Leave it to Johnny Knoxville to throw a wrench in the normal Hollywood proceedings. Gravity seemed set up to finish first for the fourth week in a row but America can not deny their enduring love of all things Jackass. The comedy brought in $32 million far surpassing the estimates of $19 million. I think it is easy to say that we will be getting a Jackass 4 or Bad Grandpa 2 before we know it.

Gravity continued its amazing run bringing in $20.3 million and its worldwide total now sits at $364 million. Ridley Scott’s The Counselor was a disappointment this weekend only taking in $8 million. I figured more people would be interested in seeing Cameron Diaz have sex with a car but I guess not. And yes, I said have sex “with” not “in” a car.

Next week will get a mega sized boost with Thor: The Dark World releasing. I am interested to see how well it performs being the first solo Marvel movie after Avengers not involving Tony Stark and being Marvel’s first fall release.
