The Jackass crew have suffered their first casualty and miraculously it wasn’t Steve-O. Ryan Dunn and at unknown passenger died early this morning in Pennsylvania after his Porsche crashed following a night of drinking.

The likable prankster Dunn is best known for shoving a matchbox car up his rectum before receiving an X-ray in the first Jackass movie and for his appearances on several MTV shows including “Viva La Bam.” Hours before the accident, Dunn posted a picture of he and friends tying one on at the bar. It’s believed that he was drunk at the time of the accident and was absolutely not goaded by Johnny Knoxville to wear a blindfold while driving.

If this is true, it sucks to see someone lose their life in a way that could have been so easily prevented. And it really sucks to see them take somebody else with them. (TMZ)

When Jackass 3D became the surprise hit of the fall, it was a no-brainer that we needed to see these guys hit one another in the balls some more. Luckily, they had additional footage in the can that could be used to milk more money out of the franchise.

An early plan was to release this new material as a second 3D film. That went away in favor of a DVD-only release. But that plan won’t earn enough money, so the new plan is to release the extras online for a price. The clips will begin rolling out in March, and then will also be available for purchase online as a feature length film. After that, it’s likely it will get a DVD release. And then you can get the Director’s Cut. And then the Producer’s Cut. And about a year after that, you can own a copy that was shoved up Steve-O‘s butt.

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)

There seem to be two schools of thought on Jackass. Of course there’s the one that deplores it and condemns it. Then there’s the one that exaggerates how much they like it and respects it ironically. I want to start a third school, an actual exploration of the artistic accomplishments of the Jackass franchise. It may have started out as just a bunch of guys acting stupid, but when you create a genre and then excel at it, that’s art. Cinema is first and foremost about entertainment, and Jackass is the purest form of entertainment.

I considered Jackass: Number Two the best movie of 2006. Its creativity and execution of stunts was masterful. The sheer task of pulling one over on people who’ve been doing it for years was a major hurdle to overcome. The guys played to the camera like professionals. There were recurring themes and motifs edited together with music in a profoundly effective way. Not a single stunt was a dud.

Jackass 3D is not better than Jackass: Number Two but it is the next solid entry of a crew that has perfected their art. A bit like The High Five shows how advanced the jackasses have gotten. Wee Man and Johnny Knoxville have set up a spring loaded hand in a hallway and trick other teammates into crossing its path. Ryan Dunn appreciates how well Wee Man set him up for it. Nobody thought Danger Ehren would fall for it, but the layer they add to his setup raises the stakes for the bit. So then the third slap has to add something else, and now you’ve got a layered joke.

The air of professionalism seeps through when you see everybody debrief after a stunt. They may want to be stupid, but after 10 years of performing even stupidity has standards and a certain visual is required to make the final cut. The fact that they’re analyzing a stunt that was stupid to begin with is a meta level that should be appreciated, not dismissed.

Some of the stunts actually create beautiful 3D visuals. In Bungee Boogie different jackasses slingshot themselves off a ramp. Whether riding skateboards, skates or other wheels, they fly through the air in aerial slow motion. As an addition, Preston Lacy sees an opening for a gag and he fills it. That’s another way these professionals build on the entertaining art they’re creating.

The editing continues to reveal the breadth of a setup at the exact moment when it’s funniest. With a jet engine in the shot, everyone finds something to do for a wind gag. This segment ranges from stunt to art because someone could take a physical risk, or they could just throw something ironic into the wind. Poop jokes also require more elaborate construction that should be appreciated on an intellectual level as well as a visceral one.

They still set up reactionary performance art bits, creating a scene in public. Here too, they start with a premise that’s already funny, then add the next level and then the next. Like a “Simpsons” joke, any one thing would be funny but the fact that there are three or four jokes elevates the entire premise. For one bit, they have a dummy cameraman quit the shot, but that’s just part of selling the reality of the danger they’ve invented. Experts.

It’s not as much in your face as you might expect. It’s just really good footage and some of it pops out in 3D. They let a few more duds slip through the mix this time and the latter half of Jackass 3D is less inspired. It’s still a work of art and if you don’t believe me, I took five pages of notes to come to this conclusion.

‘Jackass 3D’s Dumbest Injuries, Most Brilliant Stunts http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackass-3ds-dumbest-injuries-most-brilliant-stunts/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackass-3ds-dumbest-injuries-most-brilliant-stunts/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 You may be excited to see what crazy new stunts they try in Jackass 3D but let’s be honest. What you really want to know is who got hurt the worst. And who got hurt the worst doing the stupidest thing. It’s a toss-up, but seeing Bam Margera take a taser on the head seemed the most life threatening. It’s one thing on your stomach or side, but is your skull designed to withstand electro-shock? “I got tasered everywhere and it hurts so bad that I was still angry for the rest of the day about it,” Margera said. “It’s just one of those annoying kind of pains, like a stun gun 40 times, it makes you mad and I was just f*cking mad all day about it. I also broke my clavicle that day falling. I’m telling you that that probably sucked the worst out of this movie for me, except for the snakes.” More after the jump...

