Johnny Knoxville has made a name for himself by subjecting himself to insane stunts that probably no one else but him would perform. Sometimes these daredevil schemes work better as a reality show, and other times, if you can figure out how to weave them into a plot, it can make for an interesting film.
That’s what we could get in Action Point. The film, which is based on a true story, sees Knoxville play the owner of a low-rent amusement park where the rides are not designed with safety in mind. But when a competing amusement park threatens to shut them down, it is up to the Action Point team to draw in more guests by any means necessary. Check out the full trailer below.
You’ve seen the safe for work green band trailer for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, now be sure to check out the not at all safe for work red band trailer, complete with naughty language, prosthetic old man parts, and perhaps some underage drinking. Just another day at the Jackass offices.
The movie stars Johnny Knoxville, reprising his role as a senior citizen who tends to stir the pot a bit, as he’s on a road trip across the country with his young grandson.

A new clip has been released from Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, an upcoming feature in the same vein as Borat starring Johnny Knoxville as troublemaking senior citizen Irving Zisman, a character he previously played in Jackass skits/stunts.
The clip focuses on a scene seen briefly in the movie’s first trailer, in which a storefront kiddie ride malfunctions on Zisman while unknowing strangers nearby look on.
Recently we found out that Paramount Pictures was set to release Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, a spinoff featuring Johnny Knoxville‘s elderly character from the Jackass movies, on October 25, 2013.
Now Paramount has released the first trailer for the movie, which looks to be taking a more elaborate Borat-like route instead of Knoxville just messing with random people…which he will also do, of course.

Paramount Pictures is doing a bit of shuffling of their upcoming release slate. Instead of releasing Paranormal Activity 5 on October 25, 2013—which would have made five in the same amount of years—the studio has instead decided to push the next installment in the found footage horror franchise back to January 3, 2014.
To fill the vacated October 25th spot, Paramount has announced that they will release Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa on that date. The title may not sound familiar at first, but anyone who’s watched the Jackass movies will be familiar with the Bad Grandpa sketches in which Johnny Knoxville is completely transformed into a convincingly realistic old man named Irving, who would set out and cause mischief.
