Weinstein Company Sets Awaited 'Snowpiercer' US Release in June

March 6, 2014


Briefly: After getting picked up about a year and a half ago by The Weinstein Company, and getting jockeyed around with 20 minutes being cut from the film and a new edit being tested and shot down in favor of director Bong Joon-ho's original cut, Snowpiercer is finally coming to the United States. Last month we learned the director's cut of the film will see release, and Radius-TWC has just given the film a limited theatrical release on June 27th, and if the distribution arm follows suit, the film will likely hit VOD the same day. With Captain America: The Winter Soldier coming in April, it's a good year for Chris Evans.

    I wish someone else would distribute this film other than Weinstein. They are the growing plague of cinema today and this goes to show why. If any other company was distributing this masterpiece there wouldn't be any bullshit limited release or cuts. It's just an insult, glad the original cut is finally coming soon but someone on the other end needs a swift kick in the nuts.
      I agree. The only thing Weinstein does right is that they are buds with Tarantino (for some reason).

    the directors cut is always more important than the producers version but that's the problem! Without them there would not be a snowpiercer movie. I hope they did a good job but still a shame for the Weinstein company...

    I wanted to comment before, but have luckily sustained from writing something I could have regret later on.
