Movie Review – Yoga Hosers (2016)

29 June 2016 7:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yoga Hosers (2016)

Directed By Kevin Smith

Starring Johnny Depp, Lily-Rose Depp, Harley Quinn Smith, Adam Brody, Justin Long, Natasha Lyonne, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Kevin Smith, Tony Hale, Ralph Garman, Tony Hale, Harley Morenstein, Tyler Posey, Austin Butler, Jason Mewes and Vanessa Paradis.

Synopsis:

Two teenage yoga enthusiasts team up with a legendary man-hunter to battle with an ancient evil presence that is threatening their major party plans.

As a director, Kevin Smith has taken a rather divisive career turn in recent years. Gone are the days when the Fatman on Batman was an indie darling churning out critically acclaimed hits like Clerks, Chasing Amy and Dogma, and in his place is a podcaster who no longer cares about film conventions with outings like Red State and Tusk. This is a director who said he was retiring from the game to focus on podcasts, and now finds himself prepping another sequel to Clerks, »

Vigilante Diaries: Exclusive Clip With That Guy, Barry

28 June 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Christian Sesma's action flick Vigilante Diaries opened in limited cinemas across the U.S. back on Friday. ScreenAnarchy has an exclusive short to share with you.    In the clip we meet a few of the other players in the film including Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. As the film is meant to be a throwback to action flicks of the 90s(?) there are fast cars sitting idle, lots of alcohol, and loose women.    Then there is the crew's handler, Barry. Rampage wants to make sure we all know that Barry is known by a certain adjective so he repeats it when Barry walks into their den of iniquity.    Barry has a job for them. A big one. How big? Cue dated humor.    Jason Mewes...

Say what you want about Kevin Smith’s movies, but there’s no denying that they’re products of self-expression.  Like all auteurs, he makes movies for himself, and if you don’t like them it’s not going to stop him from continuing to feed his own artistic hunger.  Granted, his artistic hunger often comes from the munchies, but if that sparks unique creativity then so be it.   When he unleashed Clerks 22 years ago, he was a lowly convenience store »

Kevin Smith is turning his “Mallrats” sequel into a television series

13 June 2016 7:34 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Go figure, just a few days after I wrote last week about Kevin Smith’s next film Yoga Hosers, some news pops up about another project of his. This one is his sequel to Mallrats, which he is going forward with, just in a new form. As you’ll see below, he’s opted to take the sequel and make it as a series on television, instead of as a film, due to some previously unforeseen circumstances. This is a lemonade out of lemons situation, as well as perhaps a hint as to where Smith could see his career begin to focus in the years to come. Either way, it’s something new and exciting in his evolution as a storyteller. The behind the scenes story here is that initially Mallrats 2 or Mallbrats was going to be a movie, but when Smith submitted his script to Universal, he found out it wouldn’t be quite so simple, as they wouldn’t just release the property to him. However, considering how popular his episode of The Flash was on CW, as well as the upcoming television series take on Buckaroo Banzai that he’s launching (and recently sold), Smith quickly pivoted. Now, we’re getting Mallrats: The Series, a TV show which could really be something fun. It’s everything we want from Smith going back to the mall, just spread out over a season of TV instead of in one movie. Count me in. Here’s what I wrote last year when the sequel was announced as a film: “The initial reason that Smith decided to make Mallrats 2 into a film was to honor his friend and Mallrats producer Jim Jacks, who passed away back in 2014. As a way of honoring Jacks, a man who had once upon a time championed a potential sequel, Smith then decided to make it a reality. As much as this could be just another one of those interesting announcements that go nowhere, that hasn’t been the case. Over the weeks and months, Smith would go on social media slowly teasing all of the former cast members who are coming back to the mall, as it were. That’s pretty impressive, regardless of the cast. For those who don’t remember, Mallrats starred Jeremy London, Jason Lee, Shannen Doherty, Claire Forlani, Ethan Suplee, Michael Rooker, Renee Humphrey, Joey Lauren Adams, Jason Mewes, Ben Affleck, as well as Stan Lee in a cameo and of course Smith himself [...] »

Mallrats 2 is now a 10-episode TV series

Mallrats 2 - Aka Mallbrats - is no longer heading to cinemas. Instead, it'll be a 10-part TV show...

