Radius-TWC (Finally) Sets June Release Date for Joon-ho Bong's 'Snowpiercer'

After much debate over what cut would make it to theaters, Joon Ho-Bong’s much anticipated “Snowpiercer” has finally received a release date from Radius-TWC. American audiences can finally see the festival favorite on June 27, according to BoxOfficeMojo.

The summer release date indicates at least some degree of optimism at the box office from Harvey Weinstein & Co. Starring Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, and John Hurt, “Snowpiercer” tells the story of evolving class systems onboard a train circling the world thanks to a perpetual motion engine. Dealing with social issues, global warming, and Chris Evans’ mangy beard, the film carries the weight of a freight engine and hopes to attract audiences venturing out for blockbuster fare this summer with its commentary, clashes, and cast.

Much has been made about the film’s long journey to cinemas. Now that a date is finally here, how excited are you, dear readers? Do you expect to see the best cut of the film come June, or will you anticipate various versions upon its Blu-ray release down the line?
