There are a lot of different routes that a movie can take in Hollywood but most of the time, when a film has a cast film of big Hollywood names, it is usually fairly successful at the box office. When it comes to the movie Snowpiercer though, that was certainly not the case, as the movie had a cast full of Hollywood stars but was released on VOD just two weeks after its theatrical release.
Snowpiercer has hit a lot of problems on the road to get a release and, at one point, it almost looked like we would not get to see the movie. Captain America star Chris Evans stars in Snowpiercer and he has been talking about the movie, how well received it has been and the problems it has faced getting released.
Evans explained, "I’ve been surprised about everything about this movie. I mean, every movie you make, you hope people will enjoy it. But this movie has kind of surpassed all of my expectations across the board. Every single day I have people emailing me and texting me and just saying the most wonderful things about this."
He added, "But in terms of the way it was released, like I’ve said; I’m a little green. But it has been a constant surprise and a constant satisfaction, in terms of the way people are receiving it. Whether it be in a theater or whether it’s on VOD, it has been phenomenal. But, like I said, I’m still learning. So I don’t really know if I have an opinion, in terms of how it could have or should have been released."
As well as starring Chris Evans, the impressive Snowpiercer cast also includes such stars as Ed Harris, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Ah-sung Ko, Alison Pill and Luke Pasqualino.