You may be excited to see what crazy new stunts they try in Jackass 3D but let’s be honest. What you really want to know is who got hurt the worst. And who got hurt the worst doing the stupidest thing. It’s a toss-up, but seeing Bam Margera take a taser on the head seemed the most life threatening. It’s one thing on your stomach or side, but is your skull designed to withstand electro-shock?

“I got tasered everywhere and it hurts so bad that I was still angry for the rest of the day about it,” Margera said. “It’s just one of those annoying kind of pains, like a stun gun 40 times, it makes you mad and I was just f*cking mad all day about it. I also broke my clavicle that day falling. I’m telling you that that probably sucked the worst out of this movie for me, except for the snakes.”

More after the jump…

Johnny Knoxville took a headshot from a bull. Again. He should expect that after so many bull stunts. “The bull, I got a pretty bad concussion on,” Knoxville said. “I got lucky on that one, because I landed on the back of my neck. Thank God the bull kicked me in the head at the last second and altered my course just a little, and I’m sitting here today, talking.”

Danger Ehren lost his tooth again doing another stunt, and now suffers chronic back pain from another one. “I broke my back and blew out my knee and ripped my tooth out,” Ehren said. “In the shopping cart going down the snow, I flew over the pond that was way too short and obvious. I’m still recovering. You can’t really fix a back unless you have surgery. You just have to deal with it so I go to the chiropractor and massage guy three times a week. I have bone growing out of my gums right now. Every once in a while, every other week I’ll feel it up there. It was pretty sensitive for about three weeks and then it just kind of went numb. They’ve already put the implant in.”

Actually, one of the guest stars suffered the worst. That’s why you should leave Jackass to the pros. “Loomis got the worst,” director Jeff Tremaine said. “He’s a guy that’s around with us all the time. He’s got the funny little beard. He weighs probably 68 pounds soaking wet. He wanted to jump behind the jet engine. We had that fighter jet and he jumped off a trampoline into it holding an umbrella and it just slammed him to the ground and it broke his collar bone pretty bad and it broke his hand. It screwed up his hand so he had to get surgery on his hand and his collar bone and it’s just been really slow to heal. He probably got it the worst unless microbiology takes a toll on Steve-O which we’ll find out later.”

Margera expect injuries though. “The way that I look at it is, when we film for 8 months straight for a new Jackass movie, I know that I’m going to wind up with at least 2 broken bones,” Margera said. “I don’t know when it’s gong to happen, but you can’t contemplate how you’re going to fall and what’s going to happen. It’s easier to just get up there and just do it.”

By now, the gang have been coming up with crazy ideas for 10 years. The promise of 3D actually fueled their creativity. Stunts like helicockter (a remote controlled helicopter attached to Chris Pontius’ penis by string) were inspired by technology.

“It only enhanced the idea process because now 3D can write jokes,” Tremaine said. “That idea was strictly for 3D. It’s not something we would probably have shot 2D but the rule was it had to be funny. It had to be a funny Jackass idea. 3D is just frosting on the cake. It has to be funny on TV for us to shoot it but we did definitely shoot some things that were just because it’s in 3D, some things to be so stupid with the technology.”

Experience has motivated deeper levels of stupidity too. It takes more to make Knoxville laugh today than it did 10 years ago, so he has to be more creative. “We end up one-upping ourselves,” Knoxville said. “It takes a little more to make us laugh than it did, maybe five, six years ago, because, okay, we’ve been there, done that, so what’s next? We don’t think going into this movie, ‘We have to top this.’ We just have to be funny. It’s such a competition to get footage, like if Bam gets something great, then it’s like, well, we all have to get something great.”

It turns out Margera is a big instigator of new ideas. “I’m on a lot of airplanes, so I just sip on red wine thinking of stupid ideas, and when I think of it, I wanna make it happen,” Margera said. “I’ll be like, okay, Mike Tyson bit off Evander Holyfield’s ear in a boxing match. Maybe I can get Mike Tyson to bite off my ear. Then Paramount has to come, and like, ‘You really willing to do that?’ I’m like, hell yeah, you know the street cred I’ll have from a missing ear? And they say, ‘How did that happen?’ And I say, ‘Mike Tyson.’”

