It seems the Clerks director is moving away from comedy and keeping with his new horror vibe.
Smith announced during his panel that Tusk, a movie that sees a podcaster be turned into a Walrus by a psychopath, will be the first part of the “True North Trilogy“. The other movies will be the previously announced Yoga Hosers and the newly announced Moose Jaws.
Being described by the director as “Jaws with a moose”, Moose Jaws will feature some of the same cast as Tusk and will have a scene where a moose eats a little girl.

Commentaries to accompany a film are an add-on which have polarised the film loving community. Admittedly most wonder why they would waste their time committing to a 2-hour breakdown of a film when the actual movie is far more entertaining on its own. This school of thought was best expressed by actor-director Woody Allen – one of a handful of film makers to have never made an accompanying audio track – who said “I want my films to speak for themselves. And hopefully they do”. These views are shared by the likes of Steven Spielberg and David Lynch and a large percentage of the cinematic community.
However, there is a small yet passionate sub-community of commentary lovers. These people will happily repurchase a DVD or Blu-ray they already own just to gain access to some new insight via the commentary. Though it is indubitable that there are some commentaries that truly aren »

Filmmaker Tim Burton is very much a fan of working with the same actors on more than a single project – (in)famously so where it concerns Johnny Depp – and he looks to keep that practice alive in the future, including with his upcoming film adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ popular novel, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Variety is reporting that Eva Green has entered talks to play the Miss Peregrine character, who in Riggs’ book is (or, rather, was) the caretaker of an orphanage for children who possess strange and mysterious abilities – in other words, she’s the Professor X to the eponymous Home for Peculiar Children. The protagonist of ...

Now that he’s finished work on his real-life art drama Big Eyes, Tim Burton is heading back into the realm of the fantastical, eyeing a February start date for Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. And he’s looking to reunite with one of his Dark Shadows cast for the film – no, not Johnny Depp... Eva Green.Based on Ransom Riggs’ novel, which Chernin Entertainment bought for 20th Century Fox back in 2011, the story follows 16 year-old Jacob, who has grown up hearing tales of the titular orphanage’s odd residents from his grandfather. They included a girl who always floated slightly above the ground, another who could safely hold fire in her hands and twins who had a psychic connection.When granddad suddenly dies, leaving behind a message for his grandson, Jacob makes the trip to the ancestral home on a strange island off the coast of Wales. »
The trailer shows Justin Long being driven to the point of insanity by a mad man played by Michael Parks. Long is a podcaster who decides to travel to the backwoods of Canada to interview a reclusive old man, only to wind up falling victim to the deranged killer’s bizarre fetish. Parks will stop at nothing to turn Long into a … walrus.
Smith conceived and wrote the low-budget pic in about 20 days. The project originated as a joke on one of his SModcasts. He later asked his followers to tweet whether or not he should pursue the film and #yeswalrus prevailed.

The trailer for Kevin Smith's comedy-horror made its debut at Comic Con yesterday (July 25).
However, it soon becomes clear that the walrus-obsessed Parks wants to do more than just talk.
The idea behind the film came from a joke on Smith's own podcast. He subsequently asked Twitter followers to vote on whether or not the film should be made.
Feathered lingerie, mobster chic and a toothpaste attack -- stars are rocking all the wrong trends this week! Selena Gomez raised some eyebrows at the Ischia Global Film & Music Fest 2014 this week in Italy, rocking a white, sheer rose-embroidered shirt with a matching tulle skirt from Blumarine. While we applaud the "Come & Get It" singer for taking a fashion risk, she looks like a cater waiter dressed as a lingerie model dressed as a bird. Robin Wright showed off her toned arms on the red carpet at the premiere of "A Most Wanted Man" in New York City on Tuesday, sporting something Johnny Depp would wear!The blonde beauty seems to be channeling a 40's mobster in this masculine ensemble. Skinny black jeans, loose white pants, or really any bottoms would solve the style problem. A swap of the boots might also help.And, Joanne Froggatt landed on our worst »

Last night, filmmaker Kevin Smith took to the stage at Hall H of the San Diego Comic-Con to bring the curtain down on Friday’s festivities with The Musk of Tusk: An Evening with Kevin Smith, during which he debuted the very first trailer for his upcoming horror Tusk.
Spinning out of a podcast discussion, Tusk stars Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers) as a podcaster who falls foul of a deranged scientist played by Michael Parks (Red State). Think The Human Centipede, but with a walrus. And a horrific moustache.
Also featuring in the cast are Genesis Rodriquez (The Last Stand), Haley Joel Osmont (The Sixth Sense), Harley Morenstein (Epic Meal Time), Ralph Garman (Family Guy) and Johnny Depp (The Lone Ranger).
Anyway, take a look at the first trailer for Tusk here…
Tusk opens in the States on September 19th. No word on a UK release as yet.

