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?"
Patton Oswalt plays a slightly psychotic Boy Scout camp leader in 'Nature Calls,' which is just enough to get us interested. He joins Johnny Knoxville, Rob Riggle, Maura Tierney, and the late Patrice O'Neal in this R-Rated comedy, and this red band NSFW trailer sets the tone for the film's hijinks.
'Jackass 3D' was (another) huge hit in the franchise, so 'Jackass 4' always seemed like something of an inevitability. But part of the fun of 'Jackass 3D' was watching the stunts catch up on the aging cast and there was some speculation, they're retire after completing the trilogy. Not quite. 'Jackass 4' looks like it could be on the way after all...
