A pair of pics from the set of JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK!!!

Hey folks, Harry here.... With yet another report from JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK.... this time with pictures from the set.... which just wrapped up. As we speak grips are hauling in the film stuff that they, ummm... move around and stuff.... and Kevin is somewhere... I imagine he's standing atop one of those bird sweepers above a billboard in L.A. Looking out.... Planning the next scene in this epic production... Sort of like Walken in the PROPHECY.... but with circular motions. Well AICN's own Mr Dean, asking himself what Christ would do, snapped off a couple of digital pics.... (NO FLASH) of what was going on tonight.... And now you know as well! Also.... the final image on the page comes from (INSERT CLEVER ALIAS HERE) and the Make Up Room.... I believe you'll figure out what it is!

Hey Harry,

They are filming some scenes for the new Kevin Smith movie down the street. I headed down there with my digital camera and took a couple of pics. Unfortunately, it was dark out and I didn't want to use my flash, so most of them didn't turn out.








The scene that I watched was of Jason Lee and Dwight Ewell walking out of the theater talking when someone that I did not recognize says something to Jason Lee. Jason turns and attacks this guy. I don't know if you can read it but the two stars of "Bluntman and Chronic" are James Van Der Beek (Chronic) and Jason Biggs (Bluntman).








They are still filming as we speak. I am pretty psyched to see this flick. I can't wait to August.

You can call me Mr. Dean

    Bluntman & Chronic! Kevin Smith can do NO wrong. Off Topic: What is with the news that Tarsem is going to be the director of CONSTANTINE (Hellblazer)? And please give the John Constantine part to Hugh Jackman, not friggin Nic Cage or Mel Gibson.... Ew... NUXX OUT.....

    A few thoughts. . .

    by RenoNevada2000

    . . . My apartment walls are overcrowded with film posters, but I would definitely make room for that "Bluntman & Chronic:The Movie" poster in a second. Secondly, I guess we all know exactly WHAT Jay and Silent Bob are striking back about. This is probably Kev's way of expunging some left over demons from the whole "Superman Lives" debacle. It should be fun trying to find the John Peters in joke lurking in the background. Hmmm, part 5/ Episode 5 (The Empire Strikes Back). . . Maybe Kevin will open the film with a opening scrwall a la the Holy Trinity. Certainly the ultimate tribute to Star Wars. And to all those TBers who are going to run down the Kev and the ViewAskewinverse flicks- Unless someone is putting a gun to your head to force you to watch the movie, don't worry about it!

    Crawling from the wreckage

    by Brendon

    Dogma was so much of a retrograde motion on the part of Mr. Smith, I can only admit I'm excited to see and hear good news relating to this pic. I hope he doesn't over egg the cameos/movie-movie po-mo nonsense, but does in fact strike out, sincerely and strongly. If only he could learn how to direct as well as write... connellybrendon@hotmail.com oh - ps: any news on Brian Lynch projects? He was an associate of Smith's and I wouldn't be surprised to see him far outstrip KS in future...

    Van Der Beek and AP cast are gonna ruin it........

    by SGrn18

    Am I the only one who thinks James fucking Van Der Beek and the American Pie cast are going to ruin this movie???????? Kevin is completely selling out

    Vanderbeek

    by Nightshot

    "In case we die, I have to tell you..You've got the biggest D**K I've ever seen on a man!" five points to who knows where its from.. Vanderbeek is perfect. See, its poking fun at how they do ruin movies like that. Its a jab at studios who decide, lets take these familiar faces, throw them together, and call it a movie. See, and choosing to pimply hearthrobs to play Jay and SB is a perfect way to show what the studios will do to a GREAT idea. Case in point, Batman and Robin. Lost of stars..sucked anyway. I think the interesting thing will be if the movie sucks and thats what Jay and SB strike back about. A bit concerned about the movie within a movie thing, but I've expressed that elsewhere. BTW: "Titaic sucks, I hate Jake Lloyd, Matrix rules, bla bla bla" ZAMPH

    How is Affleck gonna fit into this?

    by Germster

    OK, i just have to say, GREAT report. This movie is gonna be so kick ass I can't stand it. I think the addition of Van Der Beek and Biggs in this type of roll is sheer BRILLIANCE. But, I have a question for my fellow talkbackers. So obviously Banky is at the World Premiere here, and I know that he and Holden had the falling out after Chasing Amy, but wouldnt Holden show up for this? Now the reason i ask is that I know for a fact that Affleck is in NY shooting Changing Lanes with Sam Jack. Unless he is shooting 2 movies at once, when is he gonna be able to shoot his part, in whatever capacity for J&SBSB? Anyone have any ideas??