You may have seen this slice of news over the weekend, but it still seems worthy of discussion. Kevin Smith’s planned sequel to Mallrats is no longer destined for cinemas. Instead, it’ll be a ten episode TV series.

“We started reconfiguring the idea of doing Mallrats not as a film but as a series, and Universal and I are just about to close our deal to do Mallrats the series,” Smith revealed during an interview on Philadelphia’s Wmmr radio station.

He added: “Then we take it out into the world and find a home for it. So, instead of doing a Mallrats movie, I’m going to do 10 episodes of a Mallrats series.”

Smith headed to Twitter shortly afterwards to confirm the news, and also hinted that his directorial gig on The Flash season 2 played a part in this reconfiguration of Mallrats 2...

Thanks to @CW_TheFlash, I've started setting up shop in scripted TV! First up: #BuckarooBanzai. Next up, #Mallrats! https://t.co/G4Nc4GqcXl

— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) June 10, 2016

Apparently, Philadelphia’s Exton Square Mall is the planned location for the series’ shoot. First, though, Smith and Universal must find a network to sign up as the broadcaster. 

Smith’s Mallrats 2 movie script was previously going by the title Mallbrats. We’ll have to wait and see if that’s still the title when the project reaches our telly screens.

In other Kevin Smith news, the writer-director has also expressed an interest in directing either Daredevil or The Defenders for Marvel Studios/Netflix.

We’ll keep you posted as Smith’s manifold projects continue to develop.

Mallrats 2 Becomes a 10-Episode TV Show

10 June 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last March, director Kevin Smith revealed that he is making a sequel to his 1995 comedy Mallrats, with the filmmaker teasing the addition of practically every main cast member from the original movie. Last May, the filmmaker said that the sequel will be called MallBrats, and that he has a completed script, with another report from September revealing that shooting would begin in January 2016. That was the last we heard about the project, but during a new radio interview, the filmmaker revealed that this sequel has now transformered into a TV series.

Kevin Smith explained in a previous update that he would shoot Mallrats 2 at the Exton Square Mall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but as he revealed in a radio interview with Philadelphia's Wmmr, his plan hit a big snag. The director's agent originally told him that Universal would likely just let the rights to Mallrats go for the director to make a sequel. »

Kevin Smith’s “Yoga Hosers” gets a quirky Trailer

7 June 2016 4:13 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Nobody does things quite like Kevin Smith does. For some, that’s a negative, but I’m all about what Smith chooses to do as a filmmaker, along with what he does as a podcaster and just entertainer in general. Chasing Amy is one of my top three favorite movies of all time, and I’ve yet to see a film of his that I haven’t liked. The True North Trilogy of Canadian horror titles that he’s concentrating on is fairly interesting, as Tusk was very underrated. Next up is Yoga Hosers, which dropped a strange little Trailer yesterday. You can see that below at the end of the article, but right now I wanted to discuss the film a bit and Smith’s current cinematic choices as well. Come with me on this journey…starting now! The flick, for those who don’t know, is a teenage girl themed horror comedy. »

Shortly thereafter, the first trailer and poster were released, with the tour kicking off on June 1 in New Orleans.

One More Full-Length Trailer for Kevin Smith's Wacky 'Yoga Hosers'

6 June 2016 5:41 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Ms. Wicklund, this isn't the real world." "This is Canada." Another new full-length trailer has debuted for Kevin Smith's latest feature, a goofy twisted horror comedy of sorts called Yoga Hosers. This stars Smith's own daughter Harley Quinn Smith plus Johnny Depp's daughter, Lily-Rose Melody Depp, and the two play teenage yoga enthusiasts from Winnipeg who unearth some weird ancient Nazi evil and must battle a sausage army. It's as totally wacky as it sounds. The full cast includes Johnny Depp, Haley Joel Osment, Kevin Conroy, Jason Mewes, Justin Long, and Vanessa Paradis. This trailer gives away most of the film, including some of the final battle and one of the big cameos, but hey, at least it's free to watch. Enjoy. Here's the second official trailer (see the first) for Kevin Smith's Yoga Hosers, in high def from Apple: Set in the Great White North of Canada, »
