‘Clerks III’ Trailer Brings the Gang Back to the Quick Stop
We finally have our first look at Kevin Smith’s Clerks III. It was everything a Smith fan can hope to see. The film goes back to its basics and that of Smith’s ground breaking indie comedy, Clerks. The only big change this time around is that we are now focusing on Randal Graves as opposed to our regular Clerks hero, Dante Hicks.
The synopsis for Clerks III goes like this:
“Following a massive heart attack, Randal enlists Dante, Elias, Jay and Silent Bob to make a movie immortalizing his life at the convenience store that started it all.”
The massive heart attack mirrors Smith’s own medical problems and brush with death. Things appear to be very meta since we are essentially witnessing Smith’s Clerks being made in a strange sort of retcon approach.
The synopsis to the first Clerks went like this:
Dante (Brian O’Halloran) is called in to cover a shift at his New Jersey convenience store on his day off. His friend Randal (Jeff Anderson) helps him pass the time, neglecting his video-store customers next door to hang out in the Quick Stop. The uneventful day is disrupted by news that one of Dante’s ex-girlfriends has died. After attending her memorial service, Dante muses over staying with current girlfriend Veronica (Marilyn Ghigliotti) or reuniting with ex Caitlin (Lisa Spoonhauer).
We are hoping that Smith’s Clerks III manages to be as good if not better than the first. Randal has always been a fave and it will be great to be able to focus on him for a bit. Personally, I am really hoping that we don’t get into the cheesy areas that Jay and Silent Bob reboot touched on.
Clerks III is set up for a September 13 Fathom Events release date. Smith is also doing a roadshow tour with the film. The tickets for the first 19 tour dates goes on sale along with the premiere of today’s trailer. In addition, Smith will add more Clerks III roadshow dates at Comic Con where he will also show the first five-minutes of the film.
‘The Boogeyman’ Director, Rob Savage Wants to Remake Stephen King’s ‘The Langoliers’
Rob Savage is making the rounds for his adaptation of Stephen King’s The Boogeyman. Of course while out making the rounds he was asked if he wanted to remake any other King books. Of course, he had an answer ready and waiting.
Savage chose King’s The Langoliers. This is a short story from Four Past Midnight that was all about a plane trip that ends up crossing dimensions and meeting up with a deadly being known as The Langoliers who are responsible for eating yesterday.
The synopsis for The Langoliers goes like this:
Ten passengers on a red-eye flight from L.A. to Boston discover that they are not the only people on the plane, but after making an emergency landing in Bangor, Maine, they discover that they are the only people on the planet. This film was based off the Stephen King short story Four Past Midnight.
The Langoliers made for a television movie event. The tv movie mainly flopped and was only remembered for its terrible CG effects for Langolier creatures. But, some, like myself loved the story and the cast that worked on the King project. The whole thing plays out like a Twilight Zone episode and it’s a lot of fun overall.
All that said, it would be great to see what Rob Savage would do the entire project. For one, would he make it into a series with multiple episodes? Or, would he go for the film route?
Did you like The Langoiers? Do you think it needs to be remade? Let us know in the comments section.
Watch ‘Terrifier 2’ Now For Free on Tubi
Terrifier 2 is one of those releases that makes us want to watch it over and over and over again. That re-watchability has pulled us back in a few times. That is why the news that Terrifier 2 being on Peacock for free is so rad. Time to get in a few more rewatches.
The return of Art the Clown managed to bring a hell of a lot of good and bad press with it. The fact that people threw up in theaters… or maybe pretended to sure did make a lot of people come out to see the film. Of course, that is awesome news for the film and its hardworking filmmakers.
The synopsis for Terrifier 2 goes like this:
Resurrected by a sinister entity, Art the Clown returns to Miles County to terrorize a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night.
If you haven’t watched Terrifier 2 yet what are you waiting for? You need to give it a look. It is one of those incredibly brutal slashers that have staying power.
Head over to Tubi and give Terrifier 2 a watch. If you hadn’t seen it before make sure to let us know what you think.
‘Hocus Pocus 3’ Has Been Confirmed At Disney
Hocus Pocus was a huge hit. The sequel managed to do really well on Disney+ and scared up a whole lot of candy corn and celebration. It managed to be a huge hit over the Halloween season and we were pretty pleased with it ourselves.
Well, the great news is that Disney’s Sean Baily went ahead and straight up confirmed that there will be a third Hocus Pocus film. The involvement of new witches Whitney Bailey, Belissa Escobedo and Lilia Buckingham is all but confirmed.
We could be looking at a stand alone series with the new witches involved or it could be possible that we may see a lot more of The Sanderson Sisters. We are really hoping to see the classic sisters. They are the heart of Hocus Pocus for me and that feeling isn’t going to be replaced anytime soon.
Hocus Pocus 2 went like this:
Three young women accidentally bring back the Sanderson Sisters to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking havoc on the world.
Are you excited about a sequel to Hocus Pocus? Are you hoping to see more Sanderson Sisters? Let us know in the comments section.
