Kevin Smith's charity-driven Red State poster collection

Dec. 20, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Here in the internet movie news business, exclusives are a must-have for any site, and Kevin Smith recently used this fact in tandem with the release of a bunch of new Red State character posters, which he gave to sites who outbid each other for them on Twitter.

But before you launch into anti-Smith rage here, know that the proceeds did go to charity, and each raised about $2,000 for organizations like HaveFaithHaiti, The Kenny Gordon Foundation and The Wayne Foundation, with Smith matching the bids with his own money.

So, to give proper credit to the winners we have The Father, from Giant Fire Breathing Robot, The Sons, from Pussy Eating Club (yup) and Caleb, from Xcellent Creations. The Virgin is Kevin's own "gift" to fans after they pledged $1,000 to charity some time ago.

Check them all out below, and if you have the funds, maybe you can buy the next one for your Tumblr blog.

I'm gonna agree with Terminal on this one. The actors clearly just walked onto some set, were told to stand there, have their picture taken, and then they printed the name of the film on it and called it a poster. Unless you consider every profile picture on IMDB a poster, these are not posters.

The neutral is because Smith gave all the profits from this to charity, which is a cool move. Hopefully he has some good posters later.

Remember when movie posters were considered art and not Photoshop projects and Facebook photos?

Sheeeeeep

Kevin Smith could draw his nuts on a napkin and his fans would insist it's a pure work of art. It's ridiculous. These posters are awful. It's profiles of the actors! That's all it is! Geez people.

This will probably turn out like any other boring horror movies.

I've listened to a couple of the clips he's played on his Red State podcast. This actually does sound legitmately creepy. I hope it does well.

Can't wait to see this

My favorite poster is the original one with the person covered in a white shroud, but The Father one is pretty cool.

First trailer bid is supposed to start at $10,000

And while I am definitely a Kevin Smith fan, Red State looks (or more specifically sounds) awesome, and is up there with Green Lantern & Thor for the flicks I am dying to see next year.
