Kevin Smith announced that he will be taking his new film Red State on the road to share with selected audiences before its official release on October 19, 2011.  The tour will include live a Q&A with Smith and the film’s villainous star, Michael Parks.  Smith is trying to implement a new means of movie distribution which cuts out the middleman and increases profit margin by relying on word of mouth hype rather than enormous advertising budgets.  Check out the tour dates for the Red State U.S.A.
