  8. Kevin Smith has long wanted a Jay and Silent Bob video game and stated we’ve only waited this long because he wanted to be heavily involved but didn’t yet have the time to commit… but that time is now! Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch is scheduled to release in Q4 2018.
  9. Kevin Smith played hooky every Wednesday to go to the movie theater with his dad, seeing classics such as Raiders of the Lost ArkSuperman II, and For Your Eyes Only.
  10.
