Jackass 3D is #1 at the box office. Unbelievable but true!

Johnny Knoxville and his “Jackass” gang are even bigger hits in three dimensions.  “Jackass 3D,” their latest big-screen collection of crazy stunts and antics, opened with a whopping $50 million, soaring past the debuts of their first two movies, according to studio estimates Sunday. 

It was the third-straight No. 1 opening for Paramount’s franchise, which launched with a $22.8 million opening for 2002’s “Jackass: The Movie” and then a $29 million debut for 2006’s “Jackass Number Two.” 

“Jackass 3D” set a record for biggest October debut, topping the $48.1 million opening weekend for “Scary Movie 3” in 2003.  Premiering at No. 2 with $22.5 million was Summit Entertainment’s action comedy “Red,” starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Mary-Louise Parker in the tale of retired black-ops agents targeted by the CIA. 

Despite the huge opening for “Jackass 3D,” Hollywood was unable to pull out of a box-office slide that has persisted this fall.  Overall revenues totaled $133 million, down 4 percent from the same weekend last year. 

Sony’s acclaimed Facebook drama “The Social Network,” which had been No. 1 the previous two weekends, held up well as it slipped to third-place.  Estimated ticket sales, in millions, for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to

1. “Jackass 3D” … $50

2. “Red” … $22.5

3. “The Social Network” … $11
