Paramount’s “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” started solidly with $1.4 million in late night shows in the U.S. on Thursday.
“Gravity” has won three straight frames and should end this weekend in the $20 million range. Its domestic gross hit $179.5 million Thursday and its worldwide cume has gone well past $300 million.
“Bad Grandpa” co-stars child actor Jackson Nicoll and has a $15 million production budget. Paramount is trying to manage expectations, citing prospects in the high-teens, low-$20 millions, though other tracking predictions are higher.
