WATCH: Trailer arrives for Clerks III and it promises a return to form for Kevin Smith

July 6th, 2022 by Marc Comments

Man, that was a quick week!

As promised (here), writer/director/star Kevin Smith has delivered the trailer for Clerks III and, despite some of my misgivings, it looks absolutely great!

Picking up ten years after Clerks II, the movie follows  Dante (Brian O’Halloran), Randall (Jeff Anderson), Becky (Rosario Dawson) and Elia (Trevor Fehrman)  who finally seemed to all have their shift together after the events of the second movie.

But of course, it’s never that simple. Reflecting real-life events, Smith wrote this script after his own heart attack and decided to have Randall have a heart attack, reflect on his wasted life and finally do something that will leave a mark on the world. And, honestly, it looks like a real return to what made Smith’s movies relatable and so special in the first place, with lots of fun nods to the past including Ben Affleck appearing, the threat of being sued by Disney and a nod to Dante’s death in the original script for Clerks… longtime fans will get it.

No release date for sure yet, but it’s coming this Fall and we can’t wait. Nootch.

In Clerks III, following a massive heart attack, Randal enlists Dante, Elias, Jay and Silent Bob to make a movie immortalizing his life at the convenience store that started it all.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
