One of the funniest movies of the year is arriving on Blu-ray next month and is now available for pre-order.
In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount will be bringing 'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa' on Blu-ray on January 28.
'Jackass' ringleader Johnny Knoxville reprises his role as 86-year-old Irving Zisman in the story of a crotchety old man unexpectedly saddled with the care of his 8-year-old grandson, Billy (Jackson Nicoll). The two generations of troublemakers soon develop a bond, as they hustle their way across the heartland of America pursuing hijinks and pulling pranks on unsuspecting, real-life people—all of whom had no idea they were starring in a hidden camera film and “one of the sharpest comedies of the year.”(Scott Bowles, USA Today).
“We had so much hilarious footage that we had to cut for various reasons, so I’m psyched that people are going to get to see everything, especially when it’s unrated and on Blu-ray. Woohoo!!” said Johnny Knoxville. “Plus I think fans will get a kick out of seeing how we pulled off some of the pranks in the behind-the-scenes footage. As Irving would say, ‘The show’s not over until I hogwrench the fat lady's spatooly.'"
The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy Combo Pack will feature both the Theatrical and Unrated cuts of the film with 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes and Deleted Scenes.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
