Between Jackass Number Two and Jet Li's Fearless this weekend, young males are again the primary target of the domestic boxoffice. The question is, can they possibly support both films plus last week's holdover, Sony Pictures' Gridiron Gang? Add on the fact that Flyboys is targeting older males and All the King's Men is out to reach adults, and one must wonder what teenage girls will be doing this weekend because there sure isn't a new movie out there for them. Jackass, from Paramount Pictures, is the sure winner of the weekend. Johnny Knoxville and his gang of knuckleheads will stun audiences again with their stupid human tricks. The R-rated film is set to bow in 3,059 theaters, but whether it will reach the $22.7 million opening number of Jackass: The Movie in 2002 remains to be seen. Industry insiders are placing the gross in a range similar to the original, though with the boxoffice down the past two weekends, underperforming is a possibility. Directed by Jeff Tremaine, who helmed the original, Jackass reunites Knoxville with cohorts Bam Margera, Chris Pontius and Steve-O, among others.
