This Week in Trailers: Disney, Denzel, and ‘Django’


You gotta give Kevin Smith this: he’s a man of his word. When he made the perhaps ill-advised decision to self-distribute his last film, Red State, he also announced a plan to use his distribution network to put out the work of up-and-coming indie filmmakers. Now we have (via Slashfilm) the trailer for the first release from Smodcast Pictures, Bindlestiffs, a low-budget guy-talk comedy with a more-than-passing resemblance to Smith’s breakthrough picture Clerks. The movie doesn’t exactly look like a model for good taste and/or restraint, and it certainly seems more than a little rough around the edges. But we’re more than willing to tip our hat to Smith for coming through on his pledge to pay it forward.
