Johnny Knoxville's Action Point Trailer Turns Jackass Into a Theme Park

Johnny Knoxville's Action Point Trailer Turns Jackass Into a Theme Park
It's been nearly 8 years since Jackass 3D and now Johnny Knoxville is back to his daredevil roots in the trailer for Action Point, which hits theaters June 1st. Fans of the Jackass franchise got their hopes up about a possibility of a 4th movie when Knoxville posted a picture of himself with Wee-Man and Bam Margera. It was the first time that he and some of the crew had been in the same place in 7 years, since the filming of Jackass 3D. However, there has not been anything mentioned about a proper reunion and 4th installment since then.

For those looking for the same kind of stunts as Jackass, Action Point should quench some of that thirst. The movie has real-life stunts mixed with acting in a real storyline. The trailer begins with Johnny Knoxville in heavy makeup to be an old man again, much like Bad Grandpa, but he's

The Best Documentaries Of 2017

There was a time when documentary filmmaking felt a little bit like the red-headed stepchild of the film industry, and, to be sure, they still tend not to challenge fiction features at the box office unless they’re furiously topical political manifestos like “March of the Penguins,” awe-inspiring testaments to the grandeur of nature like “Jackass 3D” or gross-out slapstick like “Fahrenheit 9/11.” But the rise of streaming services, and the fall of Western democracy, have given non-fiction filmmaking a new lease on life: not only are the incisive and dedicated perspectives of documentarians of all stripes more necessary than ever now to help us make sense of an increasingly senseless world, they also tend to be more available to us than ever before.

7 Things Terra Jolé Reveals in New Book 'Fierce at Four Foot Two': Dwarfism, Dating, DUI and More (Exclusive)

7 Things Terra Jolé Reveals in New Book 'Fierce at Four Foot Two': Dwarfism, Dating, DUI and More (Exclusive)
Do you think you know everything about Little Women: La star Terra Jolé? Well, think again!

It might seem like the reality star shared all the details of her life with the public over the last 15 years – first appearing on MTV’s True Life in 2002 -- but she’s revealing new secrets in her memoir, Fierce at Four Foot Two.

“Surprisingly, I couldn't believe how many stories I had to tell. In fact, we left a lot of stories out,” Jolé shares with Et in an exclusive interview about the book, joking that she thought fans knew everything about her too. “There are tons and tons of stories that I have not shared with anyone.”

While she is used to being very open about her life on television, there’s a big difference with sharing her story in print. “There’s no editing. It's you. It's not like what a producer may interpret as you,” she explains

‘Cardboard Boxer’ Trailer: Thomas Haden Church Struggles To Escape Dark World of Fighting Homeless Men for Pay
Knate Lee, known for producing the Johnny Knoxville-led “Jackass 3D” and “Bad Grandpa,” has stepped behind the camera to direct his first feature film “Cardboard Boxer,” starring Thomas Haden Church.

The drama – which appears to have skipped the festival circuit – centers on Willie (Church), a homeless man who is paid by two rich teens to fight other men for cash and then struggles to escape the dark world he’s gotten himself into. With the help of a new pen-pal and a trusting new friend (Terrence Howard), he hopes to turn his life around.

Written by Lee, “Cardboard Boxer” also co-stars “Narcos’s” Boyd Holbrook, Rhys Wakefield, and musician Macy Gray. Check out the first trailer below.

Paramount Promotes Peter Giannascoli to Co-President of Domestic Marketing

Paramount Pictures has promoted veteran executive Peter Giannascoli to the post of co-president of domestic marketing to lead creative marketing and advertising efforts.

The move comes a month after the studio tapped Google executive Rebecca Mall as co-president of domestic marketing and launched its first-ever brand strategy division and moved Steve Siskind out of the domestic marketing post and into home entertainment. Giannascoli will jointly run the department with Mall.

As part of the executive shuffle, Erik Counter is leaving his post as president of worldwide creative marketing.

