The sequel to “Jackass” topped the North American chart this weekend at theaters. The film, staring Johnny Knoxville and his friends, grossed about $28.1 million, according to Exhibitor Relations Co. Inc.

“Jackass Number Two” cost only $11 million to make and is a favorite among young males. It beat out all of the other serious movies this weekend including Jet Li’s “Fearless” which grossed $10.6 million.

Knoxville’s new movie is full of the outrageous stunts that made his first movie popular. Number Two beat out the First Jackass movie’s opening weekend back in 2002. The gross back then was $22.8 million. Associated Press reports that males accounted for two-thirds of the movie's audience, with 71 per cent of the crowd younger than 25.

“Gridiron Gang” placed third this week. This was last week’s favorite movie. The film is about a group of Los Angeles juvenile delinquents inspired by their football coach. The film brought in about 9.7 million dollars.

“Flyboys” was fourth with $6 million followed by “Everyone’s Hero” with $4.8 million. “Black Dahlia” grossed $4.4 million while “All the King’s Men” did $3.8 million. "The Covenant" (3.3 million); "The Illusionist" (3.28 million); "Little Miss Sunshine" (2.9 million);" Invincible" (2.6 million); and "The Last Kiss" (2.5 million).
