The official trailer for Jackass Forever, starring Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Jason 'Wee Man' Acuña, Chris Pontius and a bevy of fresh faces, is finally here. And, it's actually a little emotional.
A fourth Jackass film was confirmed two years ago, after Knoxville continued to conceive of a "tonne" of ideas for the next outing into pain and pranks. However, owing to the upheaval of the entertainment industry as a result of the pandemic, the cast and crew were prevented from getting the show on the road for months and months. So, this trailer for Jackass Forever - which begins with a selection of black and white clips of capers gone by - does tug on the heartstrings slightly. As much as is possible when the video in question is of a man yowling in agony as an alligator bites his nipple while Johnny Cash croons the lyrics to We'll Meet Again.
Check out the trailer to the upcoming movie below, with some of the strangest stunts you'll ever see performed by some of the strangest people on the planet.
Of course, Jackass Forever is Johnny Knoxville's final foray in his career as an unprofessional stuntman. Speaking to GQ, he reflected on how far he's come since his time on MTV and the toll it placed on his body. "It all happened so fast-I don't know how," said Knoxville. "We were on the air, and ratings exploded, and I'm on the cover of Rolling Stone. It just happened in an instant." Steve-O also credited Knoxville's courage to the way that viewers simply could not tear their eyes from the show and the stratospheric success that followed from that fascination.
"There's nobody else on the cast who's ever going to roll the dice with their life like that," said his collaborator. "F*ck no. It's so counterintuitive... You've got your main guy not only not having a stunt double, not only doing his own stuff, but putting himself in the most reckless jeopardy that you can. It's just so f*cking backwards, you know?"
Indeed, the moment where Knoxville is gored by a bull in Jackass Forever led to his hospitalisation with a broken rib, broken wrist, concussion and haemorrhage on his brain. In the movie, he's been fired out a giant cannon wearing a winged suit (not a wingsuit, mind), catapulted into a ceiling and sent flying on a treadmill while dressed in a marching band costume. And, cameos from Eric André and Machine Gun Kelly ensure that you'll never know what's coming next when Jackass Forever comes to cinemas on October 22nd, 2021.
