Many were surprised a couple of weeks ago when it was announced a new Jackass movie was on the way, especially as it had already been shot and far enough down the line that Paramount slotted it into an October 25th release date (which has been vacated when they decided to delay Paranormal Activity 5).
Now the trailer for the movie has arrived, showing us that this is slightly different to previous movie. Johnny Knoxville puts of his Irving Zisman old-man make-up for movie, which will be partly improvised and partially scripted. As the trailer shows though, it’s still crammed with Jackass-style madness.
Here’s the synopsis: ’86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companions, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.” This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.
‘Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens.
‘Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.’
