Jackass Forever Stunts its way to a weekend home box office win over Spider-Man: No Way Home
Jackass Forever dethroned Spider-Man: No Way Home at the weekend domestic box office by earning $23 million in ticket sales during its opening weekend.
As reported by Variety, Jackass Forever – which reunites Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Danger Ehren and Preston Lacy and sees them pull off outrageous stunts no one should try at home – has more than doubled its output $10 million budget.
In our review of Jackass Forever, we said, “The final chapter in America’s most chaotic comedy saga, Jackass Forever is a hilarious last hurray for its original team.” An outlandish stunt show filled with more movie homages (and more bodily fluids) than ever before. , he takes an ill-advised trip down memory lane and ups the ante maniacally. Few recent movies have been funnier or more delightfully nostalgic.
Spider-Man: Away Home – which had won six of the last seven weekends at the box office – fell to third place with $9.6 million. No Way Home has now earned $748.9 million at the domestic box office and sits just $11.1 million behind Avatar and becomes the third biggest domestic release in history.
Worldwide, Spider-Man: No Way Home has reached $1.77 billion and continues to hold sixth place in the worldwide box office of all time.
Second place with $10.1 million was newcomer Moonfall – the sci-fi disaster movie which stars Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley, Michael Peña and Donald Sutherland. Moonfall cost $140 million to produce, so it has a long way to go to recoup its costs.
In our review of Moonfall, we said, “The big ideas in Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall are presented in the most rote and unimaginative way. Instead of disaster looking like a huge spectacle backed by broad emotions, it unfolds like a mechanical recreation of many better films, some of Emmerich himself.”
Scream placed fourth with $4.7 million, bringing its four-week domestic total to $68.9 million. Sing 2 rounded out the top five by bringing in an additional $4.1 million to bring its domestic total to $139.5 million.
