(Newser) Gravity finally came down to Earth this weekend, relinquishing its No. 1 place at the box office to Johnny Knoxville's prank-fueled Bad Grandpa. The Jackass genre flick fooled $32 million out of moviegoers, while the Sandra Bullock-starring space thriller earned another $20.3 million—bringing its overall gross to an out-of-this world $199.8 million, the LA Times reports.

Not even in the same orbit, widely-panned Ridley Scott star vehicle The Counselor debuted to a meager $8 million, putting it at No. 4. It was bested by Tom Hanks-fronted Somali pirate film Captain Phillips, which plundered $11.8 million in its third week, per the Hollywood Reporter. And at No. 5, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 grossed $6.1 million.