The novel centres on an Iowa teenager who unleashes a swarm of human-sized praying mantises to wreak havoc on the local population.
You have to be a pretty brave guy to battle a headless horsemen, or a bike gang, or Nazi Germany and the crazy crowds at Comic-Con. But on Friday afternoon at EW’s Brave New Warriors panel, hosted by our very own Darren Franich, actors Freddie Highmore (Bates Motel), Jon Bernthal (Fury), Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow), Theo Rossi (Sons of Anarchy) and Brenton Thwaites (The Giver) showed how tough it can be to be the tough guy in the spotlight. Here are the highlights:
• Highmore, Mison, and Thwaites are all playing characters with a storied history already documented in previous movies, »

Though he left Marvel's Ant-Man, it appears Edgar Wright hasn’t got the idea of insects completely out of his system. Sony has now secured his services for the adaptation of Andrew Smith Dutton’s novel Grasshopper Jungle.It’s an intriguing project for Wright, and very different from anything he’s done before, despite Scott Pilgrim’s blend of youthful issues and fantasy. Beautiful Girls writer Scott Rosenberg is adapting the story, which finds an Iowa teenager in the grip of hormonal madness. Along with his friends, he somehow unleashes a genetically engineered plague that causes six-foot tall praying mantises upon their community and beyond. Teenagers today, huh? Bloomin’ typical: if they’re not playing with their X-stations or their digital watches, they’re playing God.This will not be Wright’s next film – he most recently re-committed to developing Baby Driver, one of his long-gestating projects.

The U.S. majors enjoyed a big comeback at the Chinese box office in the first half of 2014, after stumbling in 2013 — but with the local B.O. growing by 25% over the same period in 2013, there’s enough upside for local filmmakers, too.
“China has been growing at this pace for the past five years,” says Y.C. Chu, g.m. of Hong Kong’s Emperor Motion Pictures. “We see no reason to think it will stop any time in the next five years, and if you have good cinemas, we can see growth continuing for seven years.”
Indeed, Emperor has redoubled its bet in the territory, recently diversifying from production, finance and distribution into mainland Chinese exhibition for the first time, inaugurating a 12-plex in the Guangdong Province city of Foshan just last month.
The Chinese box office delivered a cumulative gross of RMB13.6 billion ($2.2 billion) in the January to June period, »

We finally know when the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie will hit theaters, as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has been handed a July 7, 2017 release date. Walt Disney Pictures just announced that the beloved franchise, starring Johnny Depp as the kohl-rimmed, eccentric pirate, will only be delayed (as previously announced) a few years due to script rewrites. The fifth installment in the series will (if rumors are true) find Jack and company in search of the Trident, battling the villainous Captain Brand (a ghost) for control of the valuable spear. Brand blames Jack for his death, as Sparrow turned Brand’s brother Eric into a pirate, eventually leading to the specter's demise. And it wouldn’t be a Pirates movie without a love subplot. Jack...

Will Benedict Cumberbatch join the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe or not? While at the San Diego Comic Con to plug his new animated film "Penguins of Madagascar," the fan favorite "Sherlock" star was inevitably asked to confirm or deny rumors that he's in the running to play Marvel's "Doctor Strange" on the big screen. “As far as I’m aware, even if that was the case, it couldn’t work out because I’m doing a little play called ‘Hamlet’ in London," he told MTV. "So I don’t think I could even if that was in the cards. It sounds like a fantastic project. It’s a shame if I miss out, but who knows?” He also sidestepped a question about even meeting with Marvel. “I couldn’t possibly comment," Cumberbatch said, which many fans will no doubt translate as "I've met with them." It's not exactly a flat-out denial, »

Okay let's start with the facts. 1. Robin Wright is ripped, therefore she looks killer in this tank. 2. There are no "rules of the red carpet" these days, therefore the Netflix star can wear whatever she damn well pleases. But also 3. This getup looks an awful lot like what Johnny Depp would wear to this same event—minus a wildly over-sized gangster blazer, of course. It's reason number three that makes it difficult for us to support this iconic actress. She's taken a risk we admire, but she kind of looks like a mobster from the '40s as a result. Skinny black jeans, loose white pants, or really any bottoms would solve the style problem. A swap of the boots might also »

Dead men tell no tales, but it looks like the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has at least one more story in it. The fifth installment of the film series, Dead Men Tell No Tales, was officially given a release date of July 7, 2017. Originally, the sequel was set to premiere in summer 2015, but after the $190 million flop that was summer 2013’s The Lone Ranger—starring Pirates’ Johnny Depp and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and co., the same team behind the franchise—the release was delayed [...] »
