The MPAA just gave Kevin Smith a sure #1 opening!
Kevin Smith, the creator of "Clerks", "Dogma" and "Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back" and the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America), those purveyors of film purity, have been waging war over the film "Zack and Miri make a porno". After settling in the R rating, now the MPAA have censored the poster of the film, because to them it's too controversial. Well that's just fine for Kevin. He riposted with a hand drawn poster! Funny as hell!
The thing is, the more controversy it generates, the more people will want to see it. I think Kevin Smith just got himself a number one movie. Remember, no such thing as bad publicity!
Here are the posters. The one on the top is the original, the one on the bottom is the new Kevin Smith version.
