Yoga Hosers, the new humor/horror film directed by Kevin Smith of Clerks and Chasing Amy fame, starring his daughter Harley Quinn Smith as well as Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp, is coming soon, but not as soon as originally planned; its official release date has been pushed back from July 29 to September 2.
What’s the movie — which also features appearances by Kevin and Johnny, as well as Orange Is the New Black star Natasha Lyonne, Haley Joel Osment, Justin Long, Stan Lee, Jason Mewes, as well as Kevin’s wife (and Harley’s mom) Jen Schwalbach — about? Here’s the official description from Count Basie’s site: “15 year old-yoga-nuts Colleen Collette and Colleen McKenzie love their smart phones and hate their after school job at Manitoban convenience store Eh-2-Zed. But 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 the legendary man-hunter from Montreal named Guy Lapointe to fight for their lives with all seven Chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time.”
This isn’t the only change for the film; its original R rating was updated to PG-13 in April, much to the delight of Kevin, who was set to appeal the initial rating.
Holy shit! The #MPAA just canceled my @yogahosers appeals screening that was set for tomorrow. They said they re-watched the movie and now agree that it is, indeed, a PG-13! I don't have to cut anything out to secure the PG-13 rating either! Next up, we'll tour the kids movie in June and July (tour details coming soon) and release #YogaHosers in theaters right after #ComicCon! Many thanks to the #MPAA for the 180 degree turn! #KevinSmith #YogaHosers #harleyquinnsmith #lilyrosedepp
New Jersey residents will get to see it a month before its theatrical release at Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank on August 2, followed by an hour-long Q&A with Kevin, where you’ll get the opportunity to ask him all your film nerd queries.
Even better? The Jersey premiere and question and answer session will be filmed for the sixth season of AMC reality show Comic Book Men, which follows the staff of Kevin’s comic book shop Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, also in Red Bank.
New @jayandsilentbobstash window art provided by #supergroovycartoonmovie director @starktoons! Season 6 of #ComicBookMen starts shooting soon so we're gussying up the jizz-oint a l'il. Featured in the art are @tellemants & @mingchen37 & @michaelzapcic & @bqquinn & @tuskthemovie & @yogahosers & @cwtheflash & @jayandsilentbob as themselves, Hodor/Bran, R2/Threepio, Groot/Rocket and Starfire/Raven! Some bighearted #TESD #ants posted a makeshift memorial to #MarcCostello, the recently passed beloved #jayandsilentbobssecretstash counter man. It's such a good idea, we're gonna steal it and include a Marc memorial in the panel to the immediate left of the front door. #KevinSmith #redbank #newjersey
