Excited for Kevin's Smith's Tusk, heading our way this fall from A24 Films? If you'll be at San Diego Comic-Con in a few weeks, you'll be able to watch the trailer debut, but in the meantime we can all enjoy the film's official poster.

Movie Review – Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie (2013)

3 July 2014 4:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie, 2013

Directed by Steve Stark

Featuring the voice talent of Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Ralph Garman, Eliza Dushku, Tara Strong, Jon Lovitz, Jennifer Schwalbach, Neil Gaiman and Kevin Conroy.

Synopsis:

Jay and Silent Bob hit the lottery jackpot, and use their cash windfall to become crime-fighting superheroes.

There is a lot that can be said for nostalgia. Many people look back at things we loved from our childhoods with rose tinted glasses and will often ignore their flaws because we remember them so dearly. In the mid-90s and early 2000s, Kevin Smith was riding high (no pun intended) with his comedy duo Jay and Silent Bob. The pair had debuted in Smith’s Clerks and would be recurring characters in Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma before getting their own movie, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, in 2001. The pair had comic books, »

50 brilliant movie opening credits sequences

25 June 2014 2:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a range of eras and genres, here's Jenny and Alex's light-hearted pick of 50 great opening title sequences from the movies...

Odd List

We don’t go to the cinema much, because we hate people. We also don’t go because there’s always the risk of accidentally going to see the wrong film. It's not helped by the fact that there's no way of telling until it’s too late, because there are no bloody opening credits on lots of modern films. And by the time you do realise, you’ve eaten all your popcorn and you can’t be bothered to move.

The movies on this list won’t give you that problem. These opening credits are perfect scene setters for the movies that follow, so you won’t have to worry about awkward popcorn wasting moments. It's not a top 50, rather a selection of 50 interesting credits sequences, »

2 June 2014 3:59 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Kevin Smith took to Instagram to reveal a behind-the-scenes image from his movie Tusk, which features a look at a very bloody Justin Long. We like when Long is bloody. He was pretty neat when his peepers were removed too.

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has snatched up Smith's monster flick, which is thus far the biggest Hollywood studio deal at Berlin's European Film Market.

Spwa has bought Tusk for the U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Italy, Benelux, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, South Africa, Portugal, Spain and Greece. Additional territories are yet to be announced.

A24 Films had already scooped up domestic rights and will release Tusk in theaters this fall.

Phase 4 snaps up Super Groovy

6 March 2014 9:56 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Phase 4 Films has acquired North American rights to Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie from SModcast Pictures.

Produced by Jason Mewes, written by Kevin Smith and directed by first time filmmaker Steve Stark, Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie follows the convenience store stoners from Clerks as they win the lottery and transform themselves into costumed avengers.

The parody features the voice talents of Mewes, Eliza Dushku, Tara Strong, Ralph Garman, Ben Gleib, Jennifer Schwalbach, author Neil Gaiman and Stan Lee. Phase 4 will release the film on May 6.

“Most comic book movies have a budget of $100m or more,” said Smith. “This is what a comic book movie looks like at $69,000. Yes, the budget was only $69,000, and yes, that naughty number was insisted upon by our producer, Jason Mewes.”

Larry Greenberg brokered the deal on behalf of Phase 4 Films with Wme Global and Jordan Monsanto on behalf of SModcast Pictures. »

'EuroTrip' 10th Anniversary: Cast reveals 10 things you might not know about the movie

21 February 2014 9:08 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It has been ten years since EuroTrip, riding the raunchy teen comedy revival of the late ’90s and early naughts, burst into theaters and exposed an entire generation of teens to a beach full of dangling male genitalia. And even a decade later, those involved with the cult classic are still proud of it — every sex organ included.

At least, that was the vibe taken away from the audience Wednesday night in Hollywood, where cast members Scott Mechlowicz (“Scotty”), Jacob Pitts (“Cooper”), Michelle Trachtenberg (“Jenny”), Travis Wester (“Jamie”) joined producers Jeff Schaffer, Alec Berg, and David Mandel and several others for a Q&A session. »

10 February 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hanks recently enjoyed a reunion with two of his Forrest Gump co-stars, Gary Sinise and Mykelti Williamson.

The actor posted a picture of himself with Sinise and Williamson, who played Lieutenant Dan and Bubba respectively in the 1994 movie, on his Twitter.

"Hadn't seen these old friends for too long," he tweeted along with the photo.

As the classic heartfelt movie approaches its 20th anniversary, we take a look back at what the main stars of the drama have gone on to accomplish since.

Tom Hanks

Hanks gave a heartbreaking and poignant Academy Award-winning performance as the endearing Forrest Gump in Robert Zemeckis's drama.

The 57-year-old actor reunited with the film's director for the critically acclaimed Cast Away in 2000 and again for 2004's animated The Polar Express.

Hanks has since appeared in a long list of successful movies including Saving Private Ryan, The Green Mile and The Da Vinci Code, »

Kevin Smith Delays Clerks III for Horror Anthology Comes the Krampus

10 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Those looking forward to the return of Jay and Silent Bob in Kevin Smith’s anticipated Clerks III will have to wait a little while longer, because Smith has announced that, come April, he’ll be starting production on his second horror film, Comes the Krampus.

Taking to Reddit, the filmmaker revealed that, with Tusk nearing completion, the original plan was for him to gear up to shoot Clerks III. But now he’s had a change of heart. Clerks III will still happen, but it’s Comes the Krampus that has him hooked right now, so much so that he has to make it next. And fortunately for us, he’s making it very soon.

Smith co-wrote the holiday horror anthology with Andy McElfresh. McElfresh will direct the episode, The Krampus vs. The 3rd Grade; long-time collaborator Jason Mewes will helm period episode, Hitler’s Krampus; Smith will direct the Gothic horror piece, »

Kevin Smith announces Krampus anthology horror movie

26 January 2014 11:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For someone contemplating his retirement a year ago, Kevin Smith has certainly found a new wave of inspiration, thanks in no small part to his various SModcast podcasts. Episodes have already inspired the upcoming horror Tusk and the kaiju Jesus feature Helena Handbag, and now Smith has announced that he's working on another Christmas-themed horror anthology entitled Comes the Krampus. Here's what Smith has had to say, via his official blog...

If you listen to the Edumacation podcast, you’ll remember that episode 20 (Part 2 of the Christmas eps) consisted of another dopey conversation that resulted in a screenplay – a’la SModcast and Tusk. I was goofing around with Mr. Edumacation himself, Professor Andy McElfresh, when we accidentally brainstormed a Christmas horror anthology that would eschew the gruesome spin on Santa Claus, and instead embrace the Scandinavian/German Kid-Eating Christmas creature known as the The Krampus. That podcast was released 12/23/13.
