Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa – It’s Real!

When Paramount announced a few weeks back that a film was being made based on the Johnny Knoxville grandpa skit in the Jackass series, the question everyone was asking was, could the gag last for a full feature-length film? While that’s still to be seen, I can say that after a two and half-minute trailer, I can’t wait to see more. Borat-esque in its format, the film follows Irving Zisman, who is the grandpa played by Johnny Knoxville, on a cross-country trip through what looks to be a partially scripted, but mostly hidden camera type film. Directed by Jeff Tremaine (Jackass Trilogy), if you liked the previous iterations in the franchise, I think you’ll like it here, check out the trailer.

I gotta say, besides for the ending that is a hidden cam take on the classic Little Miss Sunshine scene, I think this could be a guilty pleasure to most. The kid, played by Jackson Nicholl, looks to fit in perfectly with Knoxville’s shenanigans, and is reminiscent of what Andy Milonakis used to do. Again, the ending scene seemed really scripted, and since it’s been done, I don’t find it funny, but the rest looked pretty damn hilarious. Hopefully, the latter is more telling of the actual film.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is due out October 25, which could be good counter programming to Ridley Scott’s dark thriller The Counselor, releasing on the same day. Check out the trailer for that right here.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Last Stand: New Trailer and Interviews

Back in August we talked about Arnold’s big 2013 comeback, starting with The Last Stand – out this Friday. It’s been since 2003 since Arnold’s last lead role in the epically disappointing Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. Now while I imagine this new one will be more T3 than T2, I still plan to visit the theater this weekend. It is Schwarzenegger after all. The basic idea is that Sheriff Arnold is too old and the FBI is too slow, and the bad guys are super fast and good. Here is the 2nd trailer for it…

He’s Back! Arnold Schwarzenegger in ‘Last Stand’

Wow…has it really been 9 years since his last leading role in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines – oh right, yeah that’s whySeriously I think I speak for all of us when I say he needs to come back and kick ass. This new acting chapter should be fun to see, and we know there is more of him to come in the next few years (please be good). Will he be the same action icon with one liners or something more serious? I would like to see something more serious, but I also don’t want him to lose his personality (Batman and Robin was too far). The picture below shows the main characters in his latest film – Last Stand. This is director Kim Ji-Woon‘s first American film.
