FIRST LOOK: The gang’s all here in first image from Clerks III

August 17th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Well, we have our first look at the cast of Clerks III and, well, time catches up to us all eventually.

The new movie continues the story he started in Clerks (1994) and then continued in Clerks II (2006) and now, 15 years later, Smith has got the band back together again.

In this case, the band is (L-R) Trevor Fehrman (Elias), Brian O’Halloran( Dante), Rosario Dawson (Becky) and Jeff Anderson (Randall).

Smith has talked about how the new movie will see the gang making a movie after Randall suffers a heart attack, reflecting Smith’s own recent life events (here) and how it will, as a tribute to both previous movies, it will be filmed in colour and black and white.

I’m a big fan of Smith’s early work and Dante and Randall hold a special, identifiable place in my heart, so I’m always happy to spend some more time with them.

The image above from Vanity Fair is a repeat of the first look at Clerks II as you can see below.

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.

Previously, Smith had said“Years ago, Dante and Randal made me a filmmaker – so now it’s time I return the favor.”

The movie will also see Clerks and Clerks II stars Jay Mewes (Jay) and Kevin Smith (Silent Bob) return.

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….
