Snowpiercer
In case you’re not a totally dialed-in geek for this one, a battle has been raging in the press for several months over a movie that few journalists have actually seen. That film is South Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho’s upcoming sci-fi graphic novel adaptation, “Snowpiercer,” featuring an international cast that includes Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Korean actors Song Kang-ho, Ko Ah-sung and many more. And the drama percolating over the last few months has been pitted as a classic David and Goliath story of art versus commerce.

Snowpiercer
While the Weinsteins may have angled to keep "Snowpiercer" from TIFF, they won't be preventing it from screening next week at the Berlin Film Festival. Of course, Bong Joon-Ho's apocalyptic, train-set thriller has already opened in a handful of international territories, but not yet in the ones controlled by Harv and co., so it will still be something fresh for many of the press and audience members in Berlin. And as we continue to patiently wait for some sign of a release date on U.S. soil, four new clips have landed for the flick.

Only Lovers Left Alive
Only Jim Jarmusch could dive into the vampire genre and instead of focusing on the fangs and blood, use it to explore existential ennui, culture, humanity and, of course, music. "Only Lovers Left Alive" finds the writer/director at his wittiest in years, delivering one of his best movies periods. And a big part of that success is down to his two leads.

As 2013 draws to a close, we're already taking a look at what's coming in 2014 and movie you'll probably hear us continuing to advocate for is Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive." From Cannes to Toronto to New York to London, it has dipped its fangs into the neck of The Playlist team and rendered us helpless to its charms. And now a plethora of new images have arrived as an excuse for us to talk about this one again.

Only Lovers Left Alive
From Cannes to Toronto to New York to London, as Jim Jarmusch's elegant and beautiful "Only Lovers Left Alive" has cruised the festival circuit, it has won over the hearts of various Playlist members at each stop along the way. It's easily his best film since "Dead Man" (though I'm one of the few who adores "The Limits Of Control") and will undoubtedly rank among his finest accomplishments. And while it's a hard movie to cut down to trailer form, this new international spot does a pretty nice job.

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. But after opening in South Korea in August, it's barely been seen in the rest of the world, with Harvey Weinstein holding the release in the territories he controls until he can cut a reported 20 minutes out to make it more palatable to western crowds. But one location in which Harvey Scissorhands doesn't hold the rights is France, and the director's cut opened there this week—appropriate, given that it's based on a French graphic novel called "Le Transperceneige." Eager to see what the fuss is about, we hopped on the Eurostar to Paris to check it out yesterday. And Harvey? We wouldn't touch a frame, because this might be the best pure science-fiction film since "Children of Men."
