Clerks 2 - Jay and Silent Bob Weed Strains

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot isn’t getting a traditional theatrical release like its predecessor, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Instead, the comedy sequel from writer/director Kevin Smith will be released as a Fathom Event on both October 15 and October 17, 2019. If you can’t make it to the theater on either of those days, you might try your hand at attending one of the many Reboot Roadshow dates that will be hosted all over the United States. And since the movie is getting an unconventional release, it makes sense that the marketing leading up to the event is just as unique.

If you’re looking to get your hands on a nickel bag of weed before you take in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, you might be interested in picking it up from the duo that inspired Bluntman and Chronic themselves. Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes will be selling three new strains of weed inspired by Jay and Silent Bob at the Herbarium in Hollywood, California. And after you get your smoke on, you might want to take a deep dive into the making of Kevin Smith’s totally weird horror movie Tusk. Read More »

Bluntman v Chronic Poster

San Diego Comic-Con is nearly upon us, and Kevin Smith is preparing to debut the first trailer and a sneak peek from his forthcoming movie Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. The movie treads the same territory as Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back with the titular stoners setting out to stop a reboot of the fictional movie Bluntman and Chronic. However, this time instead of being a goofy adaptation of the comic book that’s full of dick and fart jokes, Hollywood decided to take the tokin’ duo in a different direction.

Kevin Smith has revealed the teaser poster for Bluntman v Chronic, the movie-within-a-movie at the center of Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. As you can see, Smith is clearly riffing on the gritty darkness of Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the actors bringing this new version of the stoner superheroes to life clearly aren’t Jason Biggs and James Van Der Beek again. Get a better look at the Bluntman v Chronic poster below. Read More »
