Thor: The Dark World
In its second weekend, "Thor: The Dark World" held onto the top spot with $38.4 million. Domestically, the movie is nearing the $150 million mark with a running total of $147 million. Internationally, it's already crossed the $450 million mark, with a running total of $479.8 million, and has surpassed the entire theatrical run of its predecessor, "Thor," which made $449.3 million. In spite of possible bad word-of-mouth once people actually saw it (our own review called it "the most deeply flawed Marvel movie since 'Iron Man 2' "), 'Thor 2' suffered only a 55% drop in its second weekend (compared to the 58% drop "Iron Man 3" felt from opening to second weekend).

Jackass: Bad Grandpa
After three weeks, "Gravity" has been taken down a peg by none other than "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa." Although it could read disheartening (Oscar-buzzed original sci-fi knocked down by lowbrow comedy third sequel), there's hope yet that we can still have nice things as a few limited release, independent films make their way onto the leader board.

This weekend, Ridley Scott’s certifiably bonkers “The Counselor” is getting a lot of attention for a sequence where Cameron Diaz has sex with a car. But that might not even be this week’s most insane sex scene. In the opening moments of “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa,” Johnny Knoxville, as elderly widower Irving Zisman, goes out looking to get lucky. After finding that all of his neighborhood Asian massage parlors are closed, he of course decides to stick his wang in a soda machine. We watch, via hidden cameras, as strangers react to watching a withered old man dry hump a vending machine and then, of course, get stuck.

Jackass: Bad Grandpa
Quick, cheap, dirty and raunchy: those are the key words to any "Jackass" production with Johnny Knoxville and the gang getting maximum, ball crushing bang for their limited bucks. They've been hugely successful too, with the entire trilogy of movies earning over $330 million worldwide, on very meagre budgets. Not bad. So of course the spinoff is here.

While the fall season promises movies of substance, value and perhaps Oscar consideration, if you need something outrageous, dumb, juvenile and also kind of hilarious, the dudes of "Jackass" are coming. Suddenly dropped onto the calendar in the last couple of weeks, the first trailer for "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" has arrived and it's just as wrong as you might expect.

Ever since the first film earned a healthy profit off its meager -- to put it mildly -- budget, the “Paranormal Activity” has been a mainstay of the Halloween movie season since 2009. And While “Paranormal Activity 5” was formerly scheduled for release in the series’ customary pre-Halloween slot, Paramount Pictures is shaking things up to make room for another of their cheapie, money-making franchises.
