Remember when we said James Cameron's sci-fi epic Avatar would influence movies for years to come? This is not what we had in mind.
The idiots behind the Jackass TV show and movies promise that the next installment will be in 3-D and will make use of the same visual-effects technology that Cameron pioneered for Avatar.
Here's what star/producer Johnny Knoxville said: "We're going to take the same 3D technology James Cameron used in AVATAR and stick it up Steve O's butt. We're taking stupid to a whole new dimension."
Of that we have no doubt. Following is the entire announcement. Jackass 3D opens in Oct. 15, 2010.

2002's "Jackass: The Movie" earned more than more than $64 million and was heralded as "a disgusting, repulsive, grotesque spectacle, but also hilarious and provocative. God help me, thumbs up" by esteemed critic Richard Roeper. Released in 2006, "Jackass: Number Two" earned over $72 million and was heralded by The New York Times as being "debased, infantile and reckless in the extreme, this compendium of body bravado and malfunction makes for some of the most fearless, liberated and cathartic comedy in modern movies.
