Movie with cropped images of Jackass Forever is coming to Netflix

One of the film’s surprise hits earlier this year was the return of the Jackass crew in their fourth film, Jackass Forever† The film made a killing at the box office and is now on Blu-ray, but if that pain-filled nostalgic journey wasn’t enough, Netflix has announced the release date for jackass 4.5″† The movie will hit the streamer on May 20, and we’ve got a new sneak peek that’s sure to make fans of the franchise smile.

The 90-second teaser shows off a never-before-seen stunt called the Swingset Gauntlet, a stunt where the Jackass crew dodge a swing in colorful inflatable costumes. Like most of their previous stunts, it’s filled with hair-raising chaos and crushing sound design. Also, half of your laughter will come from everyone’s reactions like Johnny Knoxville, who falls to his knees at the hilarious sight of his friends being taken away by a swing. This stunt takes the recognizable pain of being hit by a swing and brings it to its most excruciating degree of pain.


Like it Jackass 2.5 and 3.5 for the, 4.5 seems to be more of the same, with new stunts and new ways to experience pain at a distance. In its original state, Forever came out at the perfect time. The pandemic has left the world in a very dark place and many have even doubted the relevance of theaters with the growing interest in streaming content. However, like a raging bull on the head, Forever hit the box office with over $80 million worldwide.

Part of that has to do with the aforementioned nostalgia, but it was mainly due to the film’s gleefully reminding audiences how to laugh. Sometimes you just need some stupid fun at the cinema, endlessly laughing at Steve-O with a wasp’s nest tied to his genitals or an exploding porta-potty, to remind you of the true value of cinema. It was silly escapism at its best, and it’s going to be exciting to see what Forever left on the cutting floor for: jackass 4.5″† Mainly because it sounds like there’s no jackass 5 soon.

jackass 4.5″ explodes on Netflix on May 20. Until then, you can watch and watch the full teaser for the movie below Jackass Forever on Paramount+. Forever is now also available on Blu-ray and digital.
