(Mario Anzuoni/Reuters)Jackass Number 2 was the weekend movie box office champ with an impressive take of $29 million. Jet Li’s Fearless came in second at $10.5 million.

The football movie The Gridiron Gang came in third with about  $9.5 million, showing a strong continued appeal in its second week.

Although overall box office take was down for the third consecutive week, reflecting a year-long trend, Jackass Number 2 outgrossed the first Jackass move by $6 million and earned back its production costs in just the first weekend.
