Snowpiercer will be out on Taiwanese Blu-ray, and it appears that its region coding will be friendly to the west. You might want to keep this version in mind given the fact that the US rights holder is beyond infamous for shall we say…”alterations”. The reviews were not great, but one would still would rather see it in its original form. Directer Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Mother) brings this frozen tale based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige.
Snowpiercer will be released on June 6th, 2014 on Blu-ray (Taiwan R-A) & DVD (Taiwan R-3) from Deltamac (Taiwan).
Synopsis: All is not so serene on the train after all. The tail section of the train swarms with the poor and the starving. The golden front section is home to the few remaining members of the establishment, who enjoy a luxurious life of wine and steak. After 17 years of suffering, tail section leaders Curtis and Gilliam have begun secret planning a revolution. Now the day that the people of the tail section rise up against the soldiers’ violent rifles has arrived. Young revolutionary Curtis advances with one goal in mind: to meet Wilford, the creator of the train and keeper of its perpetual engine. Without knowing what unexpected turns lurk on their journey, Curtis and his comrades keep pushing to the front where Wilford awaits.
