Kevin Smith’s second movie in his True North trilogy, Yoga Hosers, debuted at Sundance last week and was trashed by virtually every outlet and critic. The movie, which stars his daughter Harley Quinn Smith and Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose, was described by the director as “the movie I always wanted to see when I was a 12-year old girl”.
“I was at 3 screenings, and it played wonderfully,” he said on his Hollywood Babble-On podcast. “It was a wonderful experience watching the girls ascend and start doing interviews. People ate them up like candy, it was really fucking sweet. The critics on the other hand – holy fuck. Like I get it, the movie’s not for everyone. And based on what I read it’s not for anyone. But, wow. I was ready for it, but I didn’t read much. I just got a sense from everyone around me. »

Cinetel holds worldwide rights and will screen Vigilante Diaries in Berlin in February 11. Christian Sesma directed and Mike Hatton of Ton Of Hats produced with Asko Akopyan of Oscar Gold Productions and Nick Vallelonga of Vallelonga Productions.

Lily-Rose Depp and Harley Quinn Smith play high school sophomores Colleen Collette and Colleen McKenzie. When they get invited to a senior party, the two accidentally discover an ancient evil buried beneath their Canadian convenience store.
In the clip, the ultra-cool Hunter Calloway, played by “The Shannara Chronicles'” Austin Butler, extends the invite. Tyler Posey of “Teen Wolf” plays his friend, who is apparently “the very definition of suck. »
