Watch: First Trailer for Kevin Smith's Weird Walrus Movie 'Tusk'

22 minutes ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Walrus Yes! After hosting a panel at Comic-Con 2014 for Tusk, filmmaker Kevin Smith and A24 Films have debuted the trailer online for your viewing pleasure. Or distaste, perhaps. The movie is about a man, played by Michael Parks, who wants to make another human, played by Justin Long, into a walrus. Kind of like Human Centipede but with a weird, wacky, funny Kevin Smith twist. In addition to those two, the cast includes Genesis Rodriguez as his girlfriend, and Haley Joel Osment (yea, him!) as another friend, who go on the hunt for him when he goes missing. I must say this actually looks pretty damn good, although it looks really fucked up. But I'm glad there's some humor to it, too. Not much is revealed in this, so enjoy! Here's the first official trailer for Kevin Smith's Tusk, direct from A24 Films: Tusk is the new film written »

Kevin Smith has been enjoying himself lately, visiting the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, dropping hints when it comes to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and even being part of an upcoming documentary looking at Tim Burton's abandoned Superman movie. Now it's time to look at his own new film, Tusk, which A24 will be releasing in theaters on September 14 and I fully expect to be a part of Midnight Madness at this year's Toronto Film Festival. The film follows Wallace (Justin Long) a journalist on a mission. He finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Michael Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses. Check out the trailer for Tusk below. sb id="965575" height="360" width="640" »

Kevin Smith's Bonkers Horror 'Tusk' Debuts First Splendidly Psychotic Trailer

49 minutes ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As a filmmaker and pop culture icon, Kevin Smith is a polarizing figure - even within his own fanbase. Some want him to keep cranking out potty-mouthed social situations, while others wouldn.t mind if he retired and stuck with podcasting and Tweeting about Batman. With his upcoming horror flick Tusk, Smith apparently took everyone.s opinions about his career and threw them in the bottom of the ocean, or wherever it is that walruses like to hang out and scare the shit out of people. The film.s first trailer, seen above, is wholly unlike anything the director has put out in the past, and even though it seemingly gives away a lot of the plot, I.ll be damned if it isn.t one of the creepiest trailers I.ve ever seen in my life.

Watch the First Trailer for Kevin Smith’s Tusk

2 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

His film journey began in a convenience store, but now he’s taking viewers to a remote place in the wilderness that’s far away from the safety of the snack aisle. In Kevin Smith’s upcoming horror film, Tusk, a journalist thinks he’s found the perfect interview in a worldwide traveler and walrus lover, but all he’s really discovered is a gateway to a painful transformation at the hands of a psychopath. Tusk will hit theaters this fall and we have the first trailer that was recently unveiled in Comic-Con’s Hall H.

Tusk follows Wallace (Long), a journalist on a mission. He finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses.”

Tusk is directed and written by Kevin Smith, based on a conversation he had with friend Scott Mosier in the 259th episode of SModcast, »

Kevin Smith’s Tusk To Hit Theatres In September

18 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Longtime film aficionado (and sometimes filmmaker) Kevin Smith revealed on Twitter Thursday that A24 will release his horror thriller Tusk on Sept. 19, 2014. He also announced on the social media site that the trailer for his latest will premiere at his Comic-Con panel on July 25, one endearingly titled “The Musk of Tusk: An Evening with Kevin Smith.” Two of the film’s stars, Genesis Rodriguez and Haley Joel Osment, will be present in Hall H next Friday, as well.

The thriller originated from an idea on the writer/director’s SModcast podcasts. Smith and producing pal Scott Mosier talked about a situation where a homeowner could live in a place free of charge if he or she agreed to dress as a walrus. Smith asked his Twitter followers to tweet “#WalrusYes” if this had potential to become a feature film. Alas, based on the movie’s title and teaser poster »

Chong is a veteran of British TV, having starred in the likes of "Monroe," "Line of Duty," "Whitechapel" and "Doctor Who". She most recently appeared in "24: Live Another Day." [Source: Latino Review]

Venom

Alex Kurtzman has pretty much confirmed his old partner's comments from earlier this week that Sony remains undecided about the future of the Spider-Man franchise, namely its spin-offs, at the moment with everything still uncertain:

"Everybody is still figuring it out. It’s all up for grabs, right now. We’re just trying to figure it out. Everything is still on the table, right now. Because it’s a universe outside of the Spider-Man universe, even though it’s connected to it, those movies have to stand on their own. »

Poster Debut of Kevin Smith’s Tusk

9 July 2014 6:04 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Kevin Smith’s previous entry into genre cinema, Red State, was received with mixed results. Many people were upset on how he handled the “sale” at Sundance but honestly, when you look past all that, he crafted a pretty intense film. Michael Parks was chilling, downright chilling. Guess what, Parks is back for Smith’s latest tale in fright with Tusk. Smith even claims “Oddly enough, it’s the best film I’ve ever made (or at the very least, the most interesting).” For a little background on the film, listeners of Smith’s Smodcast first heard the idea for Tusk on the show after a story was told about a man who was offering free living arrangements to anyone willing to dress as a walrus. Obviously, Tusk won’t be that simple (or at least, I hope not). Smith asked his Twitter followers to tweet/respond with #WalrusYes or »

Poster released for Kevin Smith’s Tusk

9 July 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kevin Smith has been on this site quite a lot recently with talk of Clerks III (see here and here), Star Wars Episode VII (see here and here) and being rumoured and subsequently denying his involvement in the fake script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

So, it was quite smart of the director to use this time to promote his upcoming movie, Tusk.

On his blog Silent Bob Speaks, Smith debuted the poster while squashing reports he had written the leaked script. He writes…

While you’re here, however? That script for Tusk that I wrote? We turned into an actual movie that’s coming out this fall from A24. Oddly enough, it’s the best film I’ve ever made (or at the very least, the most interesting). Thank you all for saying #WalrusYes on Twitter last year. Can’t wait to show you the movie. In the meantime, »
