A full official trailer has been released for Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser, the sequel to the 2001 comedy that starred David Spade as the heavily mulleted title character.
The first trailer, a teaser running only 46 seconds, showed far less than this official trailer, which runs over two and a half minutes. The new trailer shows more of the Wizard of Oz-like storyline, in which a now happily married (with children) Joe Dirt gets whisked off by a twister and transported back in time to 1965. Now you want to see a Wizard of Oz remake where Dorothy gets sent to 1965, admit it.

Welcome back to another edition of Digital Wire Blu-ray Releases. This week, we have the news on several upcoming Blu-ray and DVD debuts, including two recent action-thrillers starring Sean Penn and Liam Neeson and the high-definition debut of an early 21st century cult classic comedy.
Below you’ll find info on several future home video releases complete with technical specs, release dates, and links to pre-order at Amazon, as well as a list of titles coming out this week.
The first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated by some, not so anticipated by others sequel to David Spade‘s 2001 comedy Joe Dirt has been released online.
The movie, officially titled Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser, will be released on Sony’s free movie and TV show streaming service Crackle sometime this summer. In May of 2014 Spade was talking about trying to make the movie and getting actors from the first movie to return, but that they were aiming to release on Crackle and that meant the budget would be far lower. These budget cuts are apparent in the first teaser, but it still looks like it could be fun for fans of the original.

Joe Dirt 2 is full steam ahead, and star David Spade has posted an image of himself back in full Joe Dirt costume to prove it.
It was back in early May that Spade was doing an AMA on Reddit, where he was asked multiple questions regarding a Dirt sequel. At the time it was being developed, with the possibility of becoming the first sequel to a major motion picture to premiere digitally on the free streaming service Crackle, which is owned by Joe Dirt studio Sony. This was later confirmed, and it was all systems go.

It’s safe to say that David Spade‘s 2001 comedy Joe Dirt is not a “good” movie. But that’s never stopped a movie from developing a faithful fan following after its release, usually on home video, and Spade’s simpleton redneck character certainly has one.
The movie made almost $31 million worldwide on a $17.7 million budget, so, paired with said home video success and faithful fan following, it should come as no surprise that a Joe Dirt 2 is being worked on. Doing an AMA on Reddit, Spade was asked about the potential sequel and explained where things stood. He also revealed that, if the movie is made, it could actually be free-to-watch from the start.
