If you weren’t lucky enough, or live close enough, to score a ticket to the limited theatrical tour of Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie, don’t give up hope. You can check it out on demand starting May 6th. We’ve got a new movie poster and trailer to celebrate this event. (more…)
Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie
Kevin Smith‘s Publicity-Pimping, Stage-Show, Road-Trip Tour is coming to a town near you, well maybe in the next state, no, not that one the other one. The show features their new animated movie, Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie.
The movie’s budget is unsurprisingly $69,000. Get it, 69, that’s some kind of exotic sex move that makes pre-teen boys giggle, and others like myself, that never really grew out of those fits of giggles and guffaws that follow someone farting, falling, or making an unexpected and unintended innuendo.
THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID ! ! !
The animated movie was produced by Jason Mewes and animated by Steve Stark. Tickets to the live event will set you back at least $45 bucks with VIP tickets and bundle of goodies (T-Shirt, Signed Poster, Photo-Op, VIP Laminate and Lanyard) sucking $250 dollars right out of your back pocket, but you’ll get to see Smith strut across the stage with his arms raised shouting, “Are you not entertained?!?!” all Gladiator style. Smith can tell a good story.
Check out the trailer below, turn the sound down if you’re gonna ignore the NSFW warning in the title, the “F” bomb rains down like flak on D-Day at Omaha beach.
What do you think? Are you going to get out and check out the Tour? I’m not sure yet, but since I managed to get through this whole post without using the word “Snoogins” once I might just treat myself to some Jay & Silent Bob time.
Crap, I just used it didn’t I?
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, even if you’re imitating yourself. In this case, filmmaker Kevin Smith has announced his intention to travel theater to theater with his new film, Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie, when it’s released later this spring. The model is the same one he used when his last film Red State come out two years ago, turning that independent release into a D.I.Y. hit.
Details and a trailer for Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie are coming sometime in the next month, but the official poster for the film was recently posted on Smith’s Blog.
What do you Bastards think? Are you ready to buy your tickets for Smith’s Groovy Cartoon and Q&A?
If you’ve been wondering if we will ever return to the The View Askewniverse (that mythical land created by Kevin Smith and home of Clerks and related films) – WONDER NO MORE!
In a recent AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit, Kevin Smith dropped that we will indeed see his onscreen alter-ego Silent Bob and his ever present companion Jay (Jason Mewes) once more in Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie. Yes, that’s right… it’ll be animated. Word is that a lot of the cartoon is already complete and that it will be heavy on celebrity cameos (anyone wanna bet that means Ben Affleck,) and will be in the hands of animator Steve Stark.
Apparently the plan is to promote the movie in a similar fashion as Smith’s Red State, a SModcast Pictures road tour sometime next year.
With over a year wait on seeing the pair of professional loiterers, remember you can also watch Smith’s SModCo Cartoon Show over on YouTube or any of the 6 episodes of the Clerks cartoon from 2000, unless you tossed that VHS tape out.
Kevin Smith Talks More About ‘Hit Somebody’ and The Animated ‘Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie’
This past Thursday night, thousands of movie goers were privy to Kevin Smith invading their theaters in a live simulcast of Kevin Smith: Live from Behind. The event featured Smith and his hetero life mate Jason Mewes doing their podcast, Jay and Silent Bob Get Old, followed by an extended question and answer session. The Q&A revealed some very telling details on future projects.
As we already know, Smith’s hockey feature Hit Somebody will be his last feature length film. This is disheartening since Kevin still appears to have plenty in the tank. Anyway, Smith was hoping to have Hit Somebody ready for next year’s Sundance Film Festival, but with seven months till the submission deadline for Sundance 2013 and an upwards of 200 pages in script to sort through, Kev is not likely to deliver.
More details regarding Hit Somebody comes from film site Moviebuzzers.com. Their article states:
-Shooting is likely to start in June or July.
-The budget will be between $15-$20 million.
-The film is too pricey to tour ala Red State, but he does hope to host special Canadian screenings in hockey arenas with the -film playing projected on the ice.
-It takes place between 1950 and 1980 and isn’t a comedy. It’ll be more like Field of Dreams with hockey.
Aside from Hit Somebody, Kev dropped news on another project that fans are sure to gush like a school girl over… Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie. Yep, Jay and Bob are back! J&B Super Groovy Cartoon movie will be a blend of live action and R-rated animation helmed by Kevin and Smodcast Pictures.
While Smith never really spoke about the project Thursday night it was confirmed by /Film reader Raymond A. (Known as @smoothevity on Twitter) that Smith intends to have the animated film ready for Midnight Madness at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival.
What do you think about Smith and Mewes pairing up once again as their pop culture alter-egos?
