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.

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.

His latest work is a pair of scores for films that were both released this month, Jake Paltrow‘s neo-western Young Ones and the journalistic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Johnson has also been producing a couple albums and […]
