Initially slated to debut at San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) this weekend, Saban Films decided to release the long-awaited trailer for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot today! The movie builds on a cinematic empire featuring cult classics Clerks (1994), Mallrats (1995), Chasing Amy (1997), Dogma (1999), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) and Clerks 2 (2006). Stars Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith get ready to hit the heart of hardcore pop culture enthusiasts. The raucous pair takes a comedic stab at sequels, remakes and reboots that inundate today’s film industry.
“It’s literally the same f**king movie all over again. It’s a movie that makes fun of sequels and remakes and reboots while being all three at the same time,” Smith told the Daily Beast last year. “I’m glad I got to live so we can at least get Jay and Silent Bob Reboot done, hopefully before I die.” Source: Vulture
The upcoming film features a myriad of high profile cameos including Method Man, Red Man, Molly Shannon, Kate Micucci, Chris Jericho, Chris Hemsworth and many more! Supergirl Melissa Benoist also joins Jay and Silent Bob film favorites Jason Lee, Brian O’Halloran, Shannon Elizabeth, Diedrich Bader and Rosario Dawson as she takes on the role of Chronic. An homage to the recently deceased comic legend Mr. Stan Lee is anticipated.
Teased back in February of 2017, it seems the cinematic wait will soon be over! A release date is expected this weekend during SDCC. Fortunate fans can flock to Hall H on Saturday to catch their favorite doped-up duo back in action! Will you be watching when they make their ‘highly’ anticipated return? 😉 Let us know at Fan Fest News.
