Kevin Smith unleashed another poster for his upcoming film Red State tonight, thanks to the generous actions of a fan who contributed cash to a truly worthy cause.
As per a message from Smith on the Giant Fire Breathing Robot website:
“If you’re a movie website or film journalist and you want to feature this poster or use it in a story, don’t be a detail-thin dick.
Be sure to tell people WHY the poster was released: because Giant Fire Breathing Robot website bid $2000 to Mitch Albom’s HaveFaithHaiti.org in less than 30 minutes. If you also include the link for Mitch’s Haitian charity in your story/article, you’re not only being a thorough journalist, you’re also helping to save actual lives – lives whose progress you’ll be able to trace via HaveFaithHaiti.org.
It only takes a few seconds longer to provide all available facts in any story. Including THIS fact can help save a child’s life.”
The flick stars John Goodman, Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo, Dermot Mulroney, Michael Angarano, Steven Root, and Michael Parks.
“In the film a group of kids encounter a crazed preacher (based on Fred Phelps, founder of the Westboro Baptist Church) who gives a whole new meaning to the term ‘extreme fundamentalism.'”
Those who follow the news closely may be aware of Phelps’ “church”. He and his followers believe that homosexuality is the root cause of almost every single problem in American history. Ironic that it’s really only in America that such a person would be able to freely express his admittedly idiotic and close-minded viewpoint and gain national attention because of it.