    Another Genius Epic from Smith....

    by SteelyMax

    ... that won't be funny to anyone in about two years.

  • Jan. 26, 2001, 8:16 a.m. CST

    Re: Movies within Movies

    by Nightshot

    Very good on the Little Tokyo BTW. Thought I would share my post from the other Talkback and see what people thought.... "I'll tell you what, Why don't I go eat the whole G*D DAMN Tray, go throw up and then come back for seconds?" Five points to whosoever gets the quote. Well, this could be funny, and I do have faith in Kevin, its just that I feel its retreading some old ground. I mean, Jay and Bob were in Scream 3, attending a movie within a movie. The Player, Wes Craven's New Nightmare, even variations like Soap Dish and Noises Off.. its all the same idea. Exaggerate the events that happened in "reality" and, ha ha. It just seems to me that this better take a sharp left turn with some interference from God, or even better, make fun of the whole movie within a movie idea. Now that would be interesting. Kevin needs to not make the lucas mistake of seeing his own films as being great. In Episode I (obligatory) Lucas's biggest mistake is that he makes a big deal out of simple things and we're supposed to go.. WOW!! Look, its artoo! Look, its threepio, look, its Jabba! Look, obiwan is shaking Anakin's hand. I see the possibility of Smith thinking it will be cool for us to see Joey Lauren Adams shaking Chris Rock's hand, and stopping the forward motion of the film to let us "savor" that moment. The success of this movie (artistically if not financially) rides on its ability to give us those moments while pushing forward an interesting plot infused with a satirical irony that will be fresh to a post "Clerks" generation at the same time satisfying those who want a little more of the same. Its a fine line, Mr. Smith, I wouldn't want to be wearing your shoes right now. Oh and by the way, "F**K Jar Jar, I hate Harry, Bla Bla Bla". Also obligitory. Its all I have. ZAMPH

    yesterday on the set of Jay and Silent Bob

    by BooBoo

    I was an extra yesterday for the scenes filmed at the El Ray theater. It was a real Blast..Kevin and Co. were lots of fun and very gracious and professional. For the last scene of the night, I stood right behind Kevin Smith.. and even after 10 takes with a pooping Orangutan on his back, he never stopped smiling and kibitzing with the crew. It was real frustrating standing inches from Jay and Silent Bob and not act like a crazed fan boy and ask for autographs. If the enthusiasm of the cast and crew are any indication, it's going to be a great flick. It will definitely please fans, as it features all the characters of the View Askewniverse.

  • Jan. 26, 2001, 9:48 a.m. CST

    I can not believe you guys

    by Mooby

    I can not belive you guys at Aint it Cool would post this. I was on the set yesterday as an extra and I saw the poster up close. There are tons of inside jokes on the poster itself. I am just pissed that you guys would let the blunt out of the sack like that. I talked too a lot of people on the set like Mewes, Steve Dave, and Walt Flannagan and they said this is the funniest thing Kevin has written and it will be hard for them not to get an NC-17. I think Kevin is a genius and a really nice guy. He got on stage and talked to all of us and told us how proud he was of us and how the fans are the ones that make his movies work. This movie will be Kevin's big one. They are ending the thing with a bang and I do not think it will dissapoint the fans and even the ones who believe Kevin is a hack. How many hacks do you know that have a movie festival (Vulgarthon), a retail store selling items from there movies and such a great fan base. I just do not get it. I just do not believe that after Mysterio posting a spoiler free report you guys would post the Bluntman and Chronic thing. Seems kind of odd.

    Kevin knows what he's doing...

    by twonkenn

    I have to agree with an earlier postee (is that right?) who said the casting is a parody of Hollywood. Like James Brolin playing Pee Wee in PWBA. I suspect that each of these roles will be very small in scope, but will just add to the zany humor that is the View Askew universe. Right, Kev? Snoogans. Those of you who don't understand his humor are probably the same people who don't like MP: Holy Grail because they have stupid accents.

