Already a huge success in his native country, Bong Joon-ho’s post-apocalyptic “Snowpiercer” is still without a stateside released date as its western distributor The Weinstein Company is reportedly looking to — controversially — trim twenty minutes from the film presumably to make it more more palatable to American audiences. Though there hasn’t been any word from Harvey Weinstein himself, the film’s lead actor Chris Evans has weighed in with his thoughts on the proposed changes.

With summer winding down (the last major blockbuster, "Elysium," opened today, with the rest of August rolling out weaker and weaker commercial fare), eyes are now turning to the fall offerings. And while there's plenty of prestige-y fare on the way, there's more than a few films that, while they might have an eye on the trophy cabinet, are paying just as much attention to your wallet.

While we continue to wait for a U.S. release date for Bong Joon-ho's post-apocalyptic "Snowpiercer," it's smashing records at home. It reached 1 million viewers in less than two days in release, breaking a previous record set by the director's "The Host," and becoming the first film to do so in South Korean history. And yet, while the picture seems to doing just fine overseas, Harvey Weinstein reportedly wants to make some changes before he drops it in English speaking territories.

With the film getting set to open in South Korea next week, the last marketing push — at least until it comes stateside — is underway for Bong Joon-ho’s post-apocalyptic "Snowpiercer." And now the "final" trailer, at least internationally for the moment, has arrived, giving us one more taste of the upcoming.

While The Weinstein Company continues to keep Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer" on a still undetermined place on their future slate, the movie is gearing up to open in South Korea. We've already seen a good handful of teasers, pics and previews of the movie, but finally some folks seen the film in its entirety. Yes, the first couple of reviews are in and it looks like the director of "The Host" and "Mother" has hit a homerun.

Are you excited for Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer"? Well, of course you are, but it's a bit of bummer for those of us stateside anticipating his star-studded, post-apocalyptic movie. While it gears up to open on August 1st in South Korea, U.S. distributors The Weinstein Company haven't even given the movie a date yet, and we'd wager at this point, it probably won't arrive in theaters until 2014. Fall festival apperances? Perhaps that will be in the cards, though the Weinsteins may also be too busy pushing their awards season slate, so you never know. Sigh. But at least there is still a lot we can look at until then...

While it’s nearly a month away from release in South Korea, the Bong Joon-Ho-helmed adaptation of “Snowpiercer” is still without a release date in North America despite being picked up by The Weinstein Company last fall. We’ve already seen the first trailer for the film and now we have a bunch of new images that give us a better look at the ambitious post-apocalyptic film.

Picked up by The Weinstein Company last fall, rumored for Cannes and generally spending the last few months teasing us with a handful of stills repurposed into posters as well, now comes the first real look at Bong Joon-ho's upcoming, star-studded "Snowpiercer." Was it worth the wait?

The World's End
It seems that if you want some vision of the world coming an end, you have more than a few options at the movies this year; on Wednesday "This Is The End" comes to theaters, and numerous sci-fi blockbusters this summer ("Oblivion," "After Earth") have already tackled apocalyptic visions of Earth forever changed and humanity forced to leave. Some extra posters for a couple of the other flavors of big and scary end-times are here, continuing cinema's determination to make 2013 the year it all ended.

The other day, we half-joked about "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" being our most anticipated for the rest of the year. Of course, we are desperately counting the days until the comedy sequel arrives, but there are films that are probably a little higher on our watch-list. And perhaps at the very top is Bong Joon-Ho's "Snowpiercer."
