Exploding into theaters on February 4th after a run of COVID-related delays, the latest installment in Johnny Knoxville’s not-quite-venerable stunt prank franchise promises what one cast member calls “the gnarliest shit ever.” Bodies fly through the air, a portable toilet blows up, Eric Andre stops by to take an airbag to the face, and viewers are treated to a glimpse of the treadmill stunt that landed Knoxville and Steve-O in the hospital.
