Smith, of course, plays (a significantly slimmer) Silent Bob and Mewes, 45, plays Jay.
Smith explained: "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)!" Following in the footsteps of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, the new movie finds Jay and Silent Bob setting out to stop another film adaptation of the comic book that they inspired, Blutman and Chronic. Based on what we're seeing from the first red band trailer embedded at the top of this article, the new flick will serve as a commentary on the superhero movie genre as a whole.
Twenty-five years after Clerks, Jay and Silent Bob are back. 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.
Though the movie never saw the light of day, Smith will read from his script to benefit a local theater. The notion of Hollywood rebooting Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back seems ridiculous given how all the old Kevin Smith movies did at the box office. and yet here is a "reboot" (sequel really) and it is actually coming to theaters on October 15.
Brian O'Halloran returns as Dante Hicks, Rosario Dawson is back as Becky, Shannon Elizabeth reprises the role of Justice, Jennifer Schwalbach Smith - Smith's wife - is back as Missy, "Chasing Amy" star Joey Lauren Adams returns as Alyssa Jones and Jason Lee is Brodie Bruce. Level 2 also includes a photo with Kevin & Jay. New to the Jay and Silent Bob fray are the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Craig Robinson, Justin Long, Fred Armison, and everybody's favorite Wu-warrior Method Man.
