So Kevin Smith is best known for a bunch of Indie movies that most normal people have never seen. His next movie to come out stars his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith (yeah, she’s named after that DC Comics character Margot Robbie is playing. That’s how nerdy Kevin Smith is) and her best friend Lily-Rose Depp (yes. Johnny Depp’s daughter) is a bit better known because of the absolute star power of the latter girl and our world’s love of raunchy millenial humor. Still, for the most part, most people wouldn’t consider Kevin Smith a “household name” and that’s exactly what he makes fun of in IMDb’s promo for Smith hosting their San Diego Comic-Con news stuff.
In the video Smith calls his famous friends and only, like, half of them (we never actually see the people he’s talking to, he just name drops) actually know who he is. The entire thing is pretty funny if only because Smith is a pretty funny guy and it’s obvious he’s not actually talking to them, but it also super gets you pumped for the interviews IMDb will be posting hella soon from the biggest Comic-Con in the world.
Also Kevin Smith will be conducting interviews on the IMDb yacht. Here’s a press release that was sent to us:
IMDb, the world’s most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content, today announced that writer/director/podcaster Kevin Smith will host original celebrity video interviews and convention coverage aboard The IMDb Yacht throughout San Diego Comic-Con® International 2016.

Personally, I’m looking forward to all of the DC Comics and Marvel trailers. It’s gonna be epic. What do you guys think? Is Comic-Con too nerd-tastic for you or are you mega-psyched for all the spoilers that are about to be coming out? Comment below!
