Bluntman and Chronic Jay & Silent Bob Reboot

Bluntman & Chronic are getting a new start in Jay & Silent Bob Reboot, and a new poster shows how gritty it’s all getting. Kevin Smith posted a poster for the film-within-a-film on his Instagram account ahead of the Jay & Silent Bob Reboot trailer debuting at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. You can see it below, complete with a gender-swapped Chronic and a Batman V Superman sensibility.

Smith wrote:

“This weekend at Comic-Con, we’ll be debuting the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot trailer during my Saturday night Hall H panel (right after the Marvel Studios 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 Jay and Silent Bob Reboot that I haven’t made public yet. Like this faux movie artwork upon which our plot turns.

In the new adventure, Jay and Silent Bob find out the old Bluntman and Chronic 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 Jason Biggs and James Van Der Beek 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 View Askew 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.) Art by #marianodiaz!

Jay & Silent Bob Reboot stars Smith, Jason Mewes, Brian O’Halloran, Jason Lee, Shannon Elizabeth, Rosario Dawson, Chris Hemsworth, Joey Lauren Adams and a host of other returning View Askweniverse players. It will take jabs at reboots, remakes, and sequels while simultaneously being all three at the same time and is expected to release, as Smith says, in the fall.
