Snowpiercer gets Uncut United States Release. The Weinstein Company has coincided to director Bong Joon-ho‘s wishes regarding Snowpiercer and will release the film unaltered. The just over two and half hours runtime will remain intact. There is a catch to this concision: Instead of a wide release, the film will now get a platform release, a form of limited release, into US theaters. This was the type of release employed for Silver Linings Playbook. We all know how well that strategy paid off for the film.
There is still no word yet on when the platform release for Snowpiercer will transpire. Snowpiercer has already been released in Korea and France. It is being released today in Japan.
I can’t wait to see Snowpiercer. I love Bong Joon-ho’s work. When The Host came out on DVD, I watched the film twice, back to back.
We previously published these Snowpiercer articles:
Snowpiercer‘s plot synopsis: based on the novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette, “The film is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snow Piercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.”