Since we haven’t seen that one yet, I guess Tyson turned them down. It was such a good PR move the first time. “Well, we didn’t consider that,” Knoxville said.

There is a procedure for deciding which stunts to film. It sounds kind of official. “The cast and crew, we just all come up with ideas,” Knoxville said. “Sometimes they’re just crude pictures drawn on a napkin, and sometimes we’ll get together and pitch ideas. Bam likes to fax hilarious pictures, that’s how he submits most ideas is through pictures, and they’re really funny. They all come to the office, and we compile them, and then we’ll send them to Paramount, just to go through all the legal stuff. Paramount leaves us alone, so we will vet the ideas. We decide what to shoot or not.”

10 years later, there are still more ideas than there are hours to film them all, so Jackass 4 is in no danger. “It’s a mixture of everybody,” Margera said. “If they come up with an idea, they submit it to Paramount, then we have a stack of ideas this high, and people look at it and figure out what they would like to do. Sometimes, if it’s involving a bull, it’ll be [Knoxville], because it definitely won’t be me. Most of the ideas are two pages long, really descriptive, and then it’ll be one page that is one sentence that says, ‘Sh*t shoe. Find a shoe, and then sh*t in it.”

Sh*t Shoe is still on the table for future Jackass movies.

You know a Jackass movie is going to have a lot of male nudity. They had it on the old MTV show but they just blurred it out with a mosaic. The movies can show some nudity with the old MPAA rule that a flaccid penis is rated R, but a boner makes it NC-17. Now you’ll see every dimension of the naked penises in Jackass 3D.

“We didn’t think about the rating obviously,” director Jeff Tremaine said. “It’s funny because we don’t deal with the MPAA directly. There’s a middle man at Paramount. So there’s this sort of negotiator between us and the MPAA when it comes time to turn in the final cut. We have to get an R rating but they don’t want to put it in writing what it would take to get it through.”

One segment that went back and forth was Chris Pontius swinging his penis like a baseball bat, hitting a ping pong ball at Bam Margera. “So we’re turning in this long slow motion [shot of] hitting a ping pong ball with his dick. We get the note, ‘They feel like it’s still too much penis.’ All right, let me figure it out. We go back and try to speed it up a little bit. Nahhh. We ended up with the solution of the black bar that just can’t quite keep up with the penis. We’ll find a way to get it on how we want it.”

As the token naked man, Pontius didn’t want to see his schlong hit the cutting room floor. “I was so worried about that because it would be such a shame to throw away a bit because of that,” Pontius said. “I went up to Jeff the first week. I was like, ‘Jeff, I don’t have any problem with being naked but what if we film all this stuff, should we put a little cloth or something over my wiener? What if we film all this stuff and then they say we can’t show your wiener?’ Jeff assured me that it was cool, that things had changed now.”

Directors of artistic male nudity take note. You can always find a way to get your nudity past the MPAA for an R rating. “I’m tenacious and no is not a good answer to give me,” Tremaine said. “I can handle certain things but just a flat no, there’s always a way. We’ll find a way around everything. Especially from the legal end of things, the easiest thing for a big corporation or a lawyer to say is no. They’d rather just cover their asses and just say no and I’m like, ‘Well, why not? Why not?’ You find out the no is just this little piece you’ve got to take out of it. You can show a lot of it so no’s not a good answer for me. We’ll find a way. We’re tenacious about it. It almost inspired me when someone says no. F*** that, we’re going to find a way to get this dick on TV.”

The only penis stunts that got cut from Jackass 3D were cut for creative reasons. You’ll see Pontius with a wood condom and a woodpecker on DVD. “It’ll be in [the] 3.5 [release] because it didn’t beat out some of the other wiener skits,” Pontius said. “He pecked through this balsa wood sheath they had me put my wiener in. He easily got through it. A woodpecker sees wood, he’s like aaaaahhhh. But right through to the pee hole.”

Jackass 3D opens Friday.

I’ll climb up there.’ I should’ve known something’s up. Even Steve-O at his worst, I don't think you were ever wasted during a stunt. The guys are never wasted during the stunt.

You might think anything goes with Jackass, but there’s actually a complex system in place to ensure the most awesome Jackassery happens safely. Number one rule: You must be sober to dive into poo.

“It’s been a rule forever,” director Jeff Tremaine said. “You don’t do stunts if you’ve been partying that day. But right after… You can do in hung over but if I know someone’s been drinking or doing something else, then they don’t shoot that day. I might find out later that Preston did some Xanax the day he did the King Kong bit. He was terrified of heights one day and the next day, ‘Oh, no problem. I’ll climb up there.’ I should’ve known something’s up. Even Steve-O at his worst, I don’t think you were ever wasted during a stunt. The guys are never wasted during the stunt. You might get wasted right after. The guys watching it might get wasted but even buzzed.”