Giannascoli will report to Paramount Vice Chairman Rob Moore and oversee all creative marketing efforts including creative content, digital creative and creative advertising. The research teams will also report into him.

“As a longtime member of the Paramount family, Peter is a gifted marketer and a well-respected veteran who has led numerous successful marketing campaigns for our studio,” said Paramount Pictures Chairman & CEO Brad Grey.

NYC Weekend Watch: Alain Resnais, Theo Angelopoulos, ‘Last Tango In Paris’ & More

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Metrograph

“Welcome to Metrograph: A to Z” has a packed weekend with a slate that includes Alain Resnais‘ Je t’aime, je t’aime, Nicholas Ray‘s The Lusty Men, Jackie Brown, and, yes, Jackass 3D.

Baumbach & Paltrow‘s De Palma plays with a Jim McBride feature on Saturday and two De Palma shorts on Sunday.

Box Office: ‘The Martian’ Rockets to $18 Million Opening Day

Box Office: ‘The Martian’ Rockets to $18 Million Opening Day
Ridley Scott’s latest sci-fi endeavor “The Martian” lifted off with $18 million in Friday receipts, suggesting it will finish its opening weekend with a total of over $50 million, according to studio estimates.

The 20th Century Fox release, which stars Matt Damon as a stranded astronaut attempting to survive alone on Mars, bowed in 2,800 locations Thursday night to $2.5 million. The pic, which was made on a budget of $109 million, expanded to 3,826 locations on Friday. Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Jeff Daniels also star in “The Martian,” which is drawing praise for its optimism, something of a novelty in the space-exploration genre.

Based on Andy Weir’s novel, “The Martian” is on track to join the ranks of high-grossing October releases. Current top-dog “Gravity,” which launched on the same weekend in 2013, is the one to beat with its $55.8 million haul, followed by 2011’s “Paranormal Activity 3” with $52.6 million, 2010’s “Jackass 3D” with

Box Office: Matt Damon’s ‘The Martian’ Blasting Off with $50 Million

Box Office: Matt Damon’s ‘The Martian’ Blasting Off with $50 Million
Mars fever is hitting U.S. theaters with Matt Damon’s “The Martian” heading for an opening weekend of about $50 million at 3,286 locations, according to early estimates Friday.

20th Century Fox’s release, which carries the fortuitous coincidence of Nasa’s recent discovery of water on Mars, is dominating moviegoing. Its opening day looks to take in $17 million, including $2.5 million at Thursday night previews — far above the $1.4 million from “Gravity” two years ago and the biggest preview gross since “Straight Outta Compton” pulled in $4.9 million in mid-August.

Ridley Scott’s action-adventure, starring Damon as an astronaut stranded on the Red Planet, is launching amid strong reviews following last month’s premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Rentrak, said that the initial “Martian” performance is impressive on several counts.

“Despite not being a sequel or a franchise film, it has truly captured the imagination of

3D in the 21st Century. 3D is the Moon

  • MUBI
Stereoscopic 3D Video students at Bard CollegeMy favorite class to teach is a seminar on how to make 3D movies. When I lead a course in this subject, I try to encourage students to explore the outer limits of the form. We begin with a description of what 3D movies are, and what they could be.To start, I explain that a 3D movie is nothing more (and nothing less) than two movies that a viewer happens to watch at the same time. A 3D movie's most fundamental property—the thing that makes it different from a regular 2D movie—it that it delivers separate streams of images for a viewer's left and right eyes. Most of the time, the "left eye movie" and the "right eye movie" are very similar to one another. 3D moviemakers usually manipulate the two-eye delivery system to create harmonious stereoscopic illusions, which give the

