'Jackass 3D' and 'Red' ready to unseat 'The Social Network'
Thursday 14 October 2010
Based on the success of the first two
Jackass films, the third installment,
Jackass 3D, could take the top spot at the US box office this weekend. It might mean a battle with
Red to kick
The Social Network from the number one spot, held for two consecutive weeks.
Previously, Jackass: Number Two made $29 million its first weekend of release in 2006 and the original movie earned $22.7 million when it opened in 2002. So, the latest sequel, chock full of more daredevil antics in three dimensions, is expected to better those numbers.
The franchise, based on an MTV show, is hugely popular with young adult males. Some of its fans could draw moviegoers away from Red, the star-studded comedy action-adventure also hitting theaters this weekend.
Starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Morgan Freeman, Red is based on a comic book story about former black ops agents forced from retirement. Since the thriller appeals to a broader audience and carries 500 more cinemas screening the film, Red might grab the lead.