More insider info after the jump…

Steve-O is two years sober now. That actually means he’s more available for crazy Jackass bits in Jackass 3D. “There were some times when I wasn’t allowed to shoot,” Steve-O said. “Like the branding thing [in Jackass: The Movie], there were times where I was up for something but I was intoxicated so I wasn’t allowed. Nobody wants to see us really wasted I don’t think.”

There are also limits to how much a single performer is allowed to film. “To stop shooting, they lured me to the office for one reason,” Johnny Knoxville said. “Then they all got me into a big room, like ‘We’re out of time. The editors are bottlenecked with footage. You have to stop.’ It’s just fun, man, and I do get obsessed with constantly all day long thinking of ideas, but that’s just how it is.”

The rules get complicated when pranks are involved. Bam Margera or Danger Ehren might be working on a stunt, but Johnny Knoxville or Wee Man could be planning a prank on them. “It’s tense on the set because you can expect something horrible is going to happen to you,” Steve-O said. “After it does, you’re generally pretty happy that it did but you’re looking over your shoulder the whole time. I remember the tensity [sic] on the set just reached a fever pitch on the day that I got my nose broken.”

Some of the guys have learned how to make themselves prank proof. Chris Pontius doesn’t get messed with that much. “That was too tense where it was hard to actually do the work that we needed to do,” Pontius said. “Usually if you’re going to be someone that gets involved in these side pranks, if you don’t get involved in it it’s not going to really happen to you that much really. It will a little bit. A friend told me like the Hell’s Angels when they move into some neighborhood and set up a clubhouse, I asked, ‘Do they ever have to deal with any trouble?’ He’s like, ‘No, they set examples years ago.’ So whenever anyone ever did anything unnecessary back to me, like Mike Ellis did something very unsportsman-like to me, I do something 10 times worse in front of everyone. It makes you not have to worry about it as much because they know.”

When it comes to writing a bit, individuals contribute ideas but also take hints from the crew, camera, etc.  Once everything is filmed though, it’s up to the whole gang. Wee Man explained it takes a unanimous decision to choose the final array of stunts for the film.

“We all kind of decide once something gets filmed,” Wee Man said. “Even if we go and spend a little money to make something big and awesome, we could film something on the side of it just pranking each other that turns out way better. Then in the long run it depends on once we’re putting the movie together, what makes all of us laugh and we think is super awesome. So it’s not just one person going oh, cut that, put that, cut. It’s everybody’s input on it.”

The criteria is simple, said Preston Lacy. “The laugh meter is really what does it,” Lacy said. “If everybody’s laughing, it’s gonna make it.”

It does seem like when things get really dangerous, if someone says “Stop,” the rest of the crew respects that. At least on camera, we see the crew pause to let the performer back off. Maybe it’s tricky editing, because the gang says they don’t even trust the group safe word.

“[Say] ‘Oklahoma’ and that’ll buy you about 30 seconds,” Lacy said. “’Oklahoma,’ Trip Taylor will back them off of you for maybe a minute, but then it’s back on.”

Even if he goes to the hospital, Ryan Dunn is suspicious of anyone who examines him. They might be a ringer for another prank. “It usually doesn’t end there either,” Dunn said. “I don’t trust a doctor, I don’t trust anybody. Once those wheels start turning it’s tough to stop that train.”

It was so creative with stunts, well performed, artistically composed and put together. It has motifs and plays with its own format. They’ve taken it to the next level of what entertainment should be and I fully expect Jackass 3D to be just as awesome in 2D, but a well deserved spoof of the 3D movement. At Fantastic Fest Secret Screening #3, Steve-O introduced some preview footage from Jackass 3D. It was the same reel they showed at the beer party at San Diego Comic Con, but if you didn’t get to see that I’ll describe it for you again. But first, he did a live Jackass stunt, lighting his hair on fire with hairspray, then having his buddy blow a fireball off it. Sorry, my camera missed the fireball but you can still see his head on fire. The video and more after the jump...

Listen, I thought Jackass #2 was the best movie of 2006 and I stand by that. It was so creative with stunts, well performed, artistically composed and put together. It has motifs and plays with its own format. They’v taken it to the next level of what entertainment should be and I fully expect Jackass 3D to be just as awesome in 2D, but a well deserved spoof of the 3D movement.

