With Tusk hitting theaters September 19th, we are beginning to see a steady stream of promotional material for the film flooding in. The latest round of publicity comes from the Tusk official website. The site is providing fans the opportunity to Tuskify themselves by uploading a photo and ‘going full walrus’. After the jump are two examples of Kevin Smith film posters going ‘full walrus’ courtesy of the film’s publicity team. Be sure to hit up the site to Tuskify yourself.
The idea for the film originated from director Kevin Smith’s SModacst. When Smith took to Twitter to ascertain the level of fan interest, the response was overwhelmingly positive. The concept grew from there and found the director putting together a script and getting the project off the ground. Tusk was shot over the course of just three weeks in November 2013.
Tusk tells the story of Wallace, a man that travels to Canada to conduct a podcast interview with a hunter who has an obsession with walruses. But when Wallace arrives, he discovers that his interview subject has other plans for him: Specifically, he intends to turn Wallace into a human walrus. Tusk stars Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers) as Wallace and Michael Parks (Red State) as Howard, the walrus enthusiast.
One of our writers is at TIFF and will be submitting his review of the film shortly, so keep an eye on the site for his critique of the picture!
