Clerks 2

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by MikeyFingers, Jan 23, 2006.

  1. Any fan of the original will agree with me when I say: OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!:hyper::hyper::hyper::hyper:

    Here's some more info and a trailer: www.clerks2.com

    And wow, Randall looks like a totally different person.

    looks like the same person to me, just fatter.

    and is that rosario dawson? :eyebrow:

    it better not suck. kevin smith's last movie was "jersey girl," right? :scowl:
  3. Yea, he did Jersey Girl. I forgive him though, when you build you career on silly stuff like this, it's only normal to try something serious eventually.
    I can't wait for this. And yes, that's Rosario Dawson:D I like her;)

    yeah, i knew that kevin smith did jersey girl. in fact, i will post the following link, which i think of everytime something reminds me that jersey girl exists:

    [well, just go to penny arcade and search for "the adventures of twisp and catsby." it contains questionable language.]

    Ben Affleck is in it, it is guaranteed to suck.
  6. Too bad it's in color......

    Jazzin' ...Bluesin' and Funkin'

    Cool, it's on my must-see list.

    Only problem I have with it is it seems a LOT more plot driven, whereas Clerks was dialogue driven stuff.
  9. i'll be interested in seeing it

    kevin smith is responsible for any bit of street cred affleck had and then squandered so carelessly.

    kevin smith movies with ben affleck in them:

    chasing amy
    jay and silent bob strike back
    jersey girl :)p )
    clerks 2

    that's all of smith's major releases, except for the first clerks.
  11. Yeah Affleck is a regular in Smith's movies. I don't mind him being in it.
    Also, I think it's pretty funny that they work at a Mooby restaurant. I love the way he ties in details from older movies.

    I heard about this and I just hope it is decent. I don't think it could ever live up to the original, but we can hope....

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    Looks good to me. I bet it cost a whole lot more than the original's $10,000 budget, though.

    Ben Affleck is brilliant in Dazed and Confused.

    +1000!!! its some of his finest work!
    O'Bannion rules!
  17. $27,000 actually :p :D Sorry, I'm a Kevin Smith junkie. I probably know a little too much about his movies.

    @ Spectorbass83---Of course it's gonna be in theaters:eyebrow:
    I don't think there's a release date set yet, but I know the movie is already done being filmed so it can't be THAT long. Some time in '06, probably this summer.

    i find it hard to believe that rosario dawson and ben affleck (now) would be willing to work for peanuts.

    I think he was saying that the budget for the first Clerks was $27,000 as opposed to the previously mentioned $10,000 figure.
