'Snowpiercer' Speeds in Snowy Apocalypse on New International Poster
While cinephiles are still stewing about 20 minutes that are supposed to be cut from Joon-ho Bong's Snowpiercer at the behest of Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company, the director maintains that he's "actually being pretty soft toward editing." So hopefully the final cut of the film that makes it to theaters in the United States isn't drastically different from the cut hitting theaters internationally. While we wait for the film to get a release date, the film gets a cool new international poster that looks like it could be for The Day After Tomorrow, with the titular train speeding through the snowy apocalyptic setting. Look below!
The cast for Joon-ho Bong's Snowpiercer includes Chris Evans with Ed Harris, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Oscar winners Tilda Swinton & Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Kang-ho Song and Luke Pasqualino as passengers on the train. Joon-ho describes Snow Piercer as a post-apocalyptic movie about a few survivors who end up on a massive train that is divided by economic classes. "With a revolt brewing onboard, the Snow Piercer is a train of Earth's lone survivors that travels around the cold world." The Weinstein Company is planning a "wide summer 2013" release for the movie, but no date has been set yet. It was released in South Korea this past August. We expect it over here sometime this year.

quite like that, actually; no floating heads, and the picture tells a story. but that train image will have to be digitally shortened by at least two carriages so that people in the mid-West will get it.

I'm the first one to complain about meddlsom studio executives but the fact is there are almost no "Directors cuts" better than the originally released "Editors cut". They might be interesting for a fan to watch but the exception only proves the rule (Touch of Evil). Even the famous Bladerunner directors cut is not necessarily better. Yeah, the ending is an improvement but am I the only one who thinks the film works best with the voice over? Besides the noir essential ingredient, The film simply needs that dimension. Aliens? Danny Darko? I would not have believed that fine film could actually become so bad.
