If the sudden appearance of a surprisingly stretchy prosthetic penis trapped inside a soda machine at the hands of a horny old widower in Jeff Tremaine’s ‘Bad Grandpa’ doesn’t drive you out of the theater, you’ll likely do just fine with the latest entry from the ‘Jackass’ crew and their ever-shrinking bag of gross-out gags.
After all, Johnny Knoxville’s eponymous “bad grandpa” Irving Zisman starts humping the vending machine within the film’s first five minutes, making it crystal clear what sort of production we’re in for. 'Bad Grandpa' is the latest from the creative team behind ‘Jackass,’ taking one of their favorite character creations on the road for one of the most ill-fated and weirdly amusing road trips in recent cinematic memory.
It's rare that thought would go through your head as you prepare to spend a weekend covering a movie. I mean, interviewing Tommy Lee Jones might feel like getting punched in the balls, but never a movie star actually punching your nuts. Then again there aren't many movies like 'Bad Grandpa.' The film stars Johnny Knoxville and is produced by many of his 'Jackass' cohorts, notorious for their behind-the-scenes nut-punches.
Armed with the knowledge that a potential smack to the groin lurked around every corner, I packed my bags to spend a weekend in Vegas, Grandpa Style. Could I survive a weekend with Johnny Knoxville and Team Jackass?
Although the traditional formula seems to have officially come to an end, the spirit of 'Jackass' lives on in 'Bad Grandpa,' which sees the indestructible Johnny Knoxville creating all kinds of uncomfortable situations and causing himself all kinds of physical harm while buried under several layers of old man prosthetics. The new red band trailer confirms that this movie is exactly what you think it is. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is entirely up to you.
Like they have done previously with the 'Jackass' series of films, Johnny Knoxville confirmed to us this weekend that a 'Bad Grandpa 1.5' is on the way that would be a sequel made up of parts that didn't make it into the original. And? It's going to star two Oscar-nominees.
Johnny Knoxville slaps on the latex once again to play irresponsible senior citizen Irving Zisman in 'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa', coming to theaters this October. A new poster for the raunchy comedy has arrived, as well as an amusing VMA promo featuring Robin Thicke.
After three films of increasingly horrifying (and often hilarious) stunts, the 'Jackass' crew is doing something a little different for their fourth film. Rather than just string together a collection of skits and scenes, 'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa' seems takes a more 'Borat' approach to things, presenting absurd situations and scenes in front of real, unsuspecting people and using all of the footage to serve a barebones narrative. The first trailer for the film has arrived and we'll admit it: we laughed.
Do you enjoy watching old people hurt and/or embarrass themselves in public? First of all, shame on you. Second of all: good news! There's a new 'Jackass' movie coming to theaters this fall, and this one focuses solely on Johnny Knoxville's elderly character, Irving Zisman. Are you prepared for 'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa'?
In his recent autobiography, Arnold Schwarzenegger describes his part in 'The Last Stand' as "a great, great role." He plays Ray Owens, a former LAPD cop who retired to his hometown in Arizona after his partner got crippled in a botched drug raid. Now the local sheriff, he and a few bumbling deputies are all that stands between the Mexican border and a ruthless drug kingpin. "The sheriff knows if he succeeds," Schwarzenegger writes, "it will mean everything to the town. His reputation is on the line. Is he really over the hill or can he do it?"
'The Last Stand' hits theaters in January and we've been loving everything we've seen so far from the newest Arnold Schwarzenegger actioner, but this final theatrical poster proves they saved the best for last.
