Snowpiercer
Few films without a firm release date (in most of the world, at least) have inspired as much chatter of late than Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer." The English-language debut of the South Korean mastermind behind "Memories of Murder," "The Host" and "Mother," it features an all-star cast and a hefty budget, and was snapped up early on by The Weinstein Company.

Hail Caesar Cast, Coen Brothers
So maybe let's start this with a hat tip to Channing Tatum and how far he's come. From that guy in the "Step Up" movie, the actor made steady moves to work with directors of note, taking roles in films by Kimberly Peirce ("Stop-Loss"), Michael Mann ("Public Enemies"), Ron Howard ("The Dilemma"), Kevin Macdonald ("The Eagle"), Steven Soderbergh ("Haywire," "Side Effects," "Magic Mike") and Bennett Miller ("Foxcatcher") and that's not to mention becoming the star of franchises like "G.I. Joe" and "21 Jump Street." And so, don't be surprised that the Coens have tapped the actor for their next film.

Snowpiercer
Even though it was a battle, Bong Joon-Ho was pretty much always going to win against The Weinstein Company (and he explains why here), some around The Playlist would argue that "Snowpiercer" could use a trim to the director's cut. But not everyone. Either way, it's one of the most anticipated movies of the summer for those who have waited far too long for the latest from the filmmaker behind "Mother" and "The Host." And this clip should heat up those feelings.

Snowpiercer
By time point, you might be tired of hearing about Bong Joon-ho's snow laden, apocalyptic epic "Snowpiercer." And we'd understand. First there was the months of wrangling about when this movie would be seen stateside, and in which version (don't worry, we're getting the director's cut), and then there's been the plethora of promo material as film has opened overseas. Well, if you're not exhausted yet, here's one more trailer.

Snowpiercer
After much drama about which cut of "Snowpiercer" was going to get released, the beef between Harvey Weinstein and Bong Joon-Ho was eventually smoothed over. Joon-Ho's cut will get released, albeit in a limited bow, and the movie opens the L.A. Film Festival next month. So how about some new pics until you can see this thing this summer?

Review: Jim Jarmusch's Cultured & Cool 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Starring Tom Hiddleston & Tilda Swinton

Only Lovers Left Alive
From the very first opening titles, written in a Germanic font that immediately conjures everything from “Triumph of the Will” to images of big-busted ladies screaming in campy close-up in 1970s cheapie horrors (it may be the only time in Cannes that a film got a big laugh for a typeface) it’s perfectly clear that the Jim Jarmusch in whose company we’re about to spend a couple of hours is not the wilfully obscure surrealist of “The Limits of Control,” nor the considered, melancholic philosopher behind “Dead Man,” nor even the oddball ragtag troubadour of “Down By Law." In fact, “Only Lovers Left Alive,” Jarmusch’s take on the vampire myth starring recent muse Tilda Swinton and Tom “fast becoming everyone’s favorite actor” Hiddleston, finds the maverick filmmaker on playful, referential and mischievous form with hugely enjoyable, if not exactly weighty or important, results.

Only Lovers Left Alive
Iconoclastic filmmaker Jim Jarmusch has been living outside of the mainstream for his entire career, so it’s perhaps only fitting that for his 11th feature-length film, “Only Lovers Left Alive,” the writer/director turns his attentions to the outsiders that live in shadows.
