A24's FIRST COW Trailer From Kelly Reichardt

Kelly Reichardt once again trains her perceptive and patient eye on the Pacific Northwest, this time evoking an authentically hardscrabble early nineteenth century way of life. A taciturn loner and skilled cook ( John Magaro ) has traveled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon Territory, though he only finds true connection with a Chinese immigrant (Orion Lee) also seeking his fortune; soon the two collaborate on a successful business, although its longevity is reliant upon the clandestine participation of a nearby wealthy landowner’s prized milking cow. From this simple premise Reichardt constructs an interrogation of foundational Americana that recalls her earlier triumph Old Joy in its sensitive depiction of male friendship, yet is driven by a mounting suspense all its own. Reichardt again shows her distinct talent for depicting the peculiar rhythms of daily living and ability to capture the immense, unsettling quietude of rural America. Discuss this with fellow SJ

Movie Review: It Comes at Night

It Comes at Night is mostly well-done. Mostly. Review by Brandon Wolfe ***This review contains some spoilers*** It Comes at Night , the much-buzzed-about new horror film, centers around a group of people struggling to stay alive inside a cabin in the woods, but don’t get the wrong idea. Evil Dead , this ain’t. In fact, it’s more a thriller than the pure-horror experience its trailers are selling you. The film is pulling something of a bait-and-switch that I don’t expect will go over well with audiences once the lights come back up. People don’t like getting something other than what they expressly believed they were signing up for. It Comes at Night isn’t selling you a bill of goods, exactly, but neither is it being entirely straightforward about what it really is. A family is living in a reinforced home deep in the woods, donning gas masks when venturing outside. We soon learn that the world has been ravaged by some sort of mysterious and deadly virus. How the virus is transmi

Be A Part Of @ThatKevinSmith Film @tuskthemovie

We’re bringing #WalrusYes full circle! If you are a Kevin Smith fan, then you’ve probably heard how his new film, TUSK , came to be. It was through the passionate efforts of his fans that encouraged him to make it a reality. If fans see a Thursday night showing of TUSK (we are having 8pm and 10pm showings in most theaters), they get their names added to the credits of the film when it comes out on DVD. All they have to do is take a picture of their ticket stub and post it to twitter or instagram with #WalrusYes and #TGITusk. It’s the film that was greenlit by fans on twitter. Now they can be a part of the movie forever (sounds scary) by seeing it first and sharing on twitter. Please Leave A Comment-

Toke up! @tuskthemovie Teams Up With @budsandrosesla

This is just some crazy news that I had to share. LOL Toke up with “ Mr. Tusk ” and “ White Walrus ” medical-marijuana strains available now at Buds & Roses in Los Angeles! Let’s get blazed! A24 partners with THE WORLD’S BEST EVER and BUDS & ROSES , a Los Angeles based medical-marijuana dispensary, to sell two brand new cannabis strains inspired by Kevin Smith’s TUSK ! A24 will release TUSK in theaters nationwide September 19, 2014 “Kevin Smith’s “Tusk” is an utterly bizarre, weirdly compelling story of manimal love that stakes out its own brazen path somewhere between “The Fly” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Twenty years on from “Clerks” Smith has delivered a left-field surprise that ranks among his very best work.” Scott Foundas, Variety Buds & Roses will sell the two strains - “Mr. Tusk” and “White Walrus” - beginning today through September 26, 2014.

Kevin Smith Returns To Comic-Con With #Tusk & Debuts Poster For Film

A24 Films and Kevin Smith have unveiled their poster for TUSK today. According to the filmmaker, the San Diego Comic-Con will serve as the backdrop for the movie’s trailer premiere. Smith dropped both bits of news via his blog this afternoon. The poster takes the minimalistic approach. “Let me tell you a story…” gives it a fairy tale vibe. But I think this film may be far from a fairy tale. In the film, Michael Parks plays a creep who lures Justin Long’s character (a dude who runs a podcast) into his abode and then slowly turns him into a walrus. Genesis Rodriguez co-stars wth Haley Joel Osment . Please Leave A Comment-
