From the good folks that are kind enough to pay for Kevin Smith’s next file, Zack And Miri Make A Porno, we’ve got nine screen caps from the upcoming flick, which has been called the “funniest movie of “2008” already. I’m sold, I’ll be there opening weekend.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty psyched about this flick, and can’t wait to laugh my ass off on Halloween.
While Kevin Smith may have go his R rating, opposed to the MPAA’s initial NC-17 rating, and even got his new red band trailer past them earlier this week, they apparently 86’d his new poster for Zack And Miri Make A Porno.

I don’t think it’s that bad, and I don’t think children would even get the joke. It’s been banned in the US, but Canada says “We’ll let people see it, eh?!”
The Associated Press reports that Smith won the appeal after presenting his case to the MPAA’s Appeals Board. I think Smith hit the nail on the head in this quote:
They felt it was rather sexually graphic. My point is, it was comically graphic. All the sex in the movie with the exception of one scene is very cartoonish, very campy. It wasn’t designed to titillate.
Whether the MPAA takes into consideration the intentions of certain objectionable scenes is unclear. In fact, most of what the MPAA does is unclear to the general public. However, Smith’s point is that the scene wasn’t meant to be pornographic (despite the title), but rather was designed to be laughed at.
This is a victory for Kevin Smith since everyone knows making an NC-17 film is “commercial suicide,” as he put it.
Check out Zack and Miri Make A Porno starring Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks in theaters October 31st.
UPDATE: The trailer had to be pulled. See the explanation here.
Straight from Kevin Smith comes the extremely dirty teaser for Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Kevin Smith emphasizes that this is not a trailer, as it contains no footage from the movie. Again, I have to say this is a very dirty teaser and extremely not safe for work. You’ve been warned.
