Let’s not get things twisted, this is some weird asana stuff. We’ve been talking about it, wondering what the heck it’s about and now it’s finally here, the trailer for Kevin Smith’s yoga superhero comedy horror Yoga Hosers has arrived.
And it’s…pretty much as wacky as we expected considering the oddball premise: Take two convenience store clerks, both teenage girls, both named Colleen, and both big into yoga. They get invited to a super cool high school party when all hell breaks loose in the bratwursts—seriously, bratwurst Nazis, “Bratzis,” launch an attack. To save the world, the girls call on their yoga superhero powers and the help of a French-Canadian detective played by Johnny Depp. A blockbuster it is not.
The film stars newcomers, Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith and Depp’s Lily-Rose Depp, but there’s no lack of familiar faces, with appearances from Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman, and Harley Morenstein, plus Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey and Jason Mewes, and cameos from Stan Lee and Kevin Smith.
Yoga Hosers is the second in Smith’s “True North trilogy” a series of Canadian-infused flicks (Tusk, which also featured Johnny Depp andJustin Long as the first).
As for the yoga, it appears Long plays the guru character who advises the girls to “Destroy everything that threatens everything or anyone that you love. That’s the yoga way.”
As one YouTube commenter put it, “It’s a Kevin Smith movie, it’s not supposed to be good.” And we have to believe Smith is starting to own that (the third film in the trilogy is Moose Jaws, which is “Jaws with a moose.”)
Whatever. We’re in for the absurdity, which is sure to be handed to us slathered in mustard on a day-old bun with a maple syrup slurpee…and a swastika? (Viewers note: If you’re into the ganja yoga trend, this one may be more enjoyable for you.)
The film will have its U.S. release July 29th.
