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).
VBS TV has a great 15-minute long behind the scenes documentary on the making of Jackass 3D.
I kinda love the fact that Spike Jonze thinks that Jackass isn’t just entertainment but is really about science — guys doing insane science experiments which test their fear and pain. And it’s also interesting seeing how much work goes into filming these stunts, especially with the additional 3D technology required for this sequel.

There is a lack of interesting movie news today, so I’m posting a second Video of the Day.
What if Hollywood decided to remake Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a horror film? Directed by Human Giant and Crank Yankers writer Eric Appel (who also did the Kevin Bacon reality prank show short BACON’D!, Clothes from the Future and Lex Luthor Needs a Bail Out) comes a horror thriller about a bunch of kids who find the Golden Ticket and win a horrifying trip to a factory of death. Gobstopper stars Christopher Lloyd as Wonka, Martha MacIsaac (Last House on the Left), Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights), Paul Rust (Semi-Pro), Nicky Whelan (Neighbours), Paul Scheer (Human Giant), Wee Man (Jackass) and Little Jon. Watch the fake trailer after the jump. Thanks to /Film reader Dan E for the tip.