A Fantastic Fest Secret Screening #3, Steve-O introduced some preview footage from Jackass 3D. It was the same reel they showed at the beer party at San Diego Comic Con, but if you didn’t get to see that I’ll describe it for you again. But first, he did a live Jackass stunt, lighting his hair on fire with hairspray, then having his buddy blow a fireball off it. Sorry, my camera missed the fireball but you can still see his head on fire.

The video and more after the jump…

 


Steve-O opened with a comment: “James Cameron can suck our dicks. We’ve got enough cocks coming out of the screen, everyone can suck a dick. My challenge to you when you see the movie is try not to suck a dick.”

The brief clip that impressed me the most was a recreation of the famous Maxell commercial. It looks like either Ryan Dunn or Bam Margera sitting on a couch getting blown away by a jet engine. I have to guess because he’s blown away so fast I didn’t have time to really see. Now that is not a stupid stunt. That is a social commentary putting a culturally significant image to the test. And they got a jet engine! That’s awesome.

In the traditional filmed Jackass opening, Johnny Knoxville says, “Welcome to Jackass” and gets pounded in the face with an air balloon. One of the guys takes a large ball slingshot into his nuts. Party Boy (dancing again with streamers) gets a spank from a giant hand. Preston Lacy takes a cannonball to the gut which jiggles in your face. Three other jackasses stand behind him dressed as pirates. Wee Man gets slapped around by fish. Bam plays a human piñata with his parents cheering him on.

There are so many layers to this I don’t even feel I can express it in words. First of all, it has become a motif of Jackass that the guys hit each other with giant hands and other objects. So the elevation of the smacking has become an art form itself. These little episodes address so much about the franchise, from Bam’s tormenting of his parents to the role of Party Boy in post-Janet Jackson society. And it’s in 3D.

They show one full scene, the Poo Cocktail Supreme. You may remember Johnny Knoxville’s first stunt in a tipped over port-a-potty. Now they attach a porta-potty to cranes on bungee chords. Steve-O worries, because it’s not the sh*t that bothers him, it’s the roller coaster-esque shaking. He’s wearing jean shorts, a tank top and a hardhat.

They launch the port-a-potty and on the way down, poo sprays out into the audience. Inside the john, the poo hovers in mid-air in 3D. Steve-O spits some of it out of his mouth, and the slo-mo replay totally works in 3-D. If Hollywood is going to make us wear 3D glasses to watch all our movies now, then they deserve to get 3D poop sprayed in their laps.

A montage of other stunts shows the Jackass goodness to come next month. Knoxville and others dress as Santa Claus and sit in a tree while it’s cut down. Most 3D of all, some jackass shot only from the waste down and bent over blows a party streamer out his ass, into the audience’s lap.

You may think it’s too much to analyze Jackass this much. I say if something creates this much joy, this much entertainment, it’s worth thinking about. Even if the guys are just doing what comes naturally, it’s my job to articulate why it works and I’m happy to turn my brain ON in anticipation of Jackass 3D.

‘Jackass 3D’ Trailer Justifies 3D Technology http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jackass-3d-trailer-justifies-3d-technology/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jackass-3d-trailer-justifies-3d-technology/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I thought the whole 3D thing was just a fad. But as of today, consider me converted, just like Paul on the road to Damascus. But instead of an angry Jew riding a horse in ancient Syria, I'm a lazy gentile sitting on a couch in CA. And instead of being instantly blinded by the light of god, I'm slowly destroying my eyesight while watching the new Jackass 3D trailer on my laptop. Other than that, the comparison is spot on. From the looks of it, Jackass 3D is the reason why 3D was invented. All the stupid stunts and senseless violence really go a long way toward justifying the technology. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that the scene where the porta potty is bungeed into the air is a 1000 times more impressive than anything in Avatar. Plus, there are no blue people in Jackass, which is a plus. (Film School Rejects) Watch the new Jackass 3D trailer after the jump...

‘Jackass 3D’ Could Put Unpleasant Things in Your Face http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackass-3d-could-put-unpleasant-things-in-your-face/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackass-3d-could-put-unpleasant-things-in-your-face/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Jackass 3D is on Paramount's slate for 2010, and my senses couldn't be more disturbed. It's difficult to bare the Jackass stunts when they are at a safe distance, but a Steve-O's God-knows-what flopping around in front of my face? Neh eh. Some things we're meant to be left flat, veeeeeery rarely mind you, and Jackass might just be one of those things.There isn't any official news on the squeakqual (because those guys fart a lot), but the first two films were a box office success so it makes sense that Paramount would line up another one. Just imagine the kind of rig their going to have to construct to get a 3D shot of Johnny Knoxville lighting his pubes on fire with Everclear and Sterno. I think we've finally discovered what this transformative technology was meant for. (via /Film)
