After a decade of pulling off outrageous pranks, Johnny Knoxville and crew prove that audiences still love a crazy stunt. The guys, including Steve-O, Bam Margera and Jason "Wee-Man" Acuña, have been risking injury and freaking out fans since the "Jackass" TV show hit MTV in 2000. The latest installment of the series, the visually souped-up "Jackass 3D," scored a major opening weekend, netting $50 million its first two days on screens and blowing away the competition.
In second place, with less than half of the "Jackass" haul, is the spy flick "Red." Starring Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren and Bruce Willis as ex-CIA operatives targeted by their former employer, the movie rang up $22.5 million its debut weekend.
After ruling the box office for two consecutive weeks, "The Social Network" slid to third place. The movie, which features Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake as upstart entrepreneurs scrapping over the future of social-media behemoth Facebook, netted $11 million over the weekend. The film's third-week gross bumps its total estimated tally to just over $63 million.
Dropping one spot from last week is "Secretariat," Disney's feel-good tale of the 1973 Triple Crown victor. The film, which boasts performances from Diane Lane and John Malkovich, came in fourth place with $9.5 million. The movie has raked in an estimated $27.5 million since it landed in theaters.
The date-night pick "Life as We Know It" rounds out the top five. Although the film fell from second to fifth place this week, audiences still plunked down $9.2 million to catch Josh Duhamel and Katherine Heigl as frenemies who team up to raise their late friends' child. The movie's total estimated haul stands at around $28.9 million.
