When we posted the first trailer for this movie there was some question about whether or not the whole thing was a joke. Apparently, it is not.
The movie is based off the popular internet video, “EPIC BEARD MAN”. That video featured an older man on a bus who got into a verbal and physical altercation with a younger man. The video was a viral hit and the old man gained some internet notoriety from it.
For the purposes of this movie, Danny Trejo is the old man and the story is revised to have him protect an old woman from skin heads. There’s also Ron Perlman as a cop.
Bad Ass is slated to hit theaters on April 13 in a limited release.
