Kevin Smith recently announced that the first trailer for the upcoming Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will debut during his Hall H panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Now, ahead of the big event, he's also released the film's first official poster, which features a female version of the super-stoner Chronic.
"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)!" Smith wrote on Instagram. "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."
"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!" he continued. "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?"
Smith initially teased the new Bluntman and Chronic in March by tweeting a photo of the duo's costumes in the Blunt-Cave. However, this is our first indication that the latter will be played by a female in the reboot.
Written and directed by Kevin Smith, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot stars Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Shannon Elizabeth, Jason Lee, Donnell Rawlings, Joey Lauren Adams and an assortment of other stars. The film is expected to be released in theaters later this year. Comic-Con International in San Diego runs Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21.
