According to multiple reports, including Fox News and NBC, "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn has died in a car accident.
Based on comments made by April Margera, mother of Dunn's "Jackass" co-star Bam Margera, it appears that Dunn and a passenger were both killed in car accident when his car hit a tree in West Goshen, Pennsylvania sometime between 2:30 and 3 a.m. this morning. The identity of the second victim is still unclear, though Dunn had posted a photo of himself out with friends two hours before his death.
Dunn was just 34 years old.
As the pop princess who started a bubblegum revolution, Britney Spears has seen the highest of highs... and as a woman who had a very public meltdown a few years back, she's also seen the lowest lows.
Honestly, we're not quite sure how to categorize the sight of her being covered in supposed human waste while riding in a portable toilet attached to a bungie cord. All we can do is sit back and appreciate it. Get More »
Spin-offs are inevitable when something in Hollywood becomes successful. While "Jackass" will never be nominated for an Oscar (well, not until the Academy recognizes Achievement in Excrement), the three movies have grossed over $330 million worldwide.
Since we haven't heard of any in the works, we took the liberty of devising nine concepts. Get More »
Johnny Knoxville and his merry band of misfits are back for a third cinematic go round in "Jackass 3," and though they're all visibly too old for this s**t, we love them all the more for it.
Showing no signs of slowing down, Knoxville and his crew (including Steve-O and momma's boy Bam Margera) ride speedboats into hedges, soar to the sky in outhouses, piss in each others faces, walk through taser minefields and start a midget fight in a bar (don't ask).
That's just for starters. Get More »
Haven't been reading Variety every day? Then you may not have noticed, but Oscar campaign season is in full swing.
That means Hollywood insiders are being flooded with advertisements touting the achievements of this year's awards contenders, for their consideration while casting votes on Academy Award ballots.
Occasionally, the campaigns will originate from surprising or inspired places. Case in point: Last week, Paramount unveiled one for the blockbuster hit "Jackass 3D," making its case for Best Picture, Art Direction, Cinematography and more.
In the spirit of the "Jackass 3D" campaign (and also in respect for its balls), we dug up these six other surprising 2011 For Your Consideration Oscar posters you may have missed. Get More »
Let's face it: In Hollywood, it all comes down to money. Sure, we movie fans like to talk about the artistic merits of the form and debate important subjects like whether or not Harry Potter and his friends could beat Bella and her boys in a throwdown. But for the bigwigs in Tinseltown, the final score is counted out in cold hard cash.
Well, we can play that game too, mister! In our quest to explore every aspect of the last year in movies, we've taken a careful look at each ledger, tally sheet and budgetary report to come out of Hollywood. The result: our official review of the 10 biggest box office headlines of 2010. Get More »
Paramount Digital Entertainment and MTV have had a surprise hit in the form of "Jackass 3-D," the gross-out threequel that has grossed over $155 million. That's a lot of dough for three-dimensional poop gags.
Common thinking says the companies should double down on the scat humor and release another sequel to theaters, but Paramount and MTV have cooked up something different: a semi-sequel that will be released directly to the web. Get More »
"Jackass 3-D" has only been in theaters for a week and already its stars are planning the content for a "Jackass 3.5" DVD that will include numerous gags too crazy to fit into the theatrical version.
This from an interview with MTV, where the gang stated that "Jackass 3.5" will likely hit shelves in January and contain stunts such as "Slip and Bow," "Incredible Nut Shots" and "Rocket Ship to Your Anus," natch.
"The 'Rocket Ship to Your Anus!' I was watching that today and was like, 'Man, should we have put that in the movie?' " Knoxville said. "There's a few of those bits — more than a few of those bits — in '3.5.' "
"Jackass 3-D" smashed box office expectations with an October-record $50.3 million opening last weekend.
When "Jackass" the television show was first released in 2000, Johnny Knoxville and crew's absurd, dangerous and often injurious stunts caused a flood of parents' groups to throw their hands up and decry the pervasive influence of the boys on the children of America.
It is pure insanity any time you get the whole "Jackass" crew in one room – which is probably why the guys were split into smaller groups to answer our questions at an L.A. press event (and come to think about it, having them all in one room would be like a reverse-press conference… on crack).
