‘Snowpiercer’ Will Be Released Uncut in the U.S.

‘Snowpiercer’ Will Be Released Uncut in the U.S.

South Korean director Joon-ho Bong and The Weinstein Company have come to an agreement on the release of Snowpiercer, which may be released in the U.S. later this year. The studio will now release the filmmaker's full two-and-a-half hour cut domestically, although in limited release.

Back in August, we reported that Harvey Weinstein demanded that the filmmaker cut at least 20 minutes from the movie, to make it more accessible for American audiences. Later that month, Joon-ho Bong revealed that the cuts Harvey Weinstein asked for were not as excessive as originally reported, although we still haven't heard anything about an American release of the sci-fi action drama until now. One of the director's stipulations in his contract with The Weinstein Company was that the movie would be given a wide release. Both parties compromised, with the original cut now being given a limited release with a roll out to additional markets. The studio has not issued a specific release date at this time.
