South Korea has definitely taken a page from us when it comes to a marketing onslaught. With Bong Joon-ho‘s Snowpiercer, it’s not too surprising when you consider that it’s the most expensive movie in the country’s history. This marketing blitz has paid off with the movie breaking South Korea’s box office records. Today, three mini-featurettes have found their way online, and they all highlight the action that Harvey Weinstein probably wants in his slimmed down, U.S. version of the movie. The featurettes focus on the characters played Chris Evans, Kang-ho Song, and Tilda Swinton. Kang-ho’s featurette isn’t translated to English, but it still contains some nice footage of his character.
Hit the jump to check out the featurettes, and click here for Steve’s interview with Evans where the actor talks about Weinstein’s controversial decision to cut twenty minutes from the movie. The film also stars John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, and Ko Asung. Snowpiercer currently doesn’t have a U.S. release date.
