Bong Joon-ho‘s Snowpiercer opened in the director’s native South Korea last week…It has broken box-office records at home and is…well-reviewed across the board. But…the film has yet to announce a U.S. opening date. Now we know what the holdup is…Harvey Weinstein reportedly has plans to chop up Snowpiercer, reducing its running time by about 20 minutes…It’s because in his opinion…Midwesterners…”[his] aim is to make sure the film ‘will be understood by audiences in Iowa… and Oklahoma’”…The cuts will remove much of the character work to make the film play more like a traditional action movie…voiceovers will be added to the beginning and end of the film.
