Jackass 4

It’s been eight years since the Jackass crew assembled for their third big screen outing featuring an assembly of insane, vulgar and dangerous stunts. Following the debut of Jackass 3D in 2010, they followed it up with a straight-to-DVD round-up of footage that didn’t make the cut and called it Jackass 3.5. Now that Action Point bombed hard at the box office, it sounds like there’s a chance Johnny Knoxville might go back to the well and get the old gang together for some new shenanigans. Read More »

Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa .5 trailer

To date, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is the only Jackass movie with a plotline, and the only one to be nominated for an Oscar. But one way it doesn’t differ from the other Jackass movies is the amount of footage shot for it.

Like Jackasses 2 and 3, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa had enough leftovers for a not-quite-sequel, dubbed Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5. Featuring Oscar nominee Catherine Keener and Oscar winner Spike Jonze, the new film arrives in just a couple of weeks. Today, we have the first Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 trailer. Watch it after the jump.

‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa’ Red-Band Trailer

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 »

‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa’ Coming This Fall

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 »
