More 3D Jackass On The Way?

more 3d jackass may be coming to theaters soon

Did U get your fill of 3D Jackass this weekend? If not, it looks like you may get another chance sooner than later.

After a phenomenal $50.4 million opening weekend, Paramount is thinking about what to do with footage that didn't make it to the big screen.

Here's what Johnny Knoxville had to say about the extra footage:

“We shot two movies' worth of footage. We have so many bits that we never even turned in to Paramount because we were so swamped with ideas — funny stuff. The bits were just coming out of us left and right.”

The original plan by Paramount was to release an online follow-up to Jackass 3D, much like Jackass 2.5, which was released on the Internet three months after the theatrical release of Jackass Number Two.

Now, after the enormous success of Jackass 3D, Paramount is giving consideration to a second theatrical release. According to a source, the studio is likely to make a decision about where/when to release the follow-up with the next few days.

If they choose another theatrical release, it's likely that they'll film new footage, instead of solely relying on deleted scenes from Jackass 3D.

Would U buy another movie ticket to see more 3D Jackass in theaters?

James Cameron Talks About Riding The Avatar Cash Cow Even More!

If you think a silly little thing like being released on DVD will stop Avatar from bringing in the bucks from the big screen, then you are sorely mistaken!

The 3D smurf ca$h cow will be released on Thursday for your home entertainment, but director James Cameron has once again found a way to make some more $$$ - he'll be releasing the 3D film in theaters once again in August - but this time with added footage!

He says:

We’re working on finishing an additional six minutes of the film — which includes a lot of Weta work — for a theatrical re-release in August. We were sold out of our Imax performances right up to the moment until they were contractually obligated to switch to “Alice in Wonderland,” so we know we left money on the table there. And the 3-D really helped “Avatar” right up until the moment that it hurt it. And it hurt it at the moment “Alice” and then “How to Train Your Dragon” and “Clash of the Titans” came in and sucked up all the 3-D screens. We went from declining 8% a week to declining 50%. Clearly, it wasn’t market forces directly; it was the availability of theaters. So we’re going to wait until there’s a time to come back in, inject the new footage into the mix and see if we can interest people in the “Avatar” experience in theaters.

It’ll be interesting because it’ll be on DVD by then, but I think “Avatar” is kind of a unique category where people are enjoying the unique theatrical experience even though they may have seen it on the small screen. They want to have that immersive, transportive experience. “2001: A Space Odyssey” played for three years at the Loews cinema in Toronto. I remember that. It just kept playing. People wanted to return to that experience. That may not be the best example because I think “2001” took 25 years to break even.

He also spoke briefly about what to expect from the film's sequels - yes, he's working on a third:

We created a broad canvas for the environment of film. That’s not just on Pandora, but throughout the Alpha Centauri AB system. And we expand out across that system and incorporate more into the story – not necessarily in the second film, but more toward a third film. I’ve already announced this, so I might as well say it: Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment – a different setting within Pandora. And I’m going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won’t be a rain forest. I’m not saying we won’t see what we’ve already seen; we’ll see more of that as well.

Wow! He's going to be working on these movies for the next twenty years!

What do U think?? Will U see Avatar again in theaters?? Thoughts on sequels??
