Snowpiercer

The low key release of Snowpiercer is finding a pretty decent size audience after getting a release in limited theaters two weeks later, followed by a wide release and availability on nearly all VOD platforms last weekend. It's turned out to be a pretty big hit with Thompson on Hollywood learning from Harvey Weinstein, who battled with Bong Joon-ho over the final cut, that the film has pulled in $2 million in just one week from VOD releases. That's the kind of stuff that keeps changing the face of distribution. Now to explore the film and see what everyone is talking about, here's a video essay analyzing the film very well.

Here's the 10-minute video essay on Snowpiercer fromĀ Press Play (via The Film Stage):

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 film premiered last year and also showed at the Berlin Film Festival. The Weinstein Company has released the director's cut of the film on VOD and in theaters everywhere now. See it immediately!

I wish this movie had more Tilda Swinton in it.
