The news that Jackass 3D antiqued the competition this past weekend (take that, Helen Mirren!) wasn’t too shocking. However, the news that the film had the biggest opening ever for a September-October release was a surprise. And when you’ve got an opening that big, it’s only natural to want to show your opening off.
Paramount and Johnny Knoxville are way ahead of you. They kept busy while pee-peeing and pooping on one another, by filming enough additional content for another sequel. This extra material was intended for a DVD release, but now Paramount execs are entertaining another theatrical run. Which is fine by me. If we can have a Twilight in theaters every four months, why can’t we have a Jackass? I’ll shoot a full toilet out of a cannon at you if you disagree. (LA Times)
