Calling All MySpace Members! See Your Name in Lights! The First 10,000 MySpace Members to Add the 'Mooby's Presents: Clerks II'

Page to their Friends List Will Have Their Names Added to the Ending

Credits of the Highly Anticipated Release of 'Clerks II' - in Theaters July

21st



    NEW YORK, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The Weinstein Company announced today
 that beginning tomorrow, Friday June 30, 2006, MySpace members will have
 the chance to have their names permanently listed in the ending credits of
 the highly anticipated release of "Clerks II." The first 10,000 people to
 add the "Mooby's Presents: Clerks II" page to their friends list will
 automatically be permanently added to the ending credits of the film, both
 in theaters and on DVD. The film is a sequel to Kevin Smith's ("Chasing
 Amy," "Dogma," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back") 1994 Sundance hit "Clerks"
 and again stars the hilarious foursome including Dante Hicks (BRIAN
 O'HALLORAN), Randal Graves (JEFF ANDERSON), Jay (JASON MEWES) and Silent
 Bob (KEVIN SMITH), and their new sexy manager Becky Scott (ROSARIO DAWSON).
 "Clerks II" is a Weinstein Company presentation that will be distributed in
 theaters nationwide on July 21, 2006 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc.
 (MGM). The online interactive agency Deep Focus, assisted in securing the
 promotion.
     Kevin Smith stated, "I've been a total MySpace junkie since March of
 this year, and have given up countless hours to the ten-at-a-time art of
 friend-approving. For MySpace to let "Clerks II" into their "top 8," so to
 speak, is not only a major coup for the movie -- it's like being able to
 say that I know Tom personally. Even though, y'know, I don't."
     Harvey Weinstein stated, "MySpace is the perfect partner for this
 innovative and exciting outreach that gives thousands of people the chance
 to have their name in the credits of a feature film. We cannot think of a
 better way to get Kevin's longstanding fan base excited about the sequel."
     ABOUT CLERKS II
     Ten years ago, best friends Dante Hicks (BRIAN O'HALLORAN) and Randal
 Graves (JEFF ANDERSON) were New Jersey mini-mall clerks slacking off
 together in their early 20s. Now, Kevin Smith checks back in to see what
 kind of changes have rocked their lives -- in work, romance and their
 eternally raucous life philosophy. What he discovers is that never before
 have so many, still done so little while having so much fun doing it. Now
 working in the fast-food universe at Mooby's, Dante and Randal have managed
 to maintain, and even hone, their in-your-face attitudes, agile skill with
 vulgarities and unbridled love of screwing with the customers. But they're
 also faced with such shocking new prospects as marriage, leaving Jersey and
 finding real careers.
     Smith pushes his nothing-is-sacred humor right to the edge and then
 takes a leap as Dante and Randal invade the world of Mooby's fast food
 restaurant, where the slogan is "I'm Eating It." Behind the counter, where
 the only other employees are an uber-nerd (TREVOR FERHMAN) and an entirely
 too sexy manager (ROSARIO DAWSON), Dante and Randal are free to offend
 anybody and everybody who, so much as orders fries, in their inimitably
 irreverent way. But, even as riotous debates rage between them over such
 burning matters as George Lucas v. Peter Jackson v. Jesus, change is on the
 horizon. When Dante announces that he's going to leave Jersey forever and
 marry Emma Bunting (JENNIFER SCHWALBACH), Randal plots a going-away party
 so shocking it will draw the police, the fire department and potential
 protests from PETA, while altering their lives forever.
     The Weinstein Company and View Askew Productions present "Clerks II,"
 written and directed by Kevin Smith. Scott Mosier and Smith produced the
 film, with Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and Carla Gardini serving as
 executive producers. The film features cameos by Jason Lee, Ben Affleck,
 Kevin Weisman ("Alias") and the comedians Wanda Sykes and Earthquake. It
 also features the triumphant return of Leonardo, New Jersey's inimitable
 duo Jay (JASON MEWES) and Silent Bob (KEVIN SMITH).
