Jay And Silent Bob Reboot Trailer Drops Ahead Of San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Panel

Kevin Smith has officially brought the duo that inspired Bluntman and Chronic back together for another big-screen stoner romp, and we've finally got the trailer to prove it.

That's right, kids: just a day after teasing fans by releasing the film's first official poster, and a day ahead of his hotly anticipated Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, the slacker auteur himself dropped the very blunt-friendly (and very red-band) trailer for his soon-to-be-released comedy Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. And from the looks of things, Jay and Silent Bob (portrayed on screen by Smith's life-long pal Jason Mewes and Smith himself) have hardly mellowed with age. 

For those who haven't been keeping track, the infamously vulgar duo made their first appearance in Smith's legendary 1994 indie smash Clerks, where they spent the the bulk of their screen time hanging out in front of a convenience store getting high, going berserker, and generally annoying the hell out of the film's "protagonists" Dante (Brian O'Halloran) and Randal (Jeff Anderson). Needless to say, the crass, blunt-smoking pair proved a big hit with Clerks' rabid fanbase — so much so that Smith saw fit to put Jay and Silent Bob into five of his post-Clerks projects, including 1995's Mallrats, 1997's Chasing Amy (in which they were revealed to be the inspiration for the Bluntman and Chronic comics and eventual movie), 1999's Dogma, and 2006's aptly-titled yet underwhelming Clerks sequel Clerks II.  

Smith gave the duo their big day in the cinematic sun with 2001's Hollywood-bashing satire Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. That film saw the pair hitting the road to Tinseltown in hopes of halting production on (or at least getting paid for) the feature film adaptation of the comic book series Bluntman and Chronic. Along the way, Jay and Silent Bob encountered many characters from Smith's prior films, which prompted hilarious cameos from regular Smith collaborators like Ben Affleck, Jason Lee, Brian O'Halloran, Jeff Anderson, Joey Lauren Adams, and Alanis Morissette (reprising her role as God from Dogma) — not to mention a bevy of appearances from a dozen or so notable actors including Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Chris Rock, and Jon Stewart.

Our first official look at Smith's Jay and Silent Bob Reboot leads us to believe he's not exactly looking to reinvent the wheel in regards to his approach to narrative or character, with the profanity-loving pair once again heading to Hollywood to stop a Bluntman and Chronic flick from getting made. It looks like they'll be crossing paths with many of the same faces along the way as well — with Affleck, Lee, and more returning to the franchise (are we calling it a franchise?) for more obscenity-laced laughs. 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.

That being said, one of the most notable faces to appear in the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot trailer is that of Matt Damon, who last worked with Smith on Dogma. In that film, Damon appeared as a rogue angel named Loki who was out to bring on the apocalypse with his pal Bartleby (played by Damon's real-life bud Ben Affleck). Fans of that flick will be sure to notice Damon's attire in the trailer for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is basically the same that Loki wore in Dogma. No word yet on just how involved that fallen angel might be in the latest Jay and Silent Bob adventure. 

With Smith's San Diego Comic-Con 2019 panel scheduled for Saturday, July 20, we're all but guaranteed a slew of new details for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot this weekend. Hopefully the film's official release date (slated for sometime later this year) will be amongst the info coming out of Hall H. So be sure to keep an eye out for all the latest Jay and Silent Bob Reboonews. Until then, we offer a hearty "snoochie boochies" to all.
