Johnny Knoxville's outrageous all-new movie is planned for Blu-ray in July. Pre-orders are now live.
In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount says 'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5' will hit Blu-ray on July 8.
BAD GRANDPA .5 gives you a whole new perspective on the world of Irving Zisman with unbelievable bonus scenes and hilarious pranks also featuring Academy Award-winner Spike Jonze (as “Gloria”) and Oscar®-nominee Catherine Keener (as Irving’s wife “Ellie”)…plus a look at the evolution of Johnny Knoxville’s naughty alter-ego, the Academy Award-nominated makeup effects, and an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek at the idiocy it takes to make a hidden camera movie in public.
“So many hilarious scenes and pranks didn’t make it into Bad Grandpa because they didn’t make sense for the story—I’m talking five-star bits that were painful to cut from the movie. You’ll get to see them all in BAD GRANDPA .5 and maybe some stuff we shouldn’t show you,” said Johnny Knoxville. “You know how we always joke we have no clue what we’re doing? Well, when you see the ‘window up ,window down’ behind-the-scenes footage on BAD GRANDPA .5 you'll know we aren’t lying. Amazing. Can’t wait till you see that and the whole damn movie.”
Specs haven't been revealed yet, but supplements include over 40 minutes of additional footage including a roundtable discussion with Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze and director Jeff Tremaine about the evolution of Irving Zisman, a series of pranks gone bad, outtakes and more.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $22.98.
