This weekend the fight went down. Bernard Hopskins is still the Light heavyweight titleholder at the age of 48.
The Johnny Knoxville comedy Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa opened in first place at the weekend box office, dethroning Gravity, which fell to second place after three weeks at Number One. In this latest installment in the Jackass franchise, Knoxville is disguised as an 86-year-man traveling the country with his eight-year-old grandson, played by Jackson Nicoll, pulling pranks and stunts on unsuspecting people. Spike Jonze and Georgina Cates co-star.
Opening in fourth place was Ridley Scott-directed The Counselor, which stars Michael Fassbender as a lawyer who gets in over his head when he decides to dabble in the drug trade. Co-starring are Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz.
12 Years a Slave moved up into the Top Ten, finishing in eighth place, as it expanded to more screens. However, the critically-acclaimed drama is still playing in only 123 theaters.