    Sell Out, but so what

    by Senor Askew

    Kevin Smith has indeed sold out, but that doesn't mean he won't give us a funny movie. I would rather not have the Dawson's Pie cast in their, but I'll put up with it just to see those moments with Brodie Bruce harping about something or any sightings of old characters.

  • Jan. 26, 2001, 11:52 a.m. CST

    no offense

    by scriptmaniac

    But those who say Kev has sold out are pretty stupid. So he has Biggs and Van Der Beek in his movie. Did you figure out that Van Der Beek's playing Jay and Biggs is playing Silent Bob in the Bluntman & Chronic movie. That's pretty f'ing hilarious. Also, i have a bone to pick with Harry. You ran Mysterio's report a few days ago, and it was cool because there were no spoilers about the flick. We're not talking Episode 2 spoilers, but it'd be kinda cool to be surprised at some of the cameos in this flick, and who's playing who. And now all of a sudden a major spoiler about the flick, without warning whatsoever. Don't you think the surprise at who Van Der Beek and Biggs are playing would have been that much more funny, if we didn't know about it 7 months ahead of time. Oh well.

    God, another drug-humor -laden saga from the inept Kevin Smith.

    by beaoure

    I'm not getting burned again. I can't think of another director that I've given more chances than Kevin Smith. His writing and directing are the most ridiculous tripe I've ever come across. Each time... each fucking time... I'm wooed by the wonderful reviews into giving his latest train wreck a day in court... Clerks... Mallrats (okay, so that one wasn't even a critical success)... Chasing Amy... Dogma... I'm sorry, but they're all terrible. I can't REALLY be the only one who thinks this, can I? It's true, I couldn't care less about cannabis humor, but at least make an effort to appeal to those who aren't stoned, smashed, or tripping, huh? And what's with 'Silent Bob'? What's so silent about him? After his 15 minute diatribe in Chasing Amy, the gag is destroyed. Smith and his Nimrod partner 'Jay' have to be the least competent actors in recent memory, but yet the masses clamor for more. It has to just break the heart of worthy directors like Terry Gilliam (who have to fight the studios for every penny to get a half-decent budget) to see foolishness like this. Give the cash to the real artists, for the love of God!

  • Jan. 26, 2001, 1:34 p.m. CST

    And, lest there's any confusion

    by beaoure

    Biggs and Van Der Beek? Never heard of them, but I sincerely doubt it'll be within their power to save this flick from the clutches of Kevin Smith's incompetence. An all-star cast couldn't pull Dogma from the mire, why should these fellas be able to?

  • Jan. 26, 2001, 2:17 p.m. CST

    A message for beaoure

    by JEWELS

    I believe that you are way off on what Kevin is trying to acconmplish. If you do not understand his movies why watch them. You sound like an 80 year old man (which is not Kevins demo). He is one of the wittiest writers in hollywood right now. He believes in his fans and no we are not drugged out stoners I have never done drugs in my life and I think Kevin is one of the most talented filmmakers of my lifetime. His talent is different than Speilberg or Kubrick. He has never claimed to be the worlds greatest filmaker he just speaks to a young audience and makes movies we want to see. If Art house films are your taste then Kevin's movies are not for you. Maybe you should write, produce, direct and star in your own movies lets see how succesful you are.

  • Jan. 26, 2001, 4:28 p.m. CST

    SGrn18 you are missing the point

    by coop

    In case you are not getting the joke, Van DerBeek (sp?) and that kid from American Pie are only cameos in the film to show what Hollywood would do with the comic book "Bluntman and Chronic" if they made a full length feature out of it.

    the Gilliam comment

    by thatguamguy

    um, wasn't Gilliam's *last* movie just a big drug fest? Just checking. I still love the man, but, jeez, talk about a hypocritical criticism of Kevin Smith (who, incidentally, has never had or needed the budgets Terry Gilliam has needed and deserved).

  • Jan. 26, 2001, 6:47 p.m. CST

    I like him, but he's not witty.

    by Senor Askew

    I've gone on record before as saying I enjoy Kevin Smith pictures for what they are, mainly escapist fare with dick and fart jokes, everyone needs a good laugh. But one thing I've never understood is people saying Kevin is witty? And remember I'm an Askewniverse fan. Kevin hasn't said anything original since Clerks and I don't see how anyone can say he is witty and writes killer dialogue between characters . Part of his success is the fact that he gets solid actors; well mostly with this flick his selection is questionable; but I still want to see how it all turns out.

