With the comedy hitting cinemas in the UK tomorrow, and the US at the end of the week, a great new red-band trailer has landed over on Break, giving a highly unsuitable new look at the movie.
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.
Knoxville is of course front and centre as the 86-year-old Irving Zisman, with Jackson Nicoll (Fun Size) starring as the young Billy.
Jeff Tremaine, the Jackass veteran, is naturally behind the camera, directing from a script he co-wrote with Knoxville and Spike Jonze, with plenty of improve to be expected.
Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is released in the UK tomorrow, 23rd October, and will be heading across the Atlantic on Friday, October 25th. In the meantime, here’s the latest trailer, and a final reminder that this is not suitable for work. Enjoy.
