The first trailer for the fourth and final installment of the beloved Jackass franchise, jackass forever, has arrived.
jackass forever will arrive on October 21st. The first trailer is out now for the film is out now and Jesus Christ I didn’t think it was possible to get so choked up over middle-aged men doing stunts.
jackass forever stars a few familiar faves Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O (who both look fine as hell in their autumn years), Chris Pontius, Jason “Wee Man” Acuña, Preston Lacy, Ehren McGhehey, and Dave England. There’s also a bunch of fresh faces joining the cast, including the likes of new cast members Sean “Poopies” McInerney, Jasper Dolphin, and Zach Holmes.
There will also be special guest appearances from the likes of Eric Andre, Tony Hawk, Machine Gun Kelly, and Shaquille O’Neill.
The nostalgia-inducing trailer opens up with grainy black and white footage of the OG Jackass crew. It then cuts to the current-day gang of misfits, featuring footage of Knoxville acting as a human cannonball, and Jaspar being parachuted into the air before landing right on his noggin.
“Celebrating the joy of being back together with your best friends and a perfectly executed shot to the dingdong, the original Jackass crew return for another round of hilarious, wildly absurd, and often dangerous displays of comedy with a little help from some exciting new cast,” a description for the film reads.

The trailer arrives after what feels like an age of teasing. Rumours that a fourth Jackass film was in the works were sparked by a Johnny Knoxville interview with EW way back in 2018.
“It’s not like we’re saying no. If we did do a new one, we’d have to bring in some new younger guys – just to bring some fresh blood into it. But it’s possible,” he said at the time.
Rumours reached a groundswell in December last year when Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O were hospitalised after filming a stunt for the film. The group’s troubled Bam Margera shared a video confirming, “The second day of filming Jackass and already Steve-O and Knoxville are hospitalised by jumping on a full-speed treadmill with band equipment, like a fucking tuba.”
Bam Margera was subsequently fired from production in 2021.
