You’ll watch the red band trailer for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot and probably respond the same way that writer/director/editor/co-star Kevin Smith has self-described the film. In his words:
Literally the same…movie all over again.
But that’s the point and ultimately Smith works to make a commentary on the modern state of pop culture and going on the merry-go-round of adapting and than re-adapting popular source material for the big screen. With a few surprise cameos, this film might just epitomize what modern film has become. Check out the red band trailer below:
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot co-stars Jason Mewes, Jason Lee, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon. The film is currently set to be released in 600 North American movie theaters on Tuesday, October 15th with an encore on the 17th. In addition, check out the first couple posters for the film below, the first which parodies several movies at once:

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.)

And finally, the official poster for the film itself:
