film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Kevin Smith's 'Tusk' To Get UK Premiere At Leeds Film Festival

Tusk is the 2014 horror/comedy from renowned writer/director Kevin Smith.

The plot is spun-off from a story told on one of Smith’s podcasts; loosely based on a fake posting on Gumtree written by UK poet/prankster Chris Parkinson.

Podcaster Wallace (Justin Long) travels to Canada to interview Howard Howe (Michael Parks)about his adventures at sea. However, things take a turn for the sinister when Wallace goes missing and his friend Teddy (Hayley-Joel Osment) and girlfriend Allison (Genesis Rodriguez) must go and find him. The film also features a cameo from Johnny Depp.

The UK premiere will take place at the Leeds Film Festival  on Saturday, 8th November as part of the ‘Fanomenon Day of the Dead’ horror selection.

20:30 @ Leeds Town Hall – Victoria Hall – £8.00 / £6.00 / Day of the Dead Pass.

It is not yet confirmed if there will be anyone from the film attending the screening how-ever Smith has been doing Q&A sessions via Skype for international screenings thus far.

According to the UK release date will be Friday, December 5th.

It is not clear yet how many screens the film will be showing on but expect major cities only and limited screenings (the filmed opened on only 3 screens in Canada for example).