3D in the 21st Century. "Jackass 3D": The Sad Masters

  • MUBI
"Because of the feeling, fixed by social example, that (Violence) was the only quite correct, the only really decent relief for wounded honor—the only one which did not imply some subtle derogation, some dulling and retracting of the fine edge of pride, some indefinable but intolerable loss of caste and manly face.” —Wilbur Cash, The Mind of the SouthThe first thing we see either in the show or the movies is the fabled warning about the stunts that are about to be performed—which indicates a priestly marking off of sacred space. These are priests or something or other. Only they can do this. This most High Tomfoolery. So there is always that, but what makes Jackass 3D unusually moving, even pathos-ridden, is it’s clear this is a sort of Last Hurrah. This is a movie of wheezing, ancient man-child priests, like Jean-Luc Godard. The gang are clearly

Top 10 Box Office Takeaways: 'Gone Girl' & 'Annabelle Lead Record October Weekend

Top 10 Box Office Takeaways: 'Gone Girl' & 'Annabelle Lead Record October Weekend
Throw in the solid second weekend holdover of "The Equalizer" (down 44%) and the result could wind up the biggest-grossing October weekend ever (unadjusted), even with stay-home holiday Yom Kippur. The Top Ten came in around $137 million, up $26 million from 2013 despite "Gravity"'s big haul.  Neither gross comes close to a record for the month -- over the past decade, "Taken," "Paranormal Activity 2" and "3," "Jackass 3D" and "High School Musical 3" also took in over $40 million, along with the record-setting "Gravity." But both new films and "The Equalizer" look to be certified successes. The year-to-date shortfall is now below 5% for the first time since the end of July, having made up about a third of the drop over the last two-plus months. Keep this up and the year might not look so bad after all. With "The Maze Runner" also holding well, it means there is an...

Top 5 gross-out moments in cinema: Monty Python, Irréversible, Jackass

As obsessed with bodily fluids as it is with social awkwardness, The Inbetweeners, be it on TV or the big screen, determinedly sets out to make viewers laugh until a bit of lung comes out. And with The Inbetweeners 2 now taking the boys, ahem, down under for more sexual shenanigans in Australia, the gross-out levels are set to soar (or plummet, depending on your viewpoint).

But making audiences squint, wince and fight their gag reflexes has always been a part of cinema. Sometimes it's done for belly laughs (Cameron Diaz styling her hair with Ben Stiller's homemade gel in There's Something About Mary), sometimes to elicit feelings of shock or revulsion (Ray Liotta forced to dine on his own brain in Hannibal). And sometimes it does all of the above at once (an army of zombies being cut to dripping ribbons with a lawnmower in Peter Jackson's splatstick horror

Halle Berry Takes The Lead In Kidnap

Kidnapped children has proven to be a popular subgenre, hasn't it? We've already reported today on a Nic Cage thriller where he'll play a desperate father hunting for his disappeared son, and now Halle Berry will star in Kidnap, a thriller about a mother's struggle to find her abducted child.

Kidnap comes from director Luis Prieto (Pusher) and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Erik Howsam.

Kidnap is an action thriller that follows a mother (Berry) who will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son. Not a terribly original premise, but it's hard to judge a movie like this from its logline. Prieto is a good director and Berry usually works well in these types of roles.

Knate Gwaltney penned the script, an odd choice considering his most well known credits are Jackass 3D and Bad Grandpa. It actually makes me more curious to see how this one winds up working out.

The Box Office: Neighbors Moves Into the Top Spot

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wasn’t able to hold the #1 spot for long (dropping 59%), as the R-rated comedy Neighbors moved in to claim the spot. Neighbors ended the weekend with an estimated $51 M, making it the biggest non-animated opening for both Rogen (The Green Hornet with $33.5 M) and Efron, (High School Musical 3 $42 M). Neighbors also claims the third biggest opening for an R-rated-comedy just behind Seth MacFarlane’s Ted and The Hangover Part II and putting ahead of Jackass 3D.

Fyi: The comedy made another $34.4 M overseas (where it’s called “Bad Neighbours”) to bring its global total to $85.5 M. (it cost just $18 M to make). So expect the sequel “New Neighbors” sometimes soon.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 took in $37.2M, so now has grossed $147.9 million domestically but it’s still doing better overseas where it took in another $69.5 M this weekend. It sits now with a $550 M global take.

