For the fourth time in his career, writer-director Kevin Smith had gotten into a disagreement with the Motion Picture Association of America, due to the rating of his latest film, Yoga Hosers. However, before the scheduled appeals screening even occurred, the MPAA took another look at the film and decided it was only fair to give Smith his desired PG-13 rating. Now that all of that MPAA nonsense is behind the director, he’s ready to take Yoga Hosers on tour this summer.
Find out below when and where you can see Smith present Yoga Hosers live.

Kevin Smith has, once again, found himself in a dispute with the MPAA. The Motion Picture Association of America has branded Smith’s latest film, Yoga Hosers, with an R-rating. This isn’t the director’s first time appealing a rating, but in this instance, the reasoning behind the R-rating — a drawn pair of testicles — is laughable, even by the MPAA’s standards.
Below, read what Smith had to say about the Yoga Hosers rating.

This past weekend brought the premiere of Kevin Smith‘s latest effort as writer and director, the absolutely insane Yoga Hosers, at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. If you want to know just how truly nutty this movie is, check out Peter Sciretta’s full review on the movie right here, or watch the clip that was released before the premiere.
Yours truly was curious enough to check out the movie that is like a PG-13 Disney Channel nightmare as only Kevin Smith can deliver, and before and after the film, Smith had a couple interesting things to say about how he’s approaching filmmaking now as well as what we can expect from Moose Jaws.

Yoga Hosers feels like a cross between an absurd live-action cartoon created by a stoner and a ’90s-style teenage comedy. It’s so strange, and unlike anything Kevin Smith has directed before. I’m honestly not sure if Yoga Hosers was terrible or if I am just not the target demographic for this story.

This weekend brings the premiere of Kevin Smith‘s latest indie effort, the horror comedy Yoga Hosers, at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. There isn’t a trailer for the film just yet, but the writer/director who launched his career at the indie film fest decided to tease what’s waiting for all of us catching flicks in the mountains with the first Yoga Hosers clip.
Harley Quinn Smith (the filmmaker’s daughter) and Lily-Rose Depp (daughter of Johnny Depp, who also stars in the film) take the leads in the movie, and here we get to see that they’re not too far removed from a couple of characters that Smith’s fans should be very familiar with. Read More »

Below, check out the images and read more about Smith’s upcoming work.

We’ve already heard from Kevin Smith about his impressive list of upcoming projects. He’s also told us about what making Tusk meant to him. Now, in part two of our long interview with the filmmaker, we dig a little deeper. Smith goes into great detail about some of the more talked-about decisions he made in Tusk, which is now on Blu-ray.
First Smith talks about the decision to reveal the walrus suit so early in the film. That leads into a discussion of effects in general, his preferred tone, other problems people have with the film and then his biggest regret in the marketing of the film. (A mistake he says he’ll never make again). He then talks about the inventive, aggressive schedule on Yoga Hosers, which is almost done filming. Read the rest of our Kevin Smith Tusk interview below.
