“The next batch of painful ‘Jackass’ stunts is coming to a computer screen near you,” The Associated Press reports.
“The first two films – spun off from the former MTV series – co-starred Johnny Knoxville and his gang of gross-out pranksters as they performed stunts to the delight of their youthful fans. But for the sequel ‘Jackass 2.5,’ the dirty daredevils pull a new stunt: bypassing the movie theater entirely,” AP reports.
“‘Jackass 2.5’ will instead be released to the Internet. The feature – which combines unreleased footage from ‘Jackass Number Two’ and new content – was announced Thursday as a joint venture between Viacom-owned Paramount Pictures and MTV Networks,” AP reports.
Blockbuster will present ‘Jackass 2.5’ free of charge at http://www.blockbuster.jackassworld.com beginning Dec. 19 through Dec. 31; on Dec. 26, DVDs of the film will be available for purchase on the site and at major retailers, as well as for rent at Blockbuster stores and the company’s Web site. The film will also be available [to be purchased] for download at Apple’s iTunes Store,” AP reports.
