On Tuesday, writer director Kevin Smith did a live chat with MTV News in which he discussed a variety of topics including possibly bringing back a few of his old friends for his next film, Hit Somebody. He also came armed with an exclusive clip from his upcoming film Red State. This 55 second clip features multiple award-winning and Best Supporting Actress front runner Melissa Leo as well as three of the actors who Smith plans to bring back for Hit Somebody: Michael Angarano, Kyle Gallner and Nicholas Braun.

Having seen the film at Sundance (read my review here) we can put this clip in context by saying it’s from early in the film, doesn’t really spoil much, but will leave you mighty curious as to watch happens next. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

Kevin Smith Intends to Re-Cut ‘Red State’

Even a cursory glance at the rather mixed response to Red State following its Sundance debut should indicate that it has problems in need of fixing, chief among them being a 20-minute long sermon performed by Michael Parks that many have opined runs way too long. Question is, without any pressure from a studio to cut the film down, does director Kevin Smith have any desire to do so?

Well, Kevin Smith has now responded to the criticisms, and his answer to the aforementioned question was an unhesitant, “Kill your babies.” Er, I mean, “Yes.” Read what he had to say after the break. Read More »

Dispatches From The ‘Red State’ World Premiere

Kevin Smith Holds Up a Sign

If you’ve been following this site during Sundance 2011, you’ve probably noticed a lot of stories about Kevin Smith’s Red State (Follow all our coverage here). This is partially because we’re collectively interested in the trajectory of Smith’s career, but it’s also because Smith managed to transform a typical Sundance movie screening into a media spectacle. Before the movie even screened and Smith declared war on studio distributors, members of the Westboro Baptist Church had already gathered outside the Eccles Theater to protest the film (Side note: While Red State is clearly inspired by the actions of this deplorable organization, the film makes a clear distinction between the Five Points church in the film and Phelps’ church, which actually exists in the film’s universe).

But any impact that the Westboro Baptist Church members might have had was immediately dwarfed by the dozens of people who showed up in counter-protest. They held up signs, some clever (“PRAISE THE GODS! ONLY ONE HATES ME!”), but most of them just totally random (“Have You Seen Waldo?” “EVERYBODY POOPS,” and “I EAT SAND” rounded out some of the offerings). Smith and his entourage had their own signs (see Smith holding one above) that they wielded in their own counter-protest. I would have liked to take more time to document the event, maybe interview some protestors and counter-protestors, but I was stuck in the press tent waiting for the doors to open.

Still, I was able to grab a couple photos/video of the whole thing. Check out some of the signage after the break.
