OP: We're almost at the closing end of August, and we are still no closer to finding out when "Snowpiercer" will arrive in our theaters. Plus, there is still that looming threat of The Weinstein Company rearing their ugly head with the film editing controversy that surfaced roughly two weeks ago. Despite these setbacks, director Bong Joon-Ho's visionary work has seen several bright spots of positivity. The Korean auteur's first English-language international effort has broken box office records in his home country, both fans and film critics lucky enough to see the film being screened in Korea were all abuzz with the movie, and perhaps the best news of all--the sci-fi extravaganza has been given the full blessing and effusive praise from the original French authors of the source material when they visited Korea for an international comic convention and were given a special screening of their work come to life on the big screen.
With a stellar ensemble cast of actors from across three continents, "Snowpiercer" is certainly one of the most highly anticipated film releases ready to enthrall the rest of the world outside of Korea. So while we continue to patiently (or impatiently) wait for "Snowpiercer" to satisfy our moviegoing needs, here's a lovely megapost to tide you over until official word comes out from The Weinstein Company with regards to a confirmed release date in all major film territories, as well as whether director Bong will conform to the demands of Harvey Weinstein to trim down twenty minutes of footage in order for the film to be more "understandable" for audiences in Middle America.
But I digress... Enjoy these slew of photos featuring the cast and crew of "Snowpiercer", as well as brand new film stills from the movie plus exclusive concept art that gives insight to the creative process in making the world of "Snowpiercer" come to life. And a special bonus goes out to some select European contingents of ONTD with regards to "Snowpiercer" at the very end, so click the cut under the preview images to discover more details!
