With the release of Jackass Forever, the makers of the latest comedy satisfied the right one of the audience. Paramount’s comedy minted $23.5 million at the domestic box office after playing in 3,604 theaters. Continuing the ongoing series of projectiles to the groin, Jackass Forever is the fourth installment.
Following a 12-year hiatus, Paramount Pictures, MTV Entertainment, and Dick Productions decided to bring back Knoxville’s slapstick, gross-out comedy franchise. According to reports, Jackass Forever is the last film in the franchise. The fourth installment, which stars Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man, and other daredevils from the MTV era, had been widely expected to win the weekend, but it still stands out because it has been a while since a pure comedy has taken the top spot at the box office. The latest film follows Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. It topped the charts for six of the last eight weeks.

Moonfall, another new release, has less reason to celebrate than Jackass Forever. At 3,446 theaters, the science-fiction catastrophe film earned just $10.1 million, below projections. Moonfall managed to place second on the domestic box office charts despite the light release schedule. Sony’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home” fell to No. 3 for its eighth weekend in theaters. Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Wee Man, Danger Ehren, Preston Lacy, Sean “Poopies” McInerney, Zach Holmes, Eric Manaka, and Rachel Wolfson all-star in Jackass Forever, which reunites many original crew members. Moonfall, however, stars Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley, Michael Pe*a, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, and Donald Sutherland.
