The Cast of Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Talk about a surreal 24-hour stretch — I awoke this morning still trying to process the unbelievably epic nature of The Dark Knight, which I had a chance to see last evening. And while I am not ready to put together a full review, both because Warner Bros. probably doesn’t want me to do so and because I have not yet found the words to describe what I saw, I will say this: The Dark Knight is unlike any film you will see this year, and perhaps this decade.

Moving on, it was also very surreal to wake up to see that director Kevin Smith, who we all know and love, had updated his Personal Blog with a brand new image from his upcoming film Zack and Miri Make a Porno, which hits theaters on October 31. The photo shows the supporting cast, including Tracey Lords, Jeff Anderson, Craig Robinson and Jason Mewes looking intently at something off-screen. We can only imagine what sort of depraved shenanigans are happening to the left of this picture.

As well, Kevin also blogged a bit about his experience seeing The Dark Knight last night with Slashfilm’s Peter Sciretta. How cool is that? The even cooler part was that I too, was there, hanging with Pete, Alex from First Showing and Mr. Smith himself. I cannot begin to describe how cool it was to not only see The Dark Knight, but to do so sitting next to one of my all-time favorite filmmakers — that folks, is a surreal experience. We also got a chance to hang out after the flick, chatting about the awesome experience had by all. In his blog entry, Kevin had this to say about the film:

Without giving anything away, this is an epic film (and trust me: based on the sheer size and scope of the visuals and storytelling, that’s not an overstatement). It’s the “Godfather II” of comic book films and three times more earnest than “Batman Begins” (and fuck, was that an earnest film). Easily the most adult comic book film ever made. Heath Ledger didn’t so much give a performance as he disappeared completely into the role; I know I’m not the first to suggest this, but he’ll likely get at least an Oscar nod (if not the win) for Best Supporting Actor. Fucking flick’s nearly three hours long and only leaves you wanting more (in a great way). I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed by it. Nolan and crew have created something close to a masterpiece.

I could not have, nor will I probably be able to say it better than that. As I have found time and time again in this business, there are some people who are genuinely cool people to be around, and Kevin Smith is certainly one of them. I cannot begin to describe the relaxed, fanboyish conversation that took place outside of the screening last evening — it was just a small group of geeks in awe. It was also very funny that even on a night when I got a chance to meet one of my idols, Christopher Nolan and his film still stole the show — now that is saying something.

It goes without saying that you should be pumped for The Dark Knight. As well, you should also be pumped for Zack and Miri Make a Porno — because that film looks like it is going to be pretty damn good in its own right.
