While Paramount's "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" has bumped three-time champ "Gravity" from the top spot at the box office with a $32 million domestic opening, it appears to have taken out Fox's "The Counselor" with it, pushing the fellow opener to a dismal $8 million bow.

Off only 32% from last weekend, "Gravity" wasn't pushed off course far for second. The space drama will earn about $20.3 million this frame, bringing its domestic cume a hair's breadth from $200 million -- so close, in fact, it may have crossed that milestone when the weekend's actuals are released on Monday.

Before Friday, "The Counselor" was looking to earn between $10 million and $12 million, itself a pretty ho-hum start for the $25 million Ridley Scott passion project.

It's hard to say what role negative reviews played in the film's bow, but a 22% among top critics on Rotten Tomatoes may have dissuaded adult moviegoers who might otherwise be interested in a film with name brand talent including Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz.

With $32 million, "Bad Grandpa" is grossing more than twice its reported budget of $15 million, a strong start for Paramount despite falling far short of "Jackass 3D," which opened to $50.4 million around this time in 2010.
