Kevin Smith had suffered a major heart attack earlier this week, but fans attacked actor Chris Pratt for offering prayers for his recovery.
On Monday this week (February 26th), Pratt had taken to Twitter to offer his thoughts after learning that Smith had suffered a “widow-maker” heart attack, speaking about how inspiring he had found the Clerks film-maker’s work.
“Kevin we don’t know each other too good but I have loved you since Clerks and I’m praying my ass off for you cause I believe in the healing power of prayer. Can you please pray with me people!?” Pratt had tweeted.

Phin Cooper is a dedicated BMX dirt jumper whose only dream is to become a world-class professional stunt performer. While he has the skills, the energy and the devotion to the sport to get him where he wants to be, his attitude is still somewhat lacking. He wants to compete in the Heroes Of Dirt BMXing competition coming up in Boston, but no sooner has he begun preparing than he finds himself arrested for persistent trespassing, damaging city property and running (or riding) from the cops. The court orders 300 hours of community service; every afternoon for 45 days he must perform cleaning duties at a local youth center. However, it's there he meets a troubled kid named Blue, who Phin takes under his wing and introduces to the world of BMX riding. With a clearer vision of his future, Phin is ready to take his new friend to the top with him.

Back in the 1990s Batman director Tim Burton signed on to direct a new Superman movie penned by Mallrats writer and comic book enthusiast Kevin Smith and starring Nicolas Cage, but sadly the film never made it to the big screen.

Richard Linklater is well known in the film industry as one of the stand out names in indie movie making. Responsible for a wide variety of films including the decade spanning romance 'Before Sunset' (and its sequels), music fuelled comedy 'School Of Rock', social misfit drama 'Slacker', and innovative animated thriller 'A Scanner Darkly', Linklater has inspired a generation of filmmakers and scooped two Oscar nominations and numerous film festival awards along the way. After 21 years, this Texas born innovator is still thoroughly impressing, his latest project 'Boyhood' having caused a stir for its unique quality of having been filmed over thirteen years. Just what will he do next?

Despite an interesting premise and plenty of gross-out moments, 'Tusk' never quite fulfils its own potential.
The idea for Kevin Smith's new horror movie Tusk starring Justin Long was born from a podcast and most critics agree that it should have remained in its infancy. Long plays a podcast who is targeted by a sadistic killer while attempting to land an interview with a misanthropic adventurer - an original idea for sure, but Tusk never fulfils its potential.
"There's too much forced winking in it; everything is a goof, a lark, a Smith-style in-joke for the in-crowd," said Stephanie Zacharek of Village Voice.

Johnny Depp and Kevin Smith are teaming up with their daughters for the second movie in Smith's "True North Trilogy". But what do we know about it so far?
After a run of poorly received films that have dented Johnny Depp’s reputation as a box-office magnet, the Hollywood superstar must be keen to move onto pastures anew. For his newest venture, Depp has teamed up with cult filmmaker Kevin Smith in a high-concept action movie based around the exploits of a pair of teen yoga fanatics and their fight against evil spirits. Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose and Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn will take the lead roles whilst Depp will co-star in the curiously entitled project, Yoga Hosers.
In recent years, Depp's box-office status has tailed off after some poor performances.
Set in rural Canada, Smith has written the film and will direct it when it begins production. The story will follow the two girls as they battle a mysterious and ancient evil that threatens a planned party by rising from the underground, penetrating through a spiritual netherworld to usurp the two girl’s weekend plans to attend the coolest party in town. It will mark the second venture by Smith in a trilogy of films, nicknamed the “True North Trilogy” set in the vast and spacious Canadian countryside. The first, Tusk, is currently scheduled to do the rounds in the Autumnal film festival circuit and features largely the same cast as Yoga Hosers. Harley Quinn and Lily Rose also appear in Tusk in roles that are synonymous with Smith’s directorial oeuvre: convenience store clerks. For Yoga Hosers, however, the girl will take on much more pro-active roles.
