You will be able to stream Jackass Forever on Paramount. Here’s a full guide for you.
Jackass Forever, directed by Jeff Tremaine is the fourth installment of the title films created by the Jackass franchise. A mix of psychedelic, childlike whimsy meets street skating, hilarious pranks, and wild dares. With a more sober and aged cast, audiences can’t wait to see the hilarious and stupid magic between these old friends on the big screen again.
The hysterical, daring, and sometimes just plain weird stunt-centered franchise started with the CKY film series created in 1999 by BAM and his brother Jess Margera, alongside Rake Yohn, Brandon DiCamillo, Ryan Dunn, and Raab Himself. When others were trying to get spots in skateboard and stunt performers’ videos, the CKY crew decided to create and produce their own, eventually making four CKY films before the adaptation into the Jackass series on MTV. The Jackass franchise has gone on to define
a generation, creating three binge-able Seasons of the television series and nine films, including the Bad Grandpa series.
When Will Jackass Forever Be Released?
Originally scheduled for March of 2021, the release date for Jackass Forever has been delayed multiple times due to Margera’s lawsuit. The date has been pushed back to July of 2021, then to September, then October, and now February 4, 2022.
Will Jackass Forever Be On HBO Max?
no. Jackass Forever is a Paramount movie, not a Warner Bros. movie, and therefore will not be streaming on HBO Max when it opens in theaters. More than that, HBO Max will no longer be streaming theatrical movies in 2022.
Last year, Warner Media opted to simultaneously release its theatrical slate on streaming, meaning HBO Max subscribers could watch movies like Matrix Resurrections at home. This year, however, Warner Bros. theatrical movies will have a 45-day theaters-only run before moving to HBO Max.
Is “Jackass Forever” in Theaters or Streaming?
“Jackass Forever” is playing exclusively in theaters, which means that you can share the shock and embarrassment of the movie with total strangers.
When “Jackass Forever” will hit streaming platforms, likely first debuting on Paramount+, is still up in the air. It’s probably going to hit the direct-to-consumer platform 45 days (or later) after its initial release, a la “A Quiet Place: Part II” last summer, although the studio has been cagey about which movies are taking that route ( and when). For example, they still haven’t confirmed that the hit new “Scream” movie will be on Paramount+ soon, although that window is fast approaching. So right now, the only way to see “Jackass Forever” is in theaters.
What Will Jackass Forever Be About?
Audiences can expect to see the cast up to their regular, wild antics. The trailer, though, does not allude to any of the more gross skits for which the team is known.
With eleven years between the third and fourth films, fans of the original series are wondering if they will see the same craziness in the stunts with a cast who have aged over a decade. That query can be answered with the following filming incidents; During the two days of test filming, professional skateboarder Aaron “Jaws” Homoki broke his wrist. Following this incident, the team received a green light to start filming.
Within two days both Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O were hospitalized for on-set injuries. While the context for these injuries was not disclosed we will definitely see what caused them upon the film’s release. Additionally, in an interview with his podcast The Nine Club, Wee-Man stated that Jackass Forever “hurt the most”, so it is not likely the team has lowered their standards of reckless hilarity.
In the trailer we see Johnny Knoxville going face to face with a bull for the fourth time in the Jackass film series. This is one of the many ways that the fourth installment will pay homage to earlier skits. In addition, Knoxville will be making an appearance as his Bad Grandpa character.
Who Will We See In The Jackass Forever Cast?
In a 2018 AltPress interview, Johnny Knoxville speaks about bringing new cast members onto the Jackass team, stating he wanted to “bring in some fresh blood into it.” Audiences can expect to see some familiar faces making appearances, such as comedian prankster Eric Andre, new Jackass cast member Jasper Dolphin of Odd Future, Machine Gun Kelly, and more.
Raab, Himself from the original series has been said to make a cameo appearance in the film, as will The Dudesons, a Finnish stunt group with a similar series, and longtime friends of the Jackass cast. Additionally, professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, who appeared in the first Jackass film will be making a return appearance.
Audiences can expect to see most of the original cast members in Jackass Forever, including ringmaster Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O (who celebrated 13 years of sobriety in March of 2021), Jason “Wee Man” Acuna, Chris “Party Boy” Pontius, Dave England, Ehren “Danger Ehren” McGehee, Brandon DiCamillo, Preston Lacy, and Loomis Fall.
Margera was set to be part of the fourth Jackass film, but after he failed to comply with a sobriety agreement, the professional skateboarder was removed from the film’s cast. Following his removal from the film, Margera filed a lawsuit against Johnny Knoxville, Paramount Pictures, MTV Studios, Dickhouse Productions, director Jeff Tremain as well as executive producer Spike Jonze for enforcing the sobriety agreement.
