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?
A handful of new stills have arrived courtesy of Radius, giving yet another look inside the train where the movie takes place. The story follows the passengers on the the titular Snowpiercer, a train that houses the only human survivors after a catastrophic event has rendered Earth frozen and uninhabitable. But humans being humans, a class system still exists on the train, revolt brews, and things get ugly.
So, is this a masterpiece just waiting to be seen? While our critic who saw the film last fall loved it, another Playlist writer agreed with Harvey Weinstein — the movie could’ve stood to lose 20 minutes. Controversy!
“Snowpiercer” opens on June 27th. New images below and a new red-band trailer too.
