Back in April, it was revealed that Kevin Smith’s new movie Yoga Hosers was picked up by Invincible Pictures, with the filmmaker taking his movie on tour before its theatrical release on July 29. Shortly thereafter, the first trailer and poster were released, with the tour kicking off on June 1 in New Orleans. The tour continues today with a stop at the Houston Improv in Houston, Texas, but for those who can’t make it to this screening, the second trailer has debuted with plenty of new footage, including a new look at Johnny Depp’s Guy Lapointe.
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 (Johnny Depp) to fight for their lives with all seven Chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time. Yoga Hosers features Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp reprising their roles from Kevin Smith’s 2014 film Tusk. This trailer, which debuted on YouTube, gives us a better look at the sausage monsters dubbed Bratzis, who will be played by Kevin Smith himself.
Justin Long, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Ralph Garman, Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Haley Joel Osment, Vanessa Paradis, Tyler Posey, Genesis Rodriguez, Jennifer Schwalbach and Jason Mewes round out the supporting cast for Yoga Hosers. Just before the release date was announced, Kevin Smith scored another big victory with the MPAA, who had originally given Yoga Hosers an R rating, but overturned their own ruling and gave the filmmaker a PG-13 rating, without an official appeal. The director had previously won appeals for Clerks and Zack and Miri Make a Porno, which were both originally given an NC-17 rating, but given an R rating upon appeal.
After the Yoga Hosers tour stop tonight at the Houston Improv in Houston, Texas, the tour continues June 12 at Studio 35 Cinema & Drafthouse in Columbus, Ohio. The final three dates of the tour are July 8 at The Carolina Theatre in Durham, North Carolina, July 12 at The Improv in San Jose, California and July 17 at the Cobbs Comedy Club in San Francisco, California. Yoga Hosers will hit theaters on July 29, going up against Universal’s Jason Bourne, STX Entertainment’s Bad Moms and Lionsgate’s Nerve.
Last year, Kevin Smith teased that his final True North movie, Moose Jaws, could feature the death of his beloved on-screen character Silent Bob. The actor/director is expected to make sequels Clerks III and Mallrats 2 in the near future as well, and since both those movies featured both Jay and Silent Bob, we’ll have to see if they’ll both be back for those sequels. While we wait for more on Moose Jaws and the rest of Kevin Smith’s future projects, take a look at the second trailer for Yoga Hosers below.
