One, two. One, two, three, four. Noise, noise, noise. Jay and Silent Bob are back. Not striking back, but back. For it turns out that Saban Films have picked up the North American rights to Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob reboot, which will serve as a sequel to the 2001 film- Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
According to a report from Deadline, this new partnership with Saban Films will serve as a way to take Jay and Silent Bob to new places and do new things with the property. Bill Bromiley, the president of Saban Films, had this to say:
“Jay and Silent Bob is a global franchise which has a very loyal fan base. Partnering with Kevin at script stage on the next chapter of these iconic characters is a huge milestone. This is the beginning of a new initiative at Saban Films, to partner on IP with seasoned filmmakers and talent early on in the creative process all the way through distribution.”
Within Kevin Smith’s Askewniverse, we haven’t seen Jay and Silent Bob on screen since Clerks II, but we have seen the two together on-screen in roles very similar to this on television, such as on The Flash, where Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes might as well have been playing Jay and Silent Bob. Speaking of, in addition to Smith and Mewes, the Jay and Silent Bob film will include other actors from the Askewniverse. The film itself take pot shots at sequels, reboots, and remakes, with the irony that the movie itself is a sequel.
If I didn’t know any better, I would think that this movie was written by Wade Wilson. But what do you folks think? Are you excited to see Jay and Silent Bob back on the big screen in the future? If you have a negative comment about it, do you think they’ll pay your place a visit, as was done in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back?

New ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Posters Showcase Rodan, Mothra & Ghidorah
Earlier this week, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the newest trailer for their highly-anticipated sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The new trailer showed off some more epic action following the beloved monster along with some incredible sequences involving Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah.
Now, Legendary has shared three brand new posters for Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah. Given that Godzilla will be battling with these monsters in the new film, it makes sense to see them receive their own poster that boasts their size and scale as they unleash their terror against humankind.
Given that Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah all take flight unlike Godzilla, it is going to be stunning visual spectacle to see them take the skies and swoop down as they all battle to the bitter end for what looks to be one of the most-anticipated blockbusters of 2019.
You can check out the new posters of Rodan, Mohra and Ghidorah down below by clicking "Next".
What do you think of these new posters? Are you excited to see the King of the Monsters take the reins in this new sequel? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news from the MonsterVerse.
Directed by Michael Dougherty, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., with Ken Watanabe and Ziyi Zhang.
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be released in theaters on May 31, 2019.