    Dogma Special Edition DVD?

    by MaryM

    I'm really looking forward to Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.. thanks to Harry and co. for getting the word out to us. But, I'm pining madly for info on what's up with the special edition release of Dogma.. just have to see the outtakes like the missing Star Wars dialog between Damon and Affleck on the train scenes, plus! Any info re: this would make me one happy woman.

  • And you call your self a geek, Ha!!.. K-Smith is the fusking shit and his movies are rock hard and thay make me rock hard!! That right its better than mastermating with Kraft singles and baby lotion!! Keep up the good work Kev. And make Jason Lee Fletch!!! Yes....Now its off to watch the chapter in Dogma when we meet Salma!! Get Some Cheez And put that Bitch on Repeat!! heheeh -jd

    Is the last guy in favor of Smith?...

    by Bry-Guy

    I can't really tell. All the things he's seemingly criticizing Smith for are fantastic to a layman like me. Pot? Totally. Violence? Absolutely. Video Games? Yes sir. Kevin Smith? I know and love his style. I also enjoy the rants of Dennis Miller. Republicans? Go fuck yourself. This country is headed for another civil war. Not because I want it, but watch and see the gradual dwindling of our liberties. All I ask for is an Attourney General who actually BELIEVES in the legislation he's sworn to uphold. Not just upholds it because he's SWORN to. What other signal of the coming apokalypse do you need? Another thing...I don't know anyone who voted for our president. Even my southern Republican friends and all their friends know that this election was about creating a modern day dynasty. We are FUCKED!

  • Jan. 27, 2001, 11:09 a.m. CST

    so who sold out Bluntman and Chronic, Lee or Affleck?

    by Tall_Boy

    I hope they play along with that, cuz at the end of Chasing Amy, the comic had been cut off. My guess is that it was Lee's character (Banky). . .the fuckin' tracer. . .

    To all the HATERS - and lovers

    by Cruel Shoes

    Pure and simple, you either love Kevin Smith and his universe or you don't. I've got no problem with that. I've spent weeks trying to convince film professors of the genius of The Big Lebowski. I've spent a lot of time convincing certain friends of the genius of Heat. But when somebody say they don't like Kevin Smith I walk away, they need never get it. I'll be just fine "getting it" all by myself over here. Because everyone that loves Kevin Smith thinks he speaks to them, and them only. The stoner, the indie filmmaker, the comic book nut, star wars fan, ad-exec, mallrat... The film was made for you and you only. So I don't get down on the haters, because I still feel like Kev's only talking to me. God bless that man.

  • Jan. 29, 2001, 10:42 a.m. CST

    Hmm... complex

    by insincere_dave

    Kevin Smith is possibly one of the finest writer of our generation. He keeps his characters at just the right distance: we don't want to be them, but we do want to know them. They're all flawed in one way or another, and it's in this way that he's created the most realistic continuity that movies have seen in a long time. Unfortunately, he's a barely-above-average director, so his films do tend to be criticised for this. Accept him for what he is: realistic, witty and flawed. Just like his characters. And you thought Jar-Jar was funny? What are you, French?

    Hey! If you didn't already know... As well as bein' a great actor, Jason Lee is also an incredible skater! He was one of my influences in skating as he had MASTERED street skating... One of the most stylish riders I've ever seen!!! I used to watch videos of him all through the Ninties... and although its been a while since Ive been out on the board myself, I still never tire of watching them! And then, all of a sudden, he turns up in one of my favourite Director/Writers movies! Absolutely Fantastic stuff! So, Kudos to Jason Lee... The Multi Talented Man! :o) PAUL.

    Tolerance...

    by Sibster

    What a wonderful world we live in where a man like Kevin Smith is actually able to present his ideas to the world in the form of film. As with all of us on this rock we call home, not all of Kev's ideas are the most well thought out or pertinent to world affairs. The fact is, Kevin Smith is not a genius. He is not a visionary and he certainly is not responsible for any sort of social change. Kevin Smith IS, however, a fantastic creative mind. With the obvious exception of Mallrats, which I thought was a great piece of mindless entertainment, Kevin has succeeded in giving us an insight into being. He has taken the most mundane of daily occurrences and turned them into entertaining commentaries on the human condition. If you fail to see the humor, or relevance, or to glean any kind of meaning from Kevin's films, please, for the God's sake, don't watch them. If you happen to dislike his films, please, voice your opinion, but don't belittle the people who actually enjoy them and are able to escape daily life through them. As for my fellow FansAskew, while F--K and S--T have great importance in the English language, there is no need to litter an intelligent comment page with them. The only success you gain by using them is perpetuating the image that all VA fans are mindless stoners without an intelligent thing to say other than spewing four letter words. Can't wait to see the new film. Best of luck to Kev and all the ViewAskew crew.

    Down to Earth

    by AlyssaAlex

    Kevin Smith is one of those few guys in the biz who just wrote scripts that reflect his life. He reaches a lot of people because I think everyone can identify with a number of the charcters. He launched Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's carrer not to mention the genius of Jason Lee. I personally love his writing and direction. What other director would pull Ben Affleck out of a multi-million dollar flick just to do a commentary for Chasing Amy that only costs according to Mosier a little over $200,000 dollars to make? HE was the one that got Damon and Affleck signed on with Miramax for "Good Will Hunting" a script they won an Oscar for and was incredible. I think he is just creative and expressing it to film/direction. Sure it is dick and fart jokes, some of it drama, some of it comedy (actually most of it comedy), some exploring the meaning of life. Now he is going all out, whether or not this is truly the last of the Jersey series, I look forward to it more than any other movie. For me, that is saying a lot. I have become a movie addict in the past few months. There is no doubt in my mind that Kevin Smith is going to be here for a while. I, for one, am glad of that. I love the chemistry he has with his crew, his actors, and Mewes. I hope you can take another look at Kevin Smith for those of you who don't know. The Special Edition Chasing Amy DVD should be wonderful. I have the original DVD release of it, as well as Dogma. (Who cannot love Alanis Morrisette as God?)That is my two cents worth. I'll see the fans at the theater in August 2001.

    by Lafors

    I for one think the movies are great. Being a writer myself and having two plays and two musicals done and produced, I know that criticism can be one of the hardest things. I'm looking forward to seeing the next installment of Jay and Silent Bob, and I like going to see Kevin Smith movies because it's time when you can go and see a film and just go in trying to have a good time. It's fun to watch a movie that you know everyone had a good time making, and such has been the case with every Kevin Smith film I've ever seen. I think with all of the actors out there, it's important that they love their jobs, and just having someone who makes the process fun is worth making more movies in itself. It's obvious, or else everyone wouldn't want to keep being part of the magic. Keep it up, Kevin!

    Smiths films are the first comedys I've seen in ages that actually reflect the real world whilst remaining funny. Sure Mallrats was bad, and I'm sceptical bout strikes back originality but I have faith earned from Clerks Amy and Dogma that if anyone can, Kevin Can. Snoogans

    Mallrats

    by rollergurl

    How can you say that Kevin Smith's films "are the first comedies (you've) seen in ages that actually reflect the real world whilst remaining funny", and say "Mallrats was bad" in one sentance??? Mallrats was a rad flick. C'mon!

    The whole Stoners thing...

    by TheDengar

    Okay, what's with this whole "his movies are made for stoners" thing? I don't know one person stupid enough to do that crap that would even understand a Kevin Smith film. "Ha... his name is Bluntman... Hahuha..." In fact, the only real mention of any illegal drug involves Jay, which is more of a character trait than anything else. It shows is idiocy and lack of care for the rest of the world. (Did I just misspell idiocy?) What do you think?

    Jason Lee the Pro Skater

    by TheDengar

    Hey, in case you didn't know, (And I don't know how you couldn't since someone else already mentioned this) Jason Lee was a pro skateboarder before he became an actor, and literally transformed skating into what it is today. He starred in what is considered to be one of the greatest skateboard films of all time, Blind Video Days. This film was amazing because, at the time that it came out, noone, including many other pro skaters, could name everything that they were doing. I mean, the tricks that they pulled in the early nineties are the same tricks that very few pro skaters can pull today. I mean, it was that amazing. Anyway, if you wish to view the video, you can see it in it's entirety at www.worldindustries.tv Check it out, it's pretty sweet!
