“It opened the evening of Hurricane Sandy,” Smith detailed The Hollywood Reporter ahead of Wednesday night’s premiere at the TCL Chinese 6 Theaters in Hollywood. “Dante and Randall were locked up in prison because the original version Clerk III was inaugurated Jay and Silent Bob Reboot Where the police arrive and bust Jay and Silent Bob. They’re all arrested and there’s an interrogation scene and someone comes in and says, ‘We’ve got to take them out and put them in cells because it’s coming.’ And [the guys] ‘What’s coming?’ ‘They’re calling him Sandy.’ They lock themselves in a cell overnight and come out in the early morning devastated by the Quick Stop flood.”

Randall then waits in line and a crowd forms behind him, “like a weird move,” Smith added. “A village springs up in a movie theater parking lot. Randall created a lean-to, bodega-shanty version of Kwik Stop and became the town’s unofficial mayor. It was a film dealing with grief.”
