The first official image from writer/director Kevin Smith’s next movie Zack and Miri Make a Porno is online via USA Today.

In the article they tackle the hard-hitting facts about the movie we all want to know. Like… the title. Yeah, they had a chance to ask questions of stars Seth Rogen will play Zack and Elizabeth Banks and they harped on the word “porno” in the title, like somehow that is risque. It isn’t. If it is too offensive for someone, then oh well, they won’t see a movie that they would otherwise probably be very offended by.

Though this paragraph from the article sums it up.

“What’s weird about it is, it’s dirty. But it’s so incredibly sweet,” Smith says, noting that Porno will be rated R (obviously, there’s no actual porn in it). Banks says grown-ups are mature enough for immature jokes. “These kinds of comedies, these sweet and sexy comedies, have all started to push the envelope. This movie takes it even further, that’s definitely true. But if you’re over 15 years old … you know what sex is, and in comedy you’re always trying to find those taboos that you can break for a laugh. Sex in America is a huge one.”

Also (from Variety), Rogen just landed the lead in WB’s Observe and Report, which starts shooting as soon as this film wraps in April.  It’s about a mall cop who starts a turf war with the local police.

Oh yeah, first image.  It’s below:
