Jay And Silent Bob Reboot’s Ensemble Cast Includes Three Batmans

When asked to describe the newly-unveiled Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, Kevin Smith summed it up perfectly: “it’s a movie which makes fun of sequels and remakes and reboots while being all three at the same time.” Where do we sign up?

Hot off this morning’s decidedly Nsfw trailer and we have official confirmation that the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot features not one, not two, but three Batmen Batmans. You can count Ben Affleck among that exclusive club, though Kevin Smith refused to divulge further details of those other two Caped Crusaders.

Chances are the writer-director-star has made room in his ranks for Diedrich Bader, who voiced Bruce Wayne in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, while Kevin Conroy seems like another safe bet, given he previously worked with Kevin Smith on Yoga Hosers. And let’s face it: barring some unforeseen twist, we can effectively rule out Robert Pattinson,

The first Jay and Silent Bob Reboot trailer has been released, offering a first look at writer/director Kevin Smith’s first film since 2016’s Yoga Hosers.

‘Jay and Silent Bob Reboot’ Trailer: Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes Get Crazy Meta
Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes’ iconic indie stoners Jay and Silent Bob are officially back in the debut trailer for this fall’s “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.” The characters made their debut nearly 25 hours ago in Smith’s breakout 1994 indie “Clerks” and recurred in other Smith films like “Mallrats” and “Chasing Amy.” Smith wrote and directed a standalone movie for the characters called “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” that opened in 2001. Jay and Silent Bob last appeared in “Yoga Hosers.”

“Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” follows the title characters as they discover Hollywood is attempting to remake an old movie based on their lives. Jay and Silent Bob head out on a cross-country trip to stop the movie from being made and predictably get into an onslaught of shenanigans. Joining Smith and Mewes on screen are Rosario Dawson, Justin Long, Shannon Elizabeth, Craig Robinson, and many more.

Jay & Silent Bob Reboot Red Band Trailer: The Boys Return to Destroy Hollywood

Jay & Silent Bob Reboot Red Band Trailer: The Boys Return to Destroy Hollywood
The first trailer for Jay & Silent Bob Reboot is here! Good to his word, Kevin Smith assured fans not long ago that he would be bringing the trailer for his latest directorial effort to San Diego Comic-Con this year. Since not all of us could be at the sacred grounds of Hall H to experience the action, he was kind enough to release the Comic-Con trailer online ahead of time, which gives us our first real look at Smith and his longtime collaborate Jason Mewes back as the iconic duo.

It's been a long time since Kevin Smith decided to revisit his own cinematic universe, known as the View Askewniverse, which he started 25 years ago with Clerks. The last time was more than a decade ago when Clerks II was released back in 2006. This time around, Smith is giving us a sequel to 2001's Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,

Madness in the Method Trailer: Stan Lee Joins Jason Mewes & Kevin Smith in Hollywood

Madness in the Method Trailer: Stan Lee Joins Jason Mewes & Kevin Smith in Hollywood
Following the passing of legendary comic book creator Stan Lee, his run of cameo appearances in various movies is also coming to an end. However, he will be giving us one final live-action cameo in a posthumous performance in the upcoming crime-comedy movie Madness in the Method. After the lack of a Lee cameo in Spider-Man: Far From Home, it's nice to know there's still one more portrayal from the legend on the way, even if seeing it is a bit bittersweet.

Madness in the Method is the directorial debut for Jason Mewes, better known as Jay from the Jay and Silent Bob movies. Mewes also stars in the movie along with Kevin Smith, with both playing fictionalized versions of themselves. After Smith tells Mewes that the only way to survive Hollywood is to toughen up, Mewes takes the message a little too closely to heart. Determined to escape from under Smith's shadow,

Kevin Smith Has Perfect Comeback to People Who Hate His Recent Movies

Kevin Smith Has Perfect Comeback to People Who Hate His Recent Movies
Kevin Smith knows some people think his movies “went to shit” over the last decade. The writer-director was one of the success stories of the 1990s American indie film boom thanks to his debut “Clerks” and follow-up efforts “Mallrats,” “Chasing Amy,” and “Dogma.” As of late, Smith has been more of a critical punching bag than a pioneering indie filmmaker. The director’s last release, “Yoga Hosers,” was widely panned by critics and bombed at the box office. And yet, Smith refuses to look at the glass half empty.

“People tell me the quality of my flicks went to shit when I got married and had a kid,” Smith recently told his critics on social media. “If so, it was a fair trade: whatever ailed me as a piss-&-vinegar 20-something was gone, replaced by joy and contentment. Great art comes from pain — so maybe happy people don’t make great art.

