Johnny Knoxville took to Twitter this afternoon as he unveiled the first trailer for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. You can check that out below our analysis.

 

The recently announced Paramount release is slated to open in time for Halloween business and, if initial Twitter reactions are any indication, it just might prove to be another box office winner for Knoxville and crew. The promise of "real people" and "real reactions" is smart marketing speak as it addresses the fact that similar wannabe candid comedies usually aren't so candid and audiences can see through the veil.

No, this is a spin off no one wants. 

 

Total will be under Jackass 3's OW.

There are enough idiots in the 15-34 male demo to make something that awful $100M domestic easily.

I'm a big Jackass fan, and seriously, do people care about this character? I really don't think so. Plus, without the rest of the crew and the huge 3D marketing the last movie had, this won't get much attention.

I'm sure it will but I get this feeling I might be getting to old for a movie like this.
