BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Kevin Smith soldiered on, and ended up playing to nearly 2,000+ people, according to reports Ė or as Smith calls it, one-third of the room. Listen to the whole Podcast. Itís a terrific recount of it, where Smith talks honestly about how his greatest nightmare was always the fear of showing up to a Hall H panel and finding no one in the room.
As awesome as the Star Wars panel was at Comic-Con last week, it wasn't without casualties, as it totally screwed over Kevin Smith. But it's okay, J.J. Abrams apologized.
No one should have to follow Star Wars at San Diego Comic-Con. And yet, if ever there was a man for the job, itís Kevin Smith. The comic-book icon and indie movie auteur typically takes the post-Marvel slot in Hall H, and maintains a chunk of the crowd as he regales them with filthy stories of his time in the Hollywood trenches. Well, not tonight.
Fans of writer/director Kevin Smith will tell you that his most popular characters - Jay and Silent Bob - have only ever been featured within the director's own work in what are referred to as the "View Askewniverse" movies. That may soon change, however.
Kevin Smith is the first to admit that he won't be directing any big-budget comic book movies. Of course, thatís not to say that heís without ideas should such a project fall into his lap. He explains that heíd ideally tackle a rather dark, obscure DC Comics character, The Question.
Yes, Kevin Smith is still working on Clerks 3, and he's still talking about it. For those still aching to see the third installment, you can rest assured knowing that Smith has taken some cues from William Shakespeare in conceiving this project.
When it came to naming the sequel to Clerks., Kevin Smith ultimately took the easy path and simply decided to call it Clerks II. As such, when it was revealed that Smith was working on a sequel to Mallrats, there was a very strong possibility that the final title would simply be Mallrats 2. Evidently that won't be the case.
No one pulls off a cameo appearance quite like Stan Lee. With one of his famous pop-ins coming in this weekendís Avengers: Age of Ultron, itís high time that Lee pass along his knowledge and technique to the next generation of great cameo actors.
Kevin Smithís long-belated sequel, Mallrats 2 is apparently moving along as he corrals most of the members of the cast of the 1995 original film, setting what should be a raucous reunion. However, thereís one character in particular played by a then-unknown Ben Affleck who may be a more difficult acquisition. Now, Smith provides an update on that situation.
Director Kevin Smith breaks news that the legendary Stan Lee will return in Mallrats 2. Stan Lee will have a more prominent role than before.
In what feels like a relatively short time, Kevin Smith announced Mallrats 2, got the gang back together for another afternoon of retail bliss, and started planning to film this year. A big part of the fun is going to be seeing all of our favorite characters again, but there will also be some new faces as well.
Kevin Smith has been firming up the cast for Mallrats 2, the sequel to the second feature film he directed after Clerks. In the latest installment of his Hollywood Babble-On podcast, Smith stated that Mallrats 2 is the film heís focusing on next, which means weíll have to wait even longer for Clerks 3.
Fans of Mallrats have a lot to look forward to as Kevin Smith has been busy reuniting the original cast for Mallrats 2. Now that the sequel is in the works, he's added even more familiar faces.
The first trailer for the Kevin Smith biopic Shooting Clerks has been released, and even though it's a little rough around the edges it looks promising.
It's pretty easy to argue that Jason Lee's Brodie Bruce is the best part of Kevin Smith's Mallrats, so it only makes sense that he would be included amongst the group of actors reuniting for the upcoming sequel, Mallrats 2. That being said, the announcement about the star's agreement to be in the movie is still the best one we've seen yet.
It was just last week that director Kevin Smith hinted that he was developing a Mallrats 2, and while he has three movies lined up to film before working on that project, that hasnít stopped him from starting to get a cast together.
Itís certainly looking like Kevin Smithís recent tease of a tweet regarding a sequel to 1995ís absurd, but adored comedy, Mallrats was on the level. Smithís latest tweet may finally confirm what fans have been recently approaching with cautious optimism. With Smith depicting a mini cast reunion and a bold pronouncement, Mallrats 2 clearly isnít just an optical illusion caused by gratuitous magic eye poster ogling.
Kevin Smith hints that a sequel to his sophomore film, Mallrats, might be in store. Thatís right, Mallrats 2 could be on the way.
Writer/director Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino came up at the exact same time in 1994, with both Smith releasing Clerks and Tarantino releasing Reservoir Dogs, thanks to the help of a little-known man (at that time) named Harvey Weinstein. Watch the two of them, along with Robert Rodriguez, as they discuss Clerks II in 2006 and then talk about the experience.
Despite the fact that his next movie, The Visit, doesnít come out until the end of the summer, director M. Night Shyamalan is apparently already busy at work on his next feature. He can't just sit around watching Unbreakable over and over, can he?