“All These Small Moments” Contains A Big Supporting Turn From Harley Quinn Smith

Independent cinema is at its best when it can launch a new star. Whether in front of or behind the camera, making a discovery is a highlight of the medium. In the case of the indie drama All These Small Moments, it serves to showcase a tremendous supporting turn by young Harley Quinn Smith. There’s a lot to like about this film, as it’s one of the few 2019 releases of really high quality, but Smith stands out. She hinted at this talent in her father Kevin Smith’s underrated Yoga Hosers, but this really hammers it home. She’s someone to watch out for. The movie is an indie drama, centered on a young man’s coming of age. For Howie (Brendan Meyer), his entry into adulthood is taking place as his parents (Brian D’Arcy James and Molly Ringwald) are seeing their marriage crumble. Every single day,

Kevin Smith Confirms ‘Jay and Silent Bob’ Reboot, Starts Pre-Production
Kevin Smith has launched pre-production on his long-promised “Jay and Silent Bob” reboot with Jay Mewes and producer Jordan Monsanto.

Smith, who first announced the project in August, 2017, made the announcement in Jan. 1 tweet: “Spent the first day of 2019 having a #JayAndSilentBobReboot pre-pre-production meeting.”

Smith and Mewes made their film debut in the 1994 comedy “Clerks,” funded for $27,000 through Smith maxing out his credit cards. Smith wrote, directed, co-produced, and acted in “Clerks,” portraying the character Silent Bob as part of the team of Jay and Silent Bob.

Kevin Smith Says He’d Rather Watch Avengers 4 Than Ever Make Another Film

Earlier this month, writer, director, and podcaster Kevin Smith made the bold claim that Avengers: Infinity War is the best movie ever made, so long as he’s smoking two joints while watching it. Now, when it comes to the highly anticipated Avengers 4, the filmmaker may have even topped this hyperbole.

Speaking on his Hollywood Babble-On podcast, Smith implied that he’d rather retire from his own directing career than never see the Infinity War sequel.

“It’s the thing I looked more forward to than anything else in life and I’m going to make my own movie in January, so f*** that, I want to see this in a big bad way,” he said. “If somebody was like, ‘You don’t ever get to make a movie again but you get to see Avengers 4,’ I’d be like, ‘Alright, done.’ These are my f***ing stories, b****.

Tiff Review: ‘A Faithful Man’ is a Self-Aware, Light-Hearted Romantic Farce

Beginning on a shot of the Paris cityscape–yes, the Eiffel Tower plainly in view and everything that surrounds it–Louis Garrel’s A Faithful Man self-awarely announces itself in the tradition of decades of French cinema; say the kind that the average movie-goer assumes every single film from the country is like. With long conversations, wistful romances, and a deadly earnest piano score, one won’t be unable to see of influence of Garrel’s father on the picture. Yet if not as recognizably personal and hear-ached as those magnificent pictures, the son still shows heavy promise in his second feature.

Short, light-hearted, and easy to follow, A Faithful Man is almost by default the definition of a likable film. Again, an accomplishment for a drama that returns often to the image of a graveyard. And packing a surprising amount in 75 minutes–both a love triangle and a murder

Kevin Smith’s 13 Best Jokes From His Graphic Comic-Con Recap of His Near-Fatal Heart Attack

Kevin Smith’s 13 Best Jokes From His Graphic Comic-Con Recap of His Near-Fatal Heart Attack
San Diego Comic-Con fixture Kevin Smith spent the first half of his improvised, 90-minute Hall H talk giving a beat-by-beat account of the heart attack he suffered in February. “I didn’t die, but I was real fucking close,” said the 47-year-old filmmaker, who also used his stage time to promote fundraising for his Rivit TV series, “Hollyweed,” and to energize fans about “Jay & Silent Bob Reboot” (shooting this November).

Smith’s family has a history of cardiac problems: His father “died screaming” during his own heart attack at age 67, while his mother has a stent in one of her arteries. During his personal ordeal, Smith learned that his Lad artery was 100 percent blocked. The heart attack happened while Smith was filming Showtime comedy specials at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, California. Instead of escorting him to the closest emergency room, knowledgable first responders took him to Adventist Health Glendale,

The Flash Cast Members Join Jay and Silent Bob Reboot
The cast of Jay & Silent Bob Reboot just got a whole lot more flashy, so to speak. Kevin Smith, as per usual, was on hand at San Diego Comic-Con to speak with fans in Hall H. During the course of his panel, the Clerks and Tusk director revealed that he's brought a trio of actors from The Flash TV series on board the cast for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. That includes Grant Gustin, who plays Barry Allen/The Flash, Tom Cavanagh, who portrays Harrison Wells and Carlos Valdes, who plays Carlos Ramon on The CW series.

Kevin Smith didn't reveal any specific details about their casting at the present time.

Are these merely going to be glorified cameos?
