Forget The Expendables. First Trailer for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

Last week Paramount confirmed that the next entry in the Paranormal Activity franchise would miss its habitual Halloween release date, with the slot filled by something up a completely different alley: Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. Amongst all the OAP actioners over the last few years such as The Expendables, Die Hard and Red, this is by far the one we’re most excited about. Whilst there was no news as to whether this would be a compilation of pranks or would actually follow some form of a scripted plot, the very first trailer answers that very question.

From what we can see it seems to follow somewhat in the footsteps of the Borat and Bruno format, with Johnny Knoxville‘s Irving Zisman heading off on a roadtrip with the young, but clearly not innocent, Jackson Nicoll, giving them a great excuse to cause as much mayhem as is humanly possible. Interacting with real people to provoke real reactions, the duo end up causing quite a commotion at the likes of weddings, kids’ talent shows and even funerals.

Commenting on the film, director Jeff Tremaine said:

“We both had reservations only because we had never fleshed the character out and didn’t know if it could sustain for a movie” … “Then we decided to come up with a story, and the story became really important. Yet it still houses these pranks which are shot in the real world with real unsuspecting people.”

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa will be pulling pranks aplenty in UK cinemas this 25 October.

We’ll leave you with the aforementioned trailer. What do you think? Bad taste or a winning equation?
