Over the past few decades, Kevin Smith has become a staple in the Indie Film world. Being an influence for young filmmakers with his rare observations, while reinventing himself every time he steps behind a camera. That’s no different with his new film Tusk. As five new photos have been released, showing that Smith may be pushing the envelope even further this time around.
So far, we have seen one crazy and somewhat disturbing trailer for the movie. Really highlighting Smith’s ability to write a bizarre and terrifying film, while including just a bit of his well known comedy.
Here are the five new and very creepy images showing Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, and Genesis Rodriguez in their respective roles.
Wallace (Justin Long) co-hosts a popular podcast with his pal Teddy (Haley Joel Osment), focusing on cruel and mocking cringe humour as part of their mission to keep it “real and raunchy.” After a trip to Winnipeg to interview a teen whose unfortunate samurai-sword video has gone viral comes up empty, Wallace decides to make the trip worth his while and find a good story north of the forty-ninth parallel. A handwritten flyer he finds in a bar bathroom leads him to a grizzled old swab (Michael Parks) full of tall tales to share from his life of adventure at sea. This is where Wallace’s voyage to the Great White North descends into straight-up madness.
Tusk is out in theaters on September 19th, 2014. Directed by Kevin Smith starring Justin Long, Michael Parks, Genesis Rodriguez, Haley Joel Osment, Harley Quinn Smith, and Harley Morenstein.
