Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes unleashed the first trailer for their new animated adventure Jay & Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie! This is what Jay & Silent Bob fans get while we wait for Smith's final film Clerks 3. Maybe some of the more hardcore fans will like what they see in the animated film, but it really kind of just fell flat for me, and did nothing to make me want to see the movie. It just seems like there was a lot of recycled stuff from Mallrats and Jay & Silent Bob Strikes Back. But maybe some of you will look past that stuff, and enjoy what you see. Here's the synopsis...
When they can no longer stomach the ever-growing weed of suburban crime, Jay and Silent Bob take on the mantles of costumed avengers Bluntman and Chronic, smashing the super-villains they accidentally create! Can the Doobage Duo save their beloved Jersey 'burbs from their new arch enemies, the League of Shitters?While clearly not the comic book movie the world wants, GROOVY MOVIE is the comic book movie the world needs!
The movie features the voice talents of Jason Mewes, Eliza Dushku, Ralph Garman, Ben Gleib, Tara Strong, Jennifer Schwalbach, Jon Lovitz, Neil Gaiman, Ray William Johnson, Scott Mosier, Walt Flanagan, Bryan Johnson, Brian Quinn, Ming Chen, Michael Zapcic, Kevin Conroy, Brian "Comichead" Faraldo, Jensen Karp, and Kevin Smith. The movie was also produced by Jason Mewes, and directed by Steve Stark.
The movie will be hitting the road with Q & A screenings like Smith did for Red State, tickets for which will cost you $52. Check out the trailer and tell us if you'll be making an effort to check this one out!
