Stars of Jackass: The Movie Look Back 15 Years Later

Stars of Jackass: The Movie Look Back 15 Years Later
It's been 15 years since Jackass: The Movie hit theaters and a lot has changed since then. The cast and crew have assembled to look back and celebrate the 15th anniversary while also sharing stories and secrets from the set. When Jackass started as a TV show on MTV, nobody, not even its creators thought that it would last longer than the first 8 episodes because there was nothing like it on TV and there was no precedent. As the show became outrageously popular, more lawyers got involved and kids started to try and replicate the zany stunts that the Jackass crew pulled off, which led to MTV placing restrictions on the show. At the height of the success, the crew decided to call it quits. The cast and crew including Spike Jonze, Jeff Tremaine, Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Chris Pontius, Steve-o, Wee Man, Ehren McGhehey, and Dave England spoke to Vice

1941: A Great Comedy For Slim Pickens Day

On Monday, August 28, 2017, Turner Classic Movies will devote an entire day of their “Summer Under the Stars” series to the late, great Louis Burton Lindley Jr. If that name doesn’t sound familiar, well, then just picture the fella riding the bomb like a buckin’ bronco at the end of Dr. Strangelove…, or the racist taskmaster heading up the railroad gang in Blazing Saddles, or the doomed Sheriff Baker, who gets one of the loveliest, most heartbreaking sendoffs in movie history in Sam Peckinpah’s Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

Lindley joined the rodeo circuit when he was 13 and soon picked up the name that would follow him throughout the length of his professional career, in rodeo and in movies & TV. One of the rodeo vets got a look at the lank newcomer and told him, “Slim pickin’s. That’s all you’re gonna get in this rodeo.

New to Streaming: ‘I Am Not Your Negro,’ ‘Three,’ ‘War on Everyone,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Beauty and the Beast (Bill Condon)

The near-ubiquitous familiarity with the majority of Disney animations make the financial proposition of a live-action remake a no-brainer greenlight. In aiming to appeal to those experiencing these stories for the first time, the generation prior, and the generation that brought that generation to the theater, it can also be as creatively risk-averse as one might imagine.

Did You Know that Jackass Star Steve-o Was a Clown in Real Life?

When most people think of the show Jackass there are generally three characters that always come to mind first: Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, and Steve-o.

On YouTube, Zach Holmes stunts were so over the top that the managed to catch the attention of Steve-o, the daredevil who made a nickname for himself as part of the Jackass crew. Now, Holmes’ antics have caught the eye of another man with ties to the Jackass franchise.

Motley Crue Biopic Finds Home At Netflix

The Hollywood Reporter has come out with an update on the long gestating biopic on the 80's rock band Motley Crue, based on their New York Times Bestselling Book, The Dirt. They state that the project, originally started at Paramount Pictures, has found a new home at Netflix. Jeff Tremaine, director of the Jackass movies, is slated to direct. The band will be producers for the film.

Love them or hate them, Motley Crue have an interesting story to tell. From opening the book with an act that I cannot describe here apart from stating that Tommy Lee would need an umbrella, to details of the time Vince Neil was involved in a car accident that killed the passenger in the car with him, to Tommy Lee's home movies, and the break up and reunion of the band, if the movie finds a way to capture the essence of the book,
