Watch the ‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa’ Trailer… Out of Morbid Curiosity, If Nothing Else

We don’t see a whole lot of the Candid camera-style films since Sacha Baron Cohen sunk his teeth into the more traditional narrative game, but the minds behind Jackass are injecting their tastes for calamity into a new film: Bad Grandpa, a movie about an elderly curmudgeon dragging his young grandson across the country in an inscrutable plight to piss off everyone who crosses their path.

Playing his established Grandpa character, Johnny Knoxville returns to his Jackass roots with the new film, more than likely employing the help of his injury-prone pals along the way. Catch the film on Oct. 25.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
