We’re about a month away from the U.S. release of Kevin Smith’s horror Tusk, which was reported to be the first part of a Canadian-based trilogy, and now Smith has confirmed that production has started on the second instalment, Yoga Hosers.
The Hollywood Reporter states that the film will follow two 15-year old girls Colleen Collette (Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Smith) who work in convenience store Eh-2-Zed as an after school job. But when an ancient evil rises, the two girls team with Guy Lapointe (Depp) to fight to save their invitation to a Grade 12 party.
Smith has described the movie as an action-adventure film with a comic book vibe. “People always ask me ‘Are »

It follows next month’s Tusk, starring Justin Long and Haley Joel Osment, who will also appear in Hosers.

Kevin Smith has come a long way since 1994 when he appeared for the first time as the tight-lipped character Silent Bob. Over the past 20 years, the screenwriter, actor, producer, and director has released a number of cult classics, all featuring that same stoic character. And while Mallrats, Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back each have their fans, it probably wouldn’t be wrong to say that none of them have made as much of an impact as his first film, Clerks.
Filmed after hours in the convenience store where Smith worked, Clerks cost only $30,000 to make but went on to earn $3 million in very limited release, winning two awards at the ...

Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie, 2013
Directed by Steve Stark
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, »

Kevin Smith is becoming a fanboy gadfly who's insider information and set access has left many fans jealous and excited about what's happening in geek culture. Since it was announced, the director of such fan favorite films as Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Kevin Smith has had unprecedented access to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice due to his close ties with star Ben Affleck. Now his friendship with director J.J. Abrams is coming in handy, as he just paid a visit to the set of Star Wars: Episode VII at Pinewood Studios in the U.K.
Unlike the various hints and tidbits Kevin Smith has dropped about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the past few months, the filmmaker didn't have any words in regards to what he saw at Pinewood Studios. But the picture he shared with his followers speaks louder than words. It »
Hello again, dear readers. I hope you’re enjoying the summer movie season. This week takes a break from the big blockbusters, with the two major releases being Clint Eastwood’s musical Jersey Boys and the completely unnecessary comedy sequel Think Like a Man Too. And in the spirit of offbeat releases, this week’s slightly-delayed installment of Trailer Trashin’ features the upcoming comedy-drama Birdman.
Premise: Washed-up actor Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) – famous for playing the iconic superhero Birdman – struggles to mount a Broadway play, an adaptation of Raymond Carver’s 1981 short story collection What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.
My take: For people my age and younger, it’s getting hard to remember a time when superheroes haven’t been a huge part of movies. »

I love it when I'm watching a movie and all of a sudden, out of nowhere there's a surprise appearance by a big, well-known actor. Sometimes the roles are funny, sometimes actors parody themselves, and then there are times when we get an incredible dramatic performance. There are a ton of great movie cameos out there, but I thought I'd put together a list of 20 cameos and small movie roles that I have enjoyed over the years.
There are some famous cameos such as Stan Lee's Marvel movie cameos and the Anchorman cameos that I purposely left off the list because they seem to be obvious choices.
Look over my list and let me know what your favorite movie cameos are in the comment section!
This is by far my favorite movie cameo of all time. Murray is absolutely hilarious in every way. »