Bad Grandpa delivers the goods

Australian cinemagoers have really sparked to an exuberantly crude comedy starring Johnny Knoxville as a crotchety 86-year-old man who reluctantly embarks on a road trip with his eight-year-old grandson.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa grabbed $3.4 million last weekend, including Wednesday night previews. That.s a bit below Jackass 3D, which opened with $3.58 million in 2010 when the 3D boom was at its height and well before the format started to lose its lustre.

Jackass 3D finished with $10 million but the latest iteration directed by Jeff Tremaine, Knoxville.s long-time collaborator, may have stronger legs, as evidenced by its $US90 million haul in the Us.

Thor: The Dark World kept drawing fans, pulling in $2.74 million in its third frame (down 38%), bringing its earnings to a lucrative $18.1 million.

Word-of-mouth can.t be good for Ridley Scott.s rambling thriller The Counselor, which plunged by 46% to $680,000, taking its tally to $2.4 million in 11 days.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 rolls to the top spot

Captain Phillips is still afloat, but it's kids of all ages who are calling the UK box-office shots this week

• Review of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2

• Interview with Captain Phillips director Paul Greengrass

The winner

Four years ago, the October half-term holiday was owned by Pixar's Up, which occupied the top spot for three straight weekends, and went on to clock up a hefty £34.6m. Sony animation Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs found its own niche in September that year, without the benefit of kids on holiday, but facing no direct competition for the family audience.

This half-term it's a different story for the sequel to Cloudy. The chief cinema attraction for families is DreamWorks Animation's Turbo, which released on October 18, with previews the weekend before. Sony evidently thought the competitive environment was less formidable this time around, mounting a bid to share the half-term

Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: October 27, 2013

It was age before beauty at this weekend’s box office, as Irving Zisman topped the likes of Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (read our review) took the top spot easily with $32 million. Historically, October has been a successful month for the Jackass franchise, and that trend continues.

Although Bad Grandpa didn’t reach the high mark set by Jackass 3D, it still doubled its $15 million budget. It’s safe to say that even if the Jackass troupe is no more, this won’t be the last we see of the Jackass Presents brand.

In at number 2 is Gravity with $20.3 million. After three consecutive weeks at number 1, this October behemoth was bound to ...

Bad Grandpa Dethrones Gravity at Box Office, The Counselor Bombs

"Bad Grandpa," the latest "Jackass" installment starring Johnny Knoxville, easily took first place at the domestic box office this weekend, grossing $32 million and knocking "Gravity" from the top. "Bad Grandpa" is the first "Jackass" movie with a plot. And even though it performed very well, it still opened behind "Jackass 3D," which hit theaters in 2010 and grossed a whopping $50.4 million. Overseas, "Bad Grandpa" earned an additional $8.1 million for a worldwide gross of $40 million. Since the movie cost only $15 million to make, it's already a hit. The film has a 62% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. "Gravity" had to settle for second place with another $20.3 million, which brought its worldwide total to $364 million. The other wide release of the weekend was Ridley Scott's "The Counselor," starring Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem and Brad Pitt. Despite an amazing cast, the film landed in fourth place with a lousy $8 million. Even

Box Office Report: 'Bad Grandpa' Dethrones 'Gravity'

Box Office Report: 'Bad Grandpa' Dethrones 'Gravity'
Winner Of The Week: Adolescent humor. This is the season of high-minded, Oscar-worthy, dramatic adult fare, which is why it's such a good time for a Jackass movie. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa opened big with an estimated $32.0 million, finally ending the reign of Gravity after three weekends on top. That's far less than the $50.4 million launch of Jackass 3D three years ago, but this movie didn't have 3D surcharges, and it was a departure from the familiar format, with Johnny Knoxville (and not the rest of his crew) getting made
