Snowpiercer is having a few problems. Despite great reviews from film festivals, it’s currently stuck in a battle between Bong Joon-ho and The Weinstein Company, over whether a recut version should be released in the US and potentially other countries as well. The Weinsteins want to recut it, but Bong wants his version released.
As a result it’s slightly stuck in limbo, so while it originally looked like it would be out next summer, there’s still no official US or UK release date set.
However now a new Japanese trailer has arrived to give us a fresh feel for the movie.
Snowpiercer is set on a ravaged Earth where the few human survivors are a train (which gives the film its name) that travels around the globe. However a revolution is brewing amongst the passengers inside. The film has a great cast, following Curtis (Chris Evans), Mason (Tilda Swinton), Gilliam (John Hurt), Wilford (Ed Harris), Namgoong Minsu (Kang-ho Song), Edgar (Jamie Bell), Tanya (Octavia Spencer), Andrew (Ewen Bremner) and Yona (Ah-sung Ko) as they ride the train.
