But expect more titles to be announced to debut on that date in the future, as it stands more than two months from today.
The major studio will release at three editions of Jackass 3D (or just “3″ now), including a Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Copy, which will contain an unrated version that contains outrageous footage not seen in theaters, as well as the theatrically released version of the film. A two-disc DVD, and single-disc edition will also be released.
Unfortunately, it looks as though Jackass 3 won’t be released in 3D on Blu-Ray, at least initially. Still, it could be that a Jackass 3D Blu-Ray version could be released exclusively to a certain retailer, or company, as was done with Paramount’s “The Last Airbender”, as well as other 3D titles in other exclusive deals.
However, while Paramount Pictures won’t release a Jackass 3D Blu-Ray, the DVD disc will include an anaglyph stereoscopic 3D version of the film. What does that mean you might ask? It means that it’s still a moving picture, but the difference is that the red and blue color channels have been seperated, and then reassembled together to give a three-dimensional appearance when viewed with 3D glasses.
That said, the studio will be including four 3D glasses to view Jackass 3D on DVD only. Below are the announced special features. Only the Combo Pack, and the Two-Disc version will have the 3D DVD and glasses.

Jackass 3D Special Features
Following its theatrical release on October 15th, 2010, Jackass 3D was an absolutely massive box office smash, bringing it $50 million its opening weekend alone. It’s now earned more than $117 million domestically, and its worldwide box office stands at a huge $170 million, or more than eight times its modest $20 million budget.
It easily topped the $80 million worldwide total of the first Jackass, and the $85 million total of Jackass: Number Two. Both its predecessors were also incredibly big sellers on the DVD market, with the first Jackass movie taking in $79 million in DVD revenue, and Jackass: Number Two bringing in $49 million in DVD sales alone.
Even with a weaker Home Video Marker here in the United States, Jackass 3D should be a very strong seller, and could post very substantial DVD and Blu-Ray sales.
I get the feeling Paramount Pictures is testing the market by releasing Jackass 3D in the third-dimensional on DVD only, but it also makes sense since 3D was meant as a gimmick for the movie, and I think people will just want to see it as one. Plus, a small percentage of home have 3D HDTV’s, and 3D Blu-Ray players, so the reach wouldn’t be as broad.
