I had no idea this was even being made, so that makes this trailer’s debut even better than it should be. It’s been quite a few years since the last (and presumed final) Jackass film, so any fan of the series has felt that brunt. After the death of member Ryan Dunn, it was looking like we’d never get anything Jackass again. In steps Johnny Knoxville with his brilliant Bad Grandpa character, taking cues from Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat and Bruno films, taking the character across country, capturing real reactions to set up situations. Based on the Little Miss Sunshine reference in the trailer, COUNT ME IN.
Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa will be released October 25.
