This is the big SF I'm looking forward to this year. Finished shooting 2012, looks to be arriving in Europe around August (a comment elsewhere notes that the UK is one of the countries from which they've already recouped half the costs vis licensing, so I'm assuming there will be a theatrical release here).

Recently released character images. I'd initially assumed Song Kang-Ho was the lead but it turns out to be Chris Evans.

It's really strange how little coverage Snowpiercer has gotten so far. After all, it's to be released this summer. (It was planned to be released at the Cannes film festival, but it's just not done yet and was therefore pushed back.) And it's got a great cast with many familiar names, including two Oscar winners. It's got a respected director and this is promising to be his big international break. And not even a teaser? Most movies are talked and written about months and sometimes a year in advance.

Sure, the marketing hasn't been great. The Weinstein Company didn't come on as distributors until the end of last year, and all we've seen so far is a short behind the scenes featurette, some character posters, some concept art and music and an official website that shows very little. All in Korean. For an english speaking film with an a-list cast distributed by an American company, one can find that a little bit odd.

What I know of, no press visited the set or has written any reports or stories, including Empire.

We gotta get this ball rolling!

It's gotten plenty of coverage on Korean sites because, unlike Park and Kim, this is a Korean film - Weinstein have only taken on some distn rights. It's still CJ Ents/ But I've been reading updates since before filming began a year ago.

Yes, I suspected that, since Director Bong is one of the biggest in Korea. But since it is an international film, one might expect more international coverage.

But are you saying that the Weinsteins doesn't have the "responsability" to do any marketing? Would this then be a tactic from the production companies (Moho Films/Stillking et al) to start in Korea and then spread out in the last moment?

No idea. You could ask Empire if they've had any promo stuff coming their way - promoting the films by the production/distribution companies or anyone related isn't allowed on these boards, so we wouldn't see it.

I'm not sure about Tilda Swinton's dental insert though. A bit of Miss Trunchbull about the role.
