Tusk opens nationwide today and in honor of that, our friends at A24 have shared a new clip from the film with us. This latest snippet shows a painfully awkward dinner scene between Michael Parks and Justin Long. Come inside for your first look.
The idea for the film originated from director Kevin Smith’s SModacst. When Smith took to Twitter to ascertain the level of fan interest, the response was overwhelmingly positive. The concept grew from there and found the director putting together a script and getting the project off the ground. Tusk was shot over the course of just three weeks in November 2013.
Tusk tells the story of Wallace, a man that travels to Canada to conduct a podcast interview with a hunter who has an obsession with walruses. But when Wallace arrives, he discovers that his interview subject has other plans for him: Specifically, he intends to turn Wallace into a human walrus. Tusk stars Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers) as Wallace and Michael Parks (Red State) as Howard, the walrus enthusiast.
