Kevin Smith's "Red State" Teaser Trailer

Over a month after "hearing" the teaser trailer to Kevin Smith's image-altering new film Red State on his "Red State of the Union" podcast, today he released the pictures that go along with Michael Park's singing:

After hearing repeatedly about how "this doesn't look or feel like a Kevin Smith film", I'd have to say that statement is true. It looks like a European film, to be honest (they mentioned Let the Right One In as a source of inspiration for some of the shots-- it's totally evident).

What can I say, really. It's certainly a departure from his previous films-- it's almost hard to believe from watching this, that it's the same guy that directed Clerks and Dogma. The performances look convincing, the photography is beautiful, and the mood set in the trailer is awesome and compelling.

Can't wait to see it.
