It wouldn’t be Comic-Con without a panel from filmmaker, television director, comic writer, and pop culture influencer Kevin Smith. However, this year didn’t just have the Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma director gabbing away and telling showbiz stories.
At Comic-Con, the Kevin Smith Reboots Hall H panel debuted some clips for the filmmaker’s forthcoming comedy Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, a sequel/reboot of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Plus, he also debuted a scene from the film showcasing the movie within the movie: Bluntman v Chronic, clearly taking a cue from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Find out what we learned from the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot Comic-Con panel presentation below. Read More »
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 »

Many of the film’s most amazing shots were done practically without any post-production visual effects work needed. In fact, director Kevin Smith revealed that there are actually more visual effects shots in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot than the original Star Wars. Read More »
