In “Tusk,” Justin Long plays a podcaster named Wally who travels around the country to interview colorful characters for a radio show called The Not-See Party. He describes these encounters to his best friend and co-host (Haley Joel Osment), who then has to decide whether or not the stories are real or wholly made up. After traveling to Canada to meet a minor Internet celebrity who gained fame for accidentally chopping off his own leg with a samurai sword (a nod to Smith’s pal and fellow indie trailblazer Quentin Tarantino), who has unknowingly taken his own life in the interim, Wally finds himself in desperate need of a story and finds one when he gazes upon a strange personal ad placed by an old sailor (Michael Parks) looking for someone to spend time in his creaky old mansion. Wally goes to visit the old timer and winds up with a whole lot more than he bargained for. We’re not trying to be cagey; the less you know about the plot specifics, the better the WTF-worthy payoff is.[...]

The movie, too, takes on a wildly different tone when, around the third act, a wholly unrecognizable Johnny Depp is introduced as a gonzo French-Canadian detective named Guy LaPointe, who teams up with Wally’s co-host and girlfriend (Genesis Rodriguez) to track him down. With Depp’s entrance, what had been a relatively straightforward horror film is turned on its head. It’s undoubtedly the best, most off-the-wall performance Depp has given in ages, the kind of actorly feat that is so out there that it borders on the hypnotic. Depp, with little more than some well-placed prosthetics and a goofy French-Canadian accent, makes “Tusk” infinitely weirder.

Throughout “Tusk,” there are characters telling stories. They tell stories to each other, to themselves, to countless listeners over the Internet, and it’s this idea that is at the heart of the film. [...] Depp’s character is introduced the same way, with a longwinded monologue that effectively changes the shape of the entire movie.

The movie is funny and scary and odd, and Smith makes a genuine effort to provide scares, going further than you’d ever expect him to in an effort to establish mood and tone. [...] “Tusk” is being marketed as a “truly transformative tale,” and by the end of the movie’s briskly paced 102 minutes, you’ll feel that it’s Smith who has been reinvented most of all. He’s using his skill set in a different genre, with a different agenda altogether, combining autobiographical elements, spooky late-night B-movie influences and a deeper thematic exploration of the nature of storytelling, to create something wholly unique and twisted. “Tusk” will be a lot of things to a lot of people (and we expect the reaction to the film to run the gamut from rapturous adoration to repulsed indifference), but at it’s best, “Tusk” is outlandishly unforgettable.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Johnny Depp and Kevin Smith are teaming up for what is being dubbed a “comic book movie,” and they’re bringing their daughters with them.

This week, Smith will start principal photography on Yoga Hosers, an action-adventure movie that will star Depp, his daughter Lily-Rose Depp, and Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith.

The movie is Smith’s follow-up to Tusk, which premieres at the Toronto Film Festival in September, and is the second installment in Smith’s True North trilogy of movies that are steeped in Canadian myths and culture. In fact, the entire cast of Tusk is returning for Hosers, including Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman and Harley Morenstein. New to the cast are Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey and Jason Mewes.

Hosers, written by Smith, centers on 15-year-old yoga nuts Colleen Collette (Lily-Rose Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Harley Quinn Smith), who have an after-school job at a Manitoba convenience store called Eh-2-Zed. When an ancient evil rises from beneath Canada’s crust and threatens their big invitation to a Grade 12 party, the Colleens join forces with a legendary man-hunter from Montreal named Guy Lapointe (Depp) to fight for their lives with, according to the producers, “all seven Chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time.”

Smith, a comic book geek who has written titles for Marvel and DC and who once wrote a Superman movie script, said he considers this his entree into the comic book movie genre. “People always ask me ‘Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?’ ” Smith said. “This is it — but instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two 15-year-old girls.”

Said StarStream CEO Kim Leadford: “The timing couldn’t be more perfect as so many production companies are struggling to find content to fill a serious void in the market of female superheroes and antiheroes. And it’s pretty exciting to have their dads making the film with them.”

‘Transcendence’ has been released on Blu-ray about a month ago, so today I have added 582 Blu-ray screencaptures of Johnny as Dr. Will Caster to our gallery. I thought it was a great, enjoyable, thought-provoking movie that deserved much more credit than the critics gave it. And what did you think of the movie? Let us know in the comments!

March 9, 2014

Everything in modern filmmaking is making the transistion from analog to digital: sound, editing, visual effects, cinematography. And soon, maybe even our movie stars.

That’s how it looks in the new poster for “Transcendence,” the upcoming science fiction thriller with its roots in the real theories of how man and machine may someday come together. Depp plays Dr. Will Caster, a brilliant scientist working towards the singularity — or what he calls “transcendence” — where computers become so advanced they can perfectly replicate or even exceed the capacity of a human brain.

When an anti-technology activist shoots Dr. Caster to derail his research, his wife (Rebecca Hall) insists on making him the first subject of the experiment. But her efforts to keep his intelligence alive after his body dies creates a new and unpredictably dangerous form of life.

“Transcendence” marks the directorial debut of Wally Pfister, who is the Oscar-winning cinematographer of Christopher Nolan’s films “Inception,” “The Prestige” and “The Dark Knight” trilogy. And while his film takes place on the edge of the technological frontier, Pfister still prefers to do some things the old-fashioned way. Pfister has always insisted on shooting with film and not digital cameras.

“Transcendence” open[s on] April 18.

Finally, the first trailer for Johnny’s upcoming movie project Transcendence was revealed on YouTube. Feel free to check it out on our website below on this post. To my mind the trailer looks pretty interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing this movie.

December 14, 2013

The first official images have arrived online for Transcendence, the directorial debut from Wally Pfister, giving us a first look at Johnny Depp and some of the rest of his assembled co-stars.

The new film casts Johnny as an expert in Artificial Intelligence, whose life’s work is to create a sentient machine capable of human emotion.

An intriguing line of work then, but a controversial one, and it isn’t long before Johnny’s character is targeted by anti-technology extremists.

However, their interference only serves to provide the final piece in the jigsaw, as Depp himself undergoes the “transcendence” that finally brings his work to fruition…

The new images give us a look at Johnny’s character both pre and post transcendence, while also giving us some idea of the visual aesthetic Pfister has gone for. Shiny sci-fi goodness, ahoy!

Co-starring Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy and Paul Bettany, Transcendence will open in the UK on 25 April 2014.

I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
