First official trailer for Kevin Smith’s Tusk


Regardless of our opinions on Kevin Smith here at Flixist, we always seem to find ourselves talking about him. It’s because he’s managed to turn his few successes into a huge marketing juggernaut with the “Askewniverse,” podcasts, comic book stores, and TV shows based on those comic book stores. But I don’t find the same fervor for his projects that I once had as he’s been on a string of bad decisions. 

The latest one is Tusk, a film starring Justin Long as a podcaster who interviews people with weird stories. After going to a remote location in Canada, he’s taken hostage by a maniac who wants to slowly turn him into a walrus. The premise sounds pretty neat, but I’m waiting for the other foot to drop. Where’s the badness hiding? Tusk releases in theaters September 19th.
