Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for director Jeff Tremaine’s comedy Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. The film finds Johnny Knoxville reprising his 85-year-old Irving Zisman character from the Jackass movies, but this time he has his 8-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll) in tow. In a style akin to Borat, the pic blends Jackass-style pranks with a narrative involving Zisman and Billy, and based on this trailer the results look to be incredibly juvenile and really, really funny. I’m still uncertain as to whether the Bad Grandpa sketch can sustain an entire movie, but the gag at the end of this trailer involving Nicoll’s character had me laughing incredibly hard.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa opens on October 25th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa:
86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companions, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa”. This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicholl) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.
Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens.
Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.
