The trailer for Jackass Forever is out and if you’re anticipating idiocy and exploding Porta-Potties you will not be disappointed. If you’re anticipating anything else then I don’t know what you think something called “Jackass” could possibly be about–this ain’t no high-class establishment! The fact there isn’t any fart-related humor in the trailer is as haute-couture as it’s getting.
Jackass Forever stars Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Danger Ehren, Preston Lacy, and Wee Man. Notably missing is former cast member Bam Margera who was fired after they found he took Adderall during filming and was required to stay completely sober. He sued them over it.
Beyond that, IndieWire says that it’s been a long time coming for this Jackass film, as it suffered quite a few setbacks since it started filming in March 2020. That’s of course when lockdowns started in America and so they had to shut down. And it’s Jackass, so there were on-set injuries and hospital visits. Johnny and Steve-O got busted up and so did skateboarder, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, who broke his wrist during test filming. Filming finished in December 2020. And now, over a year later, we have the finished product in all its asinine glory.
Here’s the official synopsis, as if any Jackass fan really needed it: “Celebrating the joy of being back together with your best friends and a perfectly executed shot to the dingdong, the original jackass crew return for another round of hilarious, wildly absurd, and often dangerous displays of comedy with a little help from some exciting new cast. Johnny and the team push the envelope even further in Jackass Forever.“
Here’s the trailer:
Time for these old folks to show the youngins of today where real idiocy comes from! The kids of today would not be licking toilets on TikTok, or driving blind on TikTok, or electrocuting themselves on TikTok if it wasn’t for these pioneering messes. These men are trailblazers! Can’t wait for the TikTok crowd to watch this movie so they can start filming themselves letting a snake bite them in the nuts.
