Other than “Chef” and the still-expanding “Boyhood,” arthouse films have struggled in theaters. But amid the doldrums, the Weinstein Co. has taken some radical steps, playing around with platforms even more than usual. The studio’s Radius-TWC label unveiled “Snowpiercer” on-demand, with Bong Joon-ho’s... 7 years 26 weeks ago via jetli

Chris Evans on the VOD Release of 'Snowpiercer': 'I Absolutely Think the Movie Should Be Seen on the Big Screen' – Chris Evans and “Snowpiercer” are a perfect fit. Not only in that the steel-eyed American oozes the ideal blend of rebellious survivor and reluctant leader for Bong Joon-ho’s indie epic, but because the two actually reflect the best parts of one another.

It’s a strange time we live in where two of the non-‘Transformers’ movies released this weekend are considered small indie films, yet one is a romantic comedy (sort of) staring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler and the other - 'Snowpiercer' - is an action movie starring the guy who plays Captain America.
