This film started out simply as a joke on Kevin Smith’s podcast. Smith had read a story about an ad on craigslist involving a man looking for a roommate willing to dress up as a walrus, and the ideas started flowing. After a super positive response from twitter in regards to making the film (#WalrusYes), Smith began writing the screenplay. The time has finally come for a first glimpse at the twisted story of a man (Michael Parks) turning another man (Justin Long) into a walrus.
Tusk stars Michael Parks, Justin Long, Genesis Rodriguez, and Haley Joel Osment. Written and directed by Kevin Smith. In theaters September 19.
THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES
We join Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and the gang again in the final film in the Hobbit trilogy. This time around, the Company of Thorin has reached Smaug’s lair, but will Bilbo and the dwarves be able to reclaim Erebor and the treasure? And if so, will they be able to hold onto it? From the looks of this trailer, Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro will not disappoint as far as visual effects go; the film looks stunning.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Cate Blanchett, Richard Armitage, Martin Freeman, Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, and Hugo Weaving. Written by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson, and Guillermo Del Toro. Directed by Peter Jackson. In theaters December 17.
HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2
The guys from the first film (minus John Cusack) are back! This time we see them all using information they know from the future to gain fame and fortune. Eventually, Lou (Rob Corddry), now known as “The Father of the Internet,” gets shot by an unknown. In order to save him, his buddies must break out the old hot tub time machine, again. With a few trips to the future and the past and Chevy Chase’s return, this film looks to be just as much fun as the first.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 stars Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Adam Scott, and Chevy Chase. Written by Josh Heald and directed by Steve Pink. In theaters December 25.
