There are only a handful of actors who've been able to perform their own stunts for most of their career. And there's only one group of jackasses that have made it their mission to do the most brutal and disgusting stunts that are purposely designed to fail for all of their career. These lunatics have been putting their bodies through the ringer for more than 20 years. So, we were shocked to hear the announcement that the gang would be getting back together again for another one. And lucky for everyone but them, Paramount dropped the first trailer today for their new film "Jackass Forever." So, let's break down the debauchery.
"Jackass Forever": Trailer Breakdown
Most of the original insane crew has returned for this new adventure including Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, and Wee Man just to name a few. They've also added some new members to the crew and brought in some celebrity guests to join in on the fun. Though we're not sure if that's what we would call it. For instance, we see one stunt where artist Machine Gun Kelly is getting slapped off a stationary bike stand by a big hand into a pool. And he couldn't look happier doing it. But setting all the guests aside, the real action is with the veterans of this dangerously hilarious game. As is expected from Knoxville in every "Jackass" film, we can confirm that he will get hit and flipped by a bull.
You'd think after so many years of pain and concussions he'd finally decide to cut this bit out from the film, but he's a man of the people. Steve-O's advice on the matter, "Concussions aren't great. But as long as you have them before you're 50, it's cool. And Knoxville is 49. So, we're good." We'd say that this is also great news for another celebrity guest in the film, comedian Eric Andre, since he basically gets knocked out while trying to get food on his lunch break.
A Girl Is Joining the Chaos
Something else worth mentioning is now there's a girl doing stunts in the flick. Have you ever used a taser on your own tongue? Neither have we. But this new chick seems to do so without hesitation. When we think about this franchise, it's honestly a miracle that these guys can still perform stunts at their age. Well, maybe miracle isn't exactly the right word, but you get the gist. And if all of this still isn't enough, just wait until the last stunt in the trailer with Danger Ehren. We still don't understand how this guy draws the short straw in every film.
