A comedy movie a day takes the sadness away! The fourth in line, Jackass Forever has done wonders in the box-office in the first week. Made with a budget of 10 million dollars, the movie earned a whopping amount of 23.5 million dollars in its first week.
The movie, released along with the sci-fi movie Moonfall has succeeded to top the list, pushing Spiderman: No Way Home on the third spot after enjoying the first spot for around two months. The movie was released in around 3,604 theatres, and approximately in each theatre, the movie earned $6,250 in the first week.
It has been assumed that due to the pandemic, the audience was lesser. However, the movie is assumed to have earned more in normal circumstances.
What is the Story About?
The fourth installment, Jackass Forever, is a comedy and adventurous ride. The whole gang, along with Johnny and Steve-O, displays weird, dangerous, and absurd actions and adventures which, even if absurd and dangerous, is funny enough to make people laugh and forget all their troubles for some time.
The movie is purely targeted at making the audience laugh, and seeing the earnings and its top place in the chart, and we can say that it has succeeded in achieving its target. The movie series had many fans from its very beginning, and the new Jackass Forever has just added a more significant number of fans to the list. So, fasten your seatbelts and get ready for the best comedy ride of your life with the Jackass Forever cast!
Why is the Movie Such a Huge Success?
The movie is a huge success, mostly because it puts the audience in a lighter mood. There is no critical storyline to understand and no backstory that the audience needs to know before watching the movie. The new viewers can just randomly decide to watch the movie and come to the theaters and come out of it as fans.
Another factor in its success is the history of the previous movies of the series. Anyone reading about the movie series will realize that the new installation is worth watching. The movie’s positive reviews with fewer critics and good IMDb ratings also add to its success. The promotions of the movie done by Johnny Knoxville on different platforms are an added factor to its success.
Also, the seats in the theaters are getting full as the movie is released only in the theaters and not on any other streaming apps presently.
Will There be a Fifth Movie in the Movie Series?
There is, unfortunately, no news on the fifth movie of the series, and it is nearly sure that the fourth movie is the end of the superhit comedy-adventure movie series. The end is reasonable because the shooting for the Jackass movies is known to be at times physically dangerous for the cast.
The human body is fragile, and with time, the actors of the movie series are getting old too, which means having more risk of injuries and recoveries while shooting. The fourth installation came after a massive gap of 12 years, while the other Jackass movies were released within a shorter gap of four years.
The first Jackass movie, Jackass: The Movie released in 2002, with the second movie, named Jackass Number Two, released in 2006. The third movie Jackass 3D released in 2010, and the recent Jackass Forever, released on February 4, 2022, in the USA, is the sequel of the third movie.
Cast and Makers
The movie has a hugely loved cast of Johnny Knoxville, Rachel Wolfson, Steve-O, Eric Andre, Zach Holmes, Jeff Tremaine, Jasper Dolphin, Bam Margera, Jason Acuna, Machine Gun Kelly, and Francis Ngannou, among others. The interesting fact about the movie is that it has the cast as its producer! The producers include Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Spike Jonze, and Jeff Tremaine.
The storyline is written by Jason Acuna, Derrick Beckles, Colton Dunn, Spike Jonze, Nick Kreiss, and Knate Lee, among others. The last three movies of the Jackass series are available on Paramount+, which makes the fans expect the fourth movie to be available on Paramount+ after some time. So watch all four and forget all troubles of the actual pandemic world for some time!
