“Hi I’m Kevin Smith, The Fat Guy Who Got Thrown Of A Plane!”
Nice intro Kevin as he introduces the new second teaser trailer for his political Horror comedy RED STATE, the movie is in its second day of its roadshow around North America before it’s main theatrical release later in the year.
I do love it when someone has a pot at American rightwing religious fundamentalism and I’ll never forget the time when I met Steven when I was living in Manchester he was a American student from Houston Texas who tried his best to brainwash me with rightwing Christian fundamentalism telling my problems would be solved ,pin pointing the sole reason for my troubles I was a catholic. I can tell you 2 months into the university year he was expelled, I have nothing against religion I dont practice myself and beleive if people want to follow religion let them find it on you own feet not by someone else and never preach what Steven did.
Now back to the film Apple have released this new trailer with a movie which stars Michael Parks, Michael Angarano, Kyle Gallner, John Goodman, Melissa Leo (where she can curse as much as she wants, not the Oscars!), Kevin Pollak, Anna Gunn, Stephen Root. The movie tells the story of 3 high school boys via the internet arrange to meet a woman to have sex and on the way there paths cross a fundamentalist preacher, Abin Cooper and from here all hell breaks loose through a number of events.
Looks good despite the mixed reactions from the critics though the weekend saw record box office sales at the sneek peek screenings so the film fans must be enjoying the whole affair! No word on the exact date for Red State’s release in UK & Ireland but any American fans who miss the roadshow can watch the movie nationwide from October 19th.
