A new Kevin Smith movie is coming out in a few weeks. Kind of. Fresh off last year’s small theatrical tour, Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie hits on demand May 6. Smith wrote and provides his voice to the film, leaving the directorial duties to Steve Stark. In this Askewneverse animated film, everyone’s favorite New Jersey stoners, Jay and Silent Bob, win the lottery and use the cash to turn into their crime fighting alter-egos, Bluntman and Chronic.
A longer trailer hit last year but a new poster and trailer have now been released for the on-demand release. Check them both out below. Read More »
Filled with references to Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back, Clerks, Batman movies and much more, the trailer for Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie is here. It’s the hard R-rated (if it was rated) animated return of everyone’s favorite New Jersey slackers, which will tour the country Red State-style along with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes. They provided voices and produced the flick, which is directed by Steve Stark. Starting in April, the film will be playing at concert venues across North America complete with a live podcast.
So how does the movie look? Crude, for sure, but aimed squarely at the people it’s meant to please: Kevin Smith fans. We’re talking potty humor, pop culture references and even more potty humor. See the trailer below. Read More »
