“3D is the future of movies. But this probably isn’t what they had in mind.” That’s the line used by the marketeers at Paramount Pictures in their promotion of Jackass 3D, perhaps the most boldly ridiculous and crass application of the technology to date. It also feels pretty accurate when you watch this first trailer, which hit the web this evening. Johnny Knoxville, that guy with the very attractive wife, that little dude and their gang of idiots are back. And I have to give them some credit — the 92 seconds of footage from Jackass 3D may be the funniest stuff I’ve ever seen from them. That’s not hyperbole, it’s reality. I’ve long been in the “that stuff just isn’t funny” camp. Yet for some reason, on this night of nights, it had me chuckling mightily.
With that in mind, please enjoy the trailer after the jump.
