Tusk
It's been a frightfully long time since Kevin Smith made a movie that made us feel like watching it again (or, in the case of dreck like Cop Out, even finishing the damn thing once), and on paper, it doesn't look like Tusk -- the story of a doofus podcaster who wanders into the Canadian wilderness and gets himself mixed up with a mad scientist who wants to turn him into a walrus -- stands a prayer of breaking that dismal streak.

Watch: First Trailer for Kevin Smith's Weird Walrus Movie 'Tusk' Walrus Yes! After hosting a panel at Comic-Con 2014 for Tusk, filmmaker Kevin Smith and A24 Films have debuted the trailer online for your viewing pleasure. Or distaste, perhaps. The movie is about a man, played by Michael Parks, who wants to make another human, played by Justin Long, into a walrus. Kind of like Human Centipede but with a weird, wacky, funny Kevin Smith twist. In addition to those two, the cast includes Genesis Rodriguez as his girlfriend, and Haley Joel Osment (yea, him!) as another friend, who go on the hunt for him when he goes missing.

Kevin Smith Mentions Minor Details About Upcoming Horror Trilogy Retired from making movies? No way! At his annual Comic-Con panel in San Diego this year, Kevin Smith revealed the first official trailer for his wacky new horror film Tusk, about a guy who wants to make another guy into a walrus (see it here). During the panel's Q&A with the audience, a very young girl came up to the microphone and asked him if he would ever make movies that weren't R-rated. His only PG-13 film so far is Jersey Girl, but he went on to say he's actually working on an entire new trilogy of horror films called the "True North Trilogy", referencing their Canadian setting.

Kevin Smith says the Weinsteins have passed on Clerks 3, so he's doing a spin-off of his forthcoming horror movie Tusk. "[The Weinsteins] passed [on Clerks 3]," Smith told Screen Daily (via Variety). "I went in with a $6 million budget and they were like, 'Oh no, Kevin. This is too high.' Bob offered us distribution, but they weren't going to finance it."
