'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa' Trailer: Johnny Knoxville Looks Old

"X-Men" spinoff "The Wolverine" was #1 at the box office last weekend, so we know spinoffs can mean big business (not so much the unfairly maligned Elektra, of course).

Two years after "Jackass 3.5," the Jackass crew provides us with a spinoff film starring beloved 86 year-old grandpa Irving Zisman. Of course, Zisman is actually Johnny Knoxville under some Six Flags commercial style old-man makeup. "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" promises to mix secret-camera footage with a fictitious narrative about Zisman on a road trip with his 8 year-old grandson, Billy (Jackson Nicoll). Get More »

First Trailer for 'Nature Calls' Features Cursing and Crucifixion


There are red band trailers, and then there's the trailer for Todd Rohal's latest, "Nature Calls." Seeing as the R-rated comedy is about a group of—let's just say slightly immature—men who take a group of energetic (and yes, by energetic we do mean wild and hormonal) boy scouts on a camping trip, it's not all that surprising that the trailer is more than a little crass.

With Patton Oswalt, Johnny Knoxville, Rob Riggle and Patrice O'Neal in the cast line-up, this might be the dirtiest comedy of the year. While it runs just a hair over two-and-a-half minutes, we still lost count of the number of expletives and off-color references. Get More »

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...

• Any film that describes itself as "in the vein of 'Amelie' and '(500) Days of Summer'" certainly has our attention. Deadline reports that Captain America himself, Chris Evans, and Michelle Monaghan will star in "A Many Splintered Thing," an "anti-romantic comedy" that tells the story of a young man who meets a breathtaking — and engaged — young woman at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist.

• It looks like Max Minghella wants a set of "Horns," too. Variety reports that the "Social Network" star is in talks to join Daniel Radcliffe in the screen adaptation of Joe Hill's (son of Stephen King) novel about a man who wakes up after a night of debauchery to discover that he's grown a pair of ... well, horns.

Package up one of Tinseltown's squeaky-cleanest teen actresses, a family-friendly holiday conundrum and Johnny Knoxville getting punched in the nether region, and what do you get? A "Fun Size" comedic trick or treat, that's what.

From first-time director Josh Schwartz (former executive producer on "The O.C." and "Gossip Girl") and screenwriter Max Werner ("The Colbert Report"), "Fun Size" features Victoria Justice of Nickelodeon fame as a girl whose Halloween night priority is making it to the popular boy in school's big bash (which she was totally invited to, btw). Buzz-killer mom portrayed by Chelsea Handler decides to stick her in charge of her"gross" little brother, though. After the Spider-Man costume-clad kid gets lost on her watch, she'll have to spend the rest of her night tracking the little bugger down. Woe is the homecoming queen! Get More »

Josh Hutcherson, Beyoncé and More Will Be in 'Epic' 3-D Movie

We know Beyoncé Knowles is the Queen of Pop (and the Queen of Jay-Z's kingdom), but she'll be taking her crown to the screen next May with the arrival of "Epic."

This upcoming animated film is the story of a young woman who finds herself lost in a magic forest. Unfortunately for her, a war is brewing and she's gotta figure out a way to save herself, the world she's stumbled upon and, you know, the folks back home. Of course, she'll need a little help from some new forest friends while she's there to get the job done right.

Bey will lend her golden vocal chords to the character of Queen Tara. It sounds likely that Amanda Seyfried's character Mary Katherine will be our heroine. They'll be joined by Josh Hutcherson, Colin Farrell, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Steven Tyler and a host of others actors and comedians as the characters our heroine encounters along the way — both goodies and baddies alike.
