New Trailer & Featurettes For From Bong Joon-ho's 'Snowpiercer'

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...

Are you excited for Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer"? Well, of course you are, but it's a bit of a 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...

A new trailer and a batch of featurettes have dropped for the movie, set aboard a moving train, in which the the upper class resides in luxury while the lower classes eke it out in the less desirable sections, all while a ravaged Earth sits outside. (So kinda like a super contained "Elysium"?) Naturally, those below don't want to keep their place and an uprising begins, which will seem to involve lots of hand-to-hand combat involving axes and spears. Damn. After the trailer, check out a bunch of character-driven featurettes with even more footage and a weird animated trailer thing...we're not quiet sure what that's for.

As we said, no word yet on when "Snowpiercer" will dock in our station, but we continue to patiently wait.... [The Film Stage]
