The Jackass segments featuring Johnny Knoxville made up to look like a much older man were always fun, but can that concept work during the course of an entire film? We’ll find out in a few days when Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa opens in theaters.
In the meantime you can get another look at the film via this red-band trailer, which is very definitely not safe for work thanks to the presence of, among other things, a very stretchy prosthetic penis. If that seems tame, there’s also very underage drinking, some awkward strip club action, and serious car-on-penguin violence. Read More »

We were surprised just a couple weeks ago to hear not only that there would be a new Jackass film, but that is already finished and ready to go.
Now here’s the first trailer for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, which puts Johnny Knoxville in his Irving Zisman old-man makeup for a film that is partially improvised in the classic Jackass mold, and partially scripted. Irving and a kid take a cross-country trip, and what transpires is, well, pretty much exactly what you’d expect. Check out a trailer below. Read More »

Briefly: Earlier this week, we learned that Paranormal Activity 5 had been shifted from fall 2013 to January 2014. Now we know what’ll take its place.
The studio has announced that Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa will take over Paranormal’s old slot on October 25. The $15 million 2D film takes a Borat-like format, following an old man getting up to no good. Fans of the franchise will recognize Bad Grandpa from previous skits.
The new date follows the same pattern established by the three previous Jackass movies, each of which opened in the fall. The most recent, Jackass 3-D, was particularly successful; its $50 million domestic opening is the second-best October performance of all time. [Variety]
After Jackass 3D grossed over $117 million in 2010, including the number two opening weekend in Fall history, the only things standing between a sequel and the big screen were the aging bodies of its stars. Well it seems like Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Chris Pontius, Steve-O and the gang are ready to go.
Though an official announcment has yet to be made, earlier this week Paramount registered several domains for a film that would be called Jackass 4: Bad Grandpa. Read more after the jump. Read More »
Mere days before the mega-hit Jackass 3D (without the D) hits DVD and Blu-ray, Paramount is taking steps to make sure they remain in the Jackass business. First up, they’ve purchased a pitch called First Man which will star Johnny Knoxville as a rowdy guy whose wife is elected President of the United States. Second, they’re revamping a previously purchased project called Mustache Riders that follows three crooks who search for buried treasure with a “grizzled old outlaw.” The three crooks would be played by Knoxville, Bam Margera and Ryan Dunn while the outlaw would be Willie Nelson. You can’t make this stuff up. Read more about both films after the break. Read More »

For the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, Jackass stars have filmed four parodies of scenes from the four 2010 Best Picture nominees. MTV has released a video of the stunt stars reenacting scenes from David Fincher’s The Social Network. No word on what the other film parodies will be. The best picture nominees also include: 127 Hours, Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The King’s Speech, The Town, Toy Story 3, True Grit, and Winter’s Bone. After the jump you can watch a clip from filming which includes Johnny Knoxville playing Mark Zuckerberg, who is being grilled by an interrogator (played by Bam Margera) and the Winkelvoss twins (played by Wee-man and Preston Lacy).

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Jackass 3-D rocked box office expectations this past weekend by nearly equaling the total grosses of each of the past two Jackass films within three days of its release, and in typical Hollywood fashion, Paramount is looking at other means to capitalize on their investment. Jackass figurehead Johnny Knoxville already announced plans of a Jackass 3.5 release, which was set to hit the web and DVD a month or so after Jackass 3-D‘s theatrical run, but now it looks as though Paramount wants to take the left-over footage from the gang’s 3-D outing and repackage it for a theatrical release all its own.
