kevin smith spirit awards red state

Poor Kevin Smith! He just keeps getting the fuzzy end of the lollipop doesn't he??

After his Red State didn't receive recognition from the Spirit Awards this year, he went ballistic on Twitter!

But to be fair, he seems mainly upset that his actors didn't receive any nominations.

The Clerks legend tweeted:

We're not in Leonardo, NJ anymore!

Kevin Smith Gets Help Distributing His Flick Red State

Filed under: Film Flickers

How does that tail feel between your legs there, buddy!

You may not recall, but Kevin Smith pissed off a lot of people at Sundance this past year when he bought the distribution rights for his own movie Red State at the festival after staging a huge auction for it. He paid himself quiet handsomely too - a whole $20 bucks - and then ventured off on a tour with the film across the country. He made a cool million off the venture, but now he's in need of a bigger company with more pull to take his thriller to the next level.

That's why, today,

Kevin Smith Is Bringing Red State To Europe!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

Wow! He's pretty serious about doing his own thing with this one - and we really respect him for it!

After controversially buying the rights to distribute his new film, Red State, himself, Kevin Smith is now planning to push the sale of the director's foray into the horror genre onto foreign buyers!

He reportedly introduced a private screening to the European Film Market Thursday, and announced plans to expand upon what he's doing in the US - taking the movie around the country to select cities with Q&A appearances before its nationwide October 19th release - in countries worldwide!

He explained to potential buyers:

“(If) you guys pick it up, I will work with you. I can come over, we set up five or six key places, boom, sell those houses out, start people talking. Just fly me over. But case in point, I might not be allowed to fly on the plane sometimes, so you might have to boat me over. In the beginning, I was all heart and passion. These are made by someone who says I will kill or die to get a movie made. And after 10 years, I got pretty complacent and just made movies like other people would make. I used to make shit that nobody could make but me. I figure if I’m going out, I want to go out really fuckin’ strong. What you’re going to see is all passion and heart. Everything I put into this I put into the early flicks. I came back with a vengeance and put this together.”

Wow! Like we said earlier, this is a pretty ballsy move on his part!

But it seems as though he's really passionate about the project, so we hope his plan works out for him! And we imagine it will, if he's right about the quality of the movie!

We'd love to see Kevin Smith back to form with this one! It sounds as though it has a lot of potential!

Best of luck!

Kevin Smith's COMPLETE Sundance Rant

Filed under: Film Flickers

By now, you all know all about Kevin Smith's stunt at Sundance this past weekend. You know he bought his own film, Red State, for $20, even though he told people he was going to hold an "auction" for the rights to it.

But now, you can see the whole mess go down yourself! Someone who was in the audience had the foresight to tape Kevin's rather interesting rant.

Check out the video (above) to hear Kevin explain, in his own words, what buying this film for himself actually means.

We won't lie, it's loooooooong. Still, its worth the view to see how Kevin is trying to challenge the industry into a new wave of making and selling movies.

Kevin Smith Protests The Protesters At Sundance

Filed under: Film Flickers

Ha! Only Kevin Smith!

At the premiere of his new indie flick, Red State, director Kevin Smith was greeted by a group of pissed off protesters who didn't like the way Kevin portrayed some fanatical Christians in his movie.

So what did Kevin do? He joined them, of course!

Check out the video (above) and watch as Kevin comes fully prepared to protest the protesters!

Everything remained peaceful, thankfully. Don't really know if either sides point got across, but at least they spoke their minds!

Kevin Smith Buys His Own Movie For $20 At Sundance

Filed under: Film Flickers

He's trying to make a point, people! Pay attention!

Last night, director Kevin Smith confused the lot who came to see his new horror flick, Red State, at Sundance when he announced he already bought the rights to the film himself and wouldn't be accepting any other offers.

For weeks, Kevin has been telling sources that he would be holding a post-screening auction for the rights to Red, but in the end, he ended keeping the goods all for himself. He told the crowd he paid himself $20 for the flick and he's planning on a Oct. 19th release. So, what's with the stunt? Kevin explained to the audience:

"What we need to prove is that anyone can release a movie. Indie film isn't dead, it just grew up. It is just indie film 2.0 now. In indie film 2.0, we don’t let them sell our movie, we sell our movie ourselves.”

Alrighty then. We sure hope you know what you are doing. If this makes money, they'll call you a visionary. If it doesn't, well, let's just say we hope you hang onto that $20!
