train and are forced to stay there. The poor huddled masses lie in the least-desired plot, and the weirdly-dressed rich assemble them together to cull children for their own nefarious purposes. This order is enforced by an army of jack-booted thugs, while the representative from the front of the train lectures the masses of their proper place. Like the books, food is an important issue, the tail end inhabitants eat only protein bars – gelatinous slabs – provided by the front, while the upper class passengers enjoy real food and even occasional sushi.
