Paramount took us by surprise earlier in the year when they announced that the previously-rumoured movie would be taking Paranormal Activity 5’s October release date. And things instantly started to look good when the first trailer hit last month.
More recently, the studio released the first poster. And now they’ve released a new UK poster, via Yahoo Movies, which sees Knoxville (and please, forgive the pun) getting trollied, in more than one sense.
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.
The pint-sized Jackson Nicoll (Fun Size) will be starring opposite Knoxville as the young Billy.
Jeff Tremaine is of course behind the camera once more, directing from a script he co-wrote with Knoxville and Spike Jonze.
Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa will be released on October 25th in the UK and US, functioning as a perfect alternative to the Halloween horror fare at the end of next month.
