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 »

Johnny Knoxville is Planning a Trip to ‘Action Park’

action park movie

I was never a huge fan of Jackass, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get it. Because I totally get it – there’s something special about performers who are literally willing to put their personal safety on the line for a gag and there’s an invisible cord connecting the Jackass crew to the likes of Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd. They literally suffered for their art, pushing themselves to physical extremes for the sake of a laugh. It’s stupid and insane and immature and it may, somehow, loop back around on itself and become high art.

So the news that Jackass headliner Johnny Knoxville is planning a movie that will involve him getting battered by unsafe theme park rides has me intrigued, mainly because I wonder with morbid curiosity if this will be the project that finally does him in.

Skiptrace Trailer

Back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan became a huge star in the United States. His incredible stunt work caught the attention of Hollywood and action fans alike, and a handful of his movies received a domestic release in theaters, albeit with dubbed dialogue. Shortly thereafter, Chan was starring in Hollywood films like Rush Hour with Chris Tucker, Shanghai Noon with Owen Wilson and even his own starring vehicle, The Tuxedo. Now he’s back in a movie that feels like it got lost in a couch cushion back in 2001.

Skiptrace is a new action comedy from Die Hard 2 and Cliffhanger director Renny Harlin, and it puts Jackie Chan into the lead role alongside an American actor for comedic relief. This time it’s Jackass star Johnny Knoxville starring alongside Jackie Chan, and as you’ll see in the trailer that just debuted, the two couldn’t be a more mismatched pair. Watch the Skiptrace trailer after the jump. 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.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Johnny Knoxville

The actors who play the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Jonathan Liebesman‘s new film won’t, necessarily, lend the voices to those famous turtles. Case in point, Johnny Knoxville (Jackass) has been added to voice group leader Leonardo and Tony Shalhoub (Monk) will voice master Splinter. During filming, Pete Ploszek and Danny Woodburn played the respective roles in performance capture but, apparently, their deals never guaranteed they’d provide the voices. Read more about the new Ninja Turtles Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub below.  Read More »
