Blowing stuff up never gets old in movies, as the death-defying pranksters from MTV's reality series "Jackass" proved at the North American box office over the weekend.

"Jackass 3D," the third installment in a feature series about a crew of thrill junkies, crushed forecasts by selling an estimated 50 million dollars (USD) in tickets during its first three days of release across the United States and Canada.

If projections hold up, the film will set the mark as the biggest October opening of all time.

Opening at a distant No. 2 was "Red," a Bruce Willis action drama based on a DC Comics book. It earned 22.5 million, in line with expectations. The film, also stars Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren.

After two weeks at No. 1, the acclaimed Facebook drama "The Social Network" rounded out the top 3.

Grammy-winning R&B singer Alicia Keys and her rapper boyfriend Swizz Beatz welcomed their first child into the world. The baby boy, Egypt, was born October 14 in New York City. Keys and Beatz were married in late July this year, and they have been together since 2008.

Neil Patrick Harris is officially a first-time father. The "How I Met Your Mother" television star announced via Twitter that he and partner David Burtka's surrogate twins arrived on October 12th.
