Outrageous stunt movie Jackass 3D has stormed to the top of the U.S. box office with a staggering $50 million opening weekend.
The movie, which is full of crazy pranks and features Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera and Steve-O, opened bigger than the first two Jackass films combined and claimed the biggest October opening ever.

It made over twice as much as star-studded action film RED, which opened in second place with a healthy $22.5 million .

Previous number one The Social Network has dropped to three, while Secretariat and Life as We Know It round out the new top five.
