Jackass Forever: Trailer Talk

Jackass Forever: Trailer Talk

Since cinemas have reopened, and film productions have resumed, I have decided to return to my previous weekly feature Trailer Talk. These were short opinion pieces on a newly released film or TV trailer…and what better way to re-introduce this feature than to return to the Jackass’ franchise for its fourth instalment!

‘Jackass Forever’ sees Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O and the Jackass crew return a decade later, to try out even more stunts, pranks and endure more pain!

When it comes to Jackass, what you see is what you get. I’ve liked the franchise ever since I was a teenager; it’s the visual representation of the phrase ‘humour can come from the despair of others’ and it seems to become more and more extreme with each entry. And, with this being around a decade later, it’s also great to see the crazy crew back. 

As expected, there’s more stunts, pranks and injuries onscreen, as well as the occasional guests returning. This time that includes TV host and comedian Eric Andre and musician Machine Gun Kelly. The stunts also feel like an extension of previous ones; Machine Gun Kelly’s stunt involves a giant foam hand, which looks similar to the one in ‘Jackass 3D’, and the trailer opens with someone being fired out of a cannon, which was also seen in ‘Jackass The Movie: Number Two’. 

Either way, it’s great to see the crew back for more mayhem, especially after eleven years. And, despite the gap in time, it feels like it’s only been a few weeks since the last entry, due to their close friendship and charm. Overall, welcome back!  

‘Jackass Forever’ crashes into cinemas October 22nd 2021.
