With The Weinstein Company still going back-and-forth with director Bong Joon-ho when it comes to a (needlessly) cut-down version of his apocalyptic thriller Snowpiercer, audiences thankfully have other options to see the Chris Evans-led film. The drama has now been set for a Blu-ray release in France for March 26th, 2014, likely well before we even hear of a U.S. theatrical release.

One can already pre-order the regular version here (complete with a 52-minute behind-the-scenes documentary) and deluxe version here, which includes a 60-page sketchbook and a 80-page book on how they brought the graphic novel to life. In the meantime, check out a new-ish Japanese trailer below, thanks to Twitch, as well as cover art for the Blu-ray releases below.

What dictated these labels […]

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 […]
