WATCH: New clip from Jay & Silent Bob Reboot lands

September 18th, 2019 by Marc Comments

A new clip from Jay & Silent Bob Reboot has dropped from nerd icon Kevin Smith.

The clip stars Val Kilmer and Melissa Benoist in a Bluntman and Chronic movie within the movie which rips on Batman V Superman and, look, I can’t lie, it looks terrible.

I’m a big Smith fan and when I was at university he played a big part in who I became and yes, I even look a bit like him (before he slimmed down), but it seems that the ma who directed Clerks, Dogma and Chasing Amy is long gone.

Will I try to see it? Of course… but it’s more out of tradition than desire.

What say you all?

When Jay and Silent Bob discover that Hollywood is rebooting an old movie based on them, the clueless duo embark on another cross-country mission to stop it again!

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will play in theaters everywhere for two nights only, October 15 and October 17,

Returning to the ‘View Askewniverse’ of cult classics CLERKS, MALLRATS and DOGMA, writer/director Kevin Smith stars as Silent Bob alongside ‘hetero life mate’ Jay (Jason Mews) and a A-list cast of comedic and pop culture talent. The film will be released in UK Cinemas on 29 November 2019.

When Jay & Silent Bob discover that a reboot of the Bluntman & Chronic movie (a movie based on a comic book based on them) is being made (and they lose the right to use their own names after the company behind it take out an injunction against them), they head off to ChronicCon in Hollywood to stop it.

Along the way, they run into Jay’s old girlfriend, Justice (Shannon Elizabeth) and Jay discovers he has a daughter he never knew he had – one who forces Jay & Silent Bob, at knifepoint, to take her and her 3 friends with them to Hollywood, so they can be extras in the new movie.

A reboot of Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, in which they find out a movie is being made based on a comic book based on them and head off to Hollywood to stop it, this movie takes on remakes, reboots and sequels, whilst simultaneously being all 3! Filled to the brim with cameo appearances from a myriad of past characters in the View Askewniverse, as well as some new, but very familiar, faces.

It also stars Brian O’Halloran, Jason Lee, Joey Lauren Adams, Jennifer Schwalbach, Harley Quinn Smith, Aparna Brielle, Treshelle Edmond, Alice Wen, Craig Robinson, Joe Manganiello, Jordan Monsanto, Frankie Shaw, Justin Long, Jason Biggs, James Van Der Beek, Donnell Rawlings, David Dastmalchian, Kate Micucci, Diedrich Bader, Melissa Benoist, Chris Wood Ralph Garman, Grant Gustin, Tom Cavanagh, Method Man, Redman, Chris Jericho, Fred Armisen, Marc Bernardin, Nicolas Cage, Molly Shannon, Scott Mosier, Rosario Dawson, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Kirkman.

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….
