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.

Update: Variety just posted another positive review: “[The film is] riveting beyond all rationality, is something like Jackass, except that here the stunts are dangerous only to standards of good taste — which, of course, is precisely the point. …perverse beauty. …Across the board, tech credits are appalling — in a good way.”

Part of the appeal thus far is the bizarre dubiousness resulting from only a handful of stills (like the one above) released online and then followed by a rickety, creepy teaser trailer. Rather than be snagged in another tired viral campaign for a film “found in a mad scientist’s dilapidated laboratory” or some lame Hollywood shit like that, Korine is genuinely a lil’ nuts IRL. And more so in his (word) salad days. So how far into crazy town did the director behind Gummo and the more subdued Mister Lonely go with Humpers? Early reviews from the Toronto International Film Festival seem to say: none more crazy. The title is literal. And we’re a lil’ relieved to hear the movie has a plot.
