Clerks 2

Post by MetaFox » Tue Feb 07, 2006 12:18 pm

Well, Clerks 2 is coming out this summer, and a teaser trailer is available.

http://www.clerks2film.com/teaser/clerks2teaser.mov

I really don't know what to think about this. Kevin Smith previously stated that it wouldn't be a celebrity gathering like Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back, and that the only returning View Askew regulars would be Brian O'Halloran, Jeff Anderson, Jason Mewes, and Kevin Smith. However, in the trailer there's Jason Lee, Ethan Suplee, Jennifer Schwalbach, and Ben Affleck.

It also looks goofier than I would have liked. I like the Kevin Smith movies - but from the trailer it looks as if this probably would have been better suited to a Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back type movie instead of a Clerks sequel. Heck, they could have made it a Mallrats 2 - the characters revolve around the same town and the events in Mallrats happened before Clerks. And Mallrats was goofier than Clerks - so from the trailer - it looks like this could have fit that mold quite well.

Though, as they say - looks can be decieving, so I guess I'll just have to wait and see. My hopes are now slightly down after seeing that trailer though.

It looks good, but I wish they would have left Clerks alone. I hope it doesn't turn into a "OMG LET'S SEE HOW MANY CELEBRITIES WE CAN CRAM INTO ONE MOVIE" type film like J&SBSB was. Not that it was a bad movie or anything, but what I liked about Clerks was that it was simple.

I've got mixed feelings on Clerks II. The trailer sort of feels just wrong... The sacred world of the original movie.. in COLOR!! Waaah!

I don't know what to think - I guess we'll find out this Summer.

They should'd called it something other than "Clerks 2"

pah, he should have made it for the same amount of money (inflation adjusted) in black and white and the cast and extras should have done their parts for free as a testament to the originals greatness.

my expectometer is twiching at 'crap'.

From the trailer, I take it that this movie is going to be more about how the corporate beast takes over smaller shops (Dante's OMG when he opens the shop, probably saw a out of business sign) and how you try and justify working at a shit job when you are approaching/in your 30's.
The Kevin Smith who wrote and directed this movie is not the same Kevin Smith who wrote and directed the original Clerks. He can't be. This movie has to somehow send a message about the man he is now, after the fame, after the notoriety.
I'm definitely more interested now that I know it simply won't be a rehash of the same old Clerks, which seems quite a few people want.

Edit: Looking around, I found this which is nice: http://clerks2.com/movies/goodbadman560.mov
Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, and Kevin Smith discuss an early version of Clerks II.

As a person, yes he is. He is very self-conscious and a bit self-absorbed. I try to step away from the rhetoric and just watch the films.

Same here.

It doesn't work too well though. So many god damned people praise him as though he were the second coming.

He really just reminds me of one of those pushover guys who will let you walk all over him only to bitch about it behind your back later.

Yeah - but the inclusion of the duo in this movie is supposedly a gift to Mewes for sobering up.

And the realization that Jersey Girl flopped and Smith is better off making J&SB films.
