I suppose it’s fitting that France is receiving a final trailer for Bong Joon-ho‘s post-apocalyptic thriller Snowpiercer before those in the U.S. even hear a peep about a release date. But as The Weinstein Company and the director hash out the potential edits for its release in the states, thankfully this preview reveals there is a lot to look forward to.

With a cast also including John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song and Ko Asung, we could see Harvey Weinstein setting this up as a spring 2014 release, after his Oscar campaigns are concluded, so hopefully word comes in soon. In the meantime, check out the trailer (as well as a condensed version) and poster below from France, where the film will land in the end of October.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
