Just recently we learned that Paramount Pictures was sending Johnny Knoxville in for the Paranormal Activity franchise in a date switch that would see a new Jackass movie hitting theaters in the form of Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. Now the first trailer has arrived that finally shows us what kind of craziness we can expect in October. Knoxville reprises his old man character role of 86 year-old Irving Zisman from the Jackass series, this time on a road trip to take his 8 year-old grandson back to his father. But on the way, they get into the kind of trouble we've come to expect from the Jackass crew. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Jeff Tremaine's Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, direct from Paramount:
Jackass crew member and film franchise director Jeff Tremaine is at the helm of Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, which he co-wrote with Preston Lacy. 86 year-old Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) is on a journey across America with his 8 year-old grandson Billy, introducing the young and impressionable boy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants, funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens. Paramount will release Bad Grandpa on October 25th. Look funny?

As much hate as Jackass gets sometimes, I'm not gonna lie that had some funny moments. It definitely gives off a Borat/SBC vibe.

I love the idea of Jackass stunts/misbehavior combined with a loose story line. Having a boy dance to Cherry Pie at a girl's beauty pageant while throwing dollar bills on him is hilarious. There's social commentary in there somewhere but I'm too busy laughing to care.

I was on the fence until the pageant, jumped in now with both feet.

same here. I hate pageant culture and seeing it being smashed like that made me very happy.

Never was a big fan of the Jackass movies but boy, does this look hilarious!

Well. I love Knoxville, but I thought this was just going to be the tired old Jackass routines, so I wasn't interested. But fucking with people disguised as the old man is goddamn brilliant!

I wasn't expecting much, as some of the Irving Zisman skits in the Jackass movies are just a little too squirm-worthy for me, but I was very pleasantly surprised to see they seem to have threaded the needle pretty well this time, at least in the trailer. They'll get my $15 at least once.

That looks like a good laugh. I wonder if the grandpa nuts will make an appearance.
