Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back Sequel Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

At the beginning of 2019 it was announced that a sequel to 2001’s Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back, which Kevin Smith had written a couple of years before that, had been given the greenlight and would begin filming in February. The sequel, which is titled Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, will once again star Jason Mewes and Smith as the title characters and will poke fun at Hollywood’s obsession with sequels, remakes, and reboots, while being all three itself.

A couple of days back Smith announced that the first trailer for the movie would be unveiled during his annual Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con this Saturday night. But things change quickly, and instead the trailer has been shared today. You can check it out below.

As you’ll see in the trailer there’s going to be an insane amount of cameos in this one, as anyone who’s a fan of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back would expect. Many of them are familiar faces in Smith’s View Askewniverse, and many of them are new while still being very much familiar.

There are so many cameos, in fact, that I won’t even bother listing them all off. Mainly for those of you who like to go into a movie like this not knowing who’s going to show up (in which case you should probably skip the trailer), and also because, well…I’m a bit lazy. I’m sure you’ll understand once you’ve seen it.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will be released in theaters on October 15th. Smith and Mewes are also going on a tour called The Jay and Silent Bob Reboot Roadshow, which gives fans the opportunity to watch the sequel with Jay and Silent Bob live and in person.

Oh, and fair warning: this is a Jay and Silent Bob movie, and the trailer is of the red band variety. So you probably want to avoid for now if you’re at work or have tiny humans running around.

The stoner icons who first hit the screen 25 years ago in CLERKS are back! 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 all over again!

IT’S A (SUPER) GIRL! The majority of you guessed correctly: @melissabenoist, one of my favorite actresses in the world, indeed takes on the mantle of Chronic in our rebooted #bluntmanandchronic movie within @jayandsilentbob Reboot! (And we gave her some pants *before* the good folks at @supergirlcw!) I have loved working with Me-Me since I “directed” her in my first ep, #supergirllives. Number One on the call sheet sets the tone for the rest of production – and if that Number One is a tool, the set is a miserable place to be. But Melissa is the most exemplary and gracious Number One I ever met. She’s incredibly kind to EVERYONE in the cast and crew and she never complains about the long-ass hours, even when she’s hanging from ropes high above the ground. Then she opens up her mouth to act and you realize she’s that rare complete package in this business: true talent and true warmth. Some actors and actresses have a “process” that can be disruptive or alienating. Melissa doesn’t have to imposition anyone to be good at her job: she’s a natural. So naturally, two years ago, I asked her to be in #jayandsilentbobreboot. Melissa was the first person I asked to be in the flick (aside from @jaymewes and @harleyquinnsmith) and though it took a minute to get to the set, when we rolled cameras, she was Charm City! I saw her in the trailer in costume before we started shooting and the Last Daughter of Krypton gushed “When you asked me to be in the movie, you didn’t tell me I get to wear a cool costume too!” God, I love this kid – she’s the absolute light of the world. (And since her boyfriend is also *my* boyfriend, you might keep an eye out for a @christophrwood cameo too!) You’ll see Melissa’s Chronic and the finished #bluntcave in the #jayandsilentbobreboot trailer when it drops this weekend in Hall H at @comic_con! But until then, check the third pic to see a cameo of an infamous web portal last seen in #jayandsilentbobstrikeback! #KevinSmith #MelissaBenoist #supergirl #cw #arrowverse #JasonMewes #jaymewes #comiccon

This weekend at @comic_con, we’ll be debuting the @jayandsilentbob Reboot trailer during my Saturday night Hall H panel (right after the @marvelstudios panel)! It’ll go out to the world soon after, so folks are going to see much more of the cast, plot and in-movie artwork. So in anticipation, I’ll be sharing images from #jayandsilentbobreboot that I haven’t made public yet. Like this faux movie artwork upon which our plot turns. In the new adventure, #jayandsilentbob find out the old #bluntmanandchronic movie that was based on them is getting a Reboot – so they go back to Hollywood to stop it all over again! But as with any Reboot, the source material has been modernized – so the rebooted Bluntman movie (the reboot of the movie that starred @biggsjason and @vanderjames) now features a female Chronic! I won’t spoil who plays the new Bluntman and Chronic (it’s in the trailer), so I’ll take some guesses instead: Who’s Behind the Masks? When the trailer drops this weekend, you’ll get to see if you were right. But if you’re at Saturday night’s “Kevin Smith Reboots Hall H” panel, you’ll not only see the Reboot trailer: I’m gonna show you the #Bluntman movie-in-a-movie scene too! I can’t wait to start sharing this epic! It’s my all-time favorite of all my flicks and also a meta scrapbook of my entire career (and life) that sequelizes all the #viewaskew movies in one sprawling story! (NOTE: Reboot comes out in the Fall. The B&C poster says “Summer” because that’s when it comes out in the #viewaskewniverse.)
