OK, I don’t know if I’ve shared my disdain for this 3D craze that has been swarming movies recently but I’m not a fan of these gimmicky reasons that make film goers flock to the movie theater…but Jackass in 3D does interest me a whole lot. I’m happy to hear that they are moving ahead with a third Jackass movie; I didn’t care much for the first one, but I loved the second one a lot! And I’m not embarrassed to share that…
Paramount’s Official “Jackass 3D” ReleaseBy Garth Franklin Sunday December 20th 2009 09:27AMThe third installment of “Jackass” from Paramount Pictures and MTV Films will hit theaters on October 15th 2010, this time in 3D.
Johnny Knoxville and the boys will begin shooting in late January with Dickhouse Productionâ€™s Jeff Tremaine at the helm and producing alongside Spike Jonze and Knoxville.
The addition of 3D to the new film will raise the mayhem factor to new heights, promises Knoxville – “We’re going to take the same 3D technology James Cameron used in AVATAR and stick it up Steve O’s butt. We’re taking stupid to a whole new dimension.”â€¨ 2002â€™s â€œJackass: The Movieâ€ earned more than more than $64 million and was heralded as â€œa disgusting, repulsive, grotesque spectacle, but also hilarious and provocative. God help me, thumbs upâ€ by esteemed critic Richard Roeper.
Released in 2006, â€œJackass: Number Twoâ€ earned over $72 million and was heralded by The New York Times as being â€œdebased, infantile and reckless in the extreme, this compendium of body bravado and malfunction makes for some of the most fearless, liberated and cathartic comedy in modern movies.
