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!

Kevin Smith Refuses To Do Press For Red State

kevin smith wont talk to press about new movie

Looks like the sting is still there from his last movie.

After critics bashed Kevin Smith's action-comedy Cop Out, the director seems to have taken a serious aversion to the press, and he's refusing to do interviews to talk about his upcoming horror movie Red State.

Here's what he had to say about his decision on his Twitter page:

"I'm not press-junketing at all, anywhere. In fact, I'm not doing any press outside of maybe a business piece or 2 to help sell the flick if needed, & radio (LOTS of radio)."

In lieu of interviews, Smith will provide the world will all the deets on his upcoming movie via podcast.

More from Kevin about the podcast:

"It's INSANELY detailed, and by the time we're done, I'll have pre-answered all questions about RedState — thus negating the need to speak with me about it.

From nearly 20 yrs experience, I know this much: folks are gonna write WHATEVER they want, whether I sit down with them or not. So I'll just furnish all the information I'd normally serve up one at a time to a small, jaded audience that doesn't really give a s–t unless there's someone famous in the room, to a much larger, APPRECIATIVE audience that would actually enjoy & benefit from hearing the same information."

Inneresting concept, Kevin. Guess we'll see how it plays out.
