Prank movie Jackass 3D remains atop the Australian box office in its second week at cinemas ahead of Facebook film The Social Network.

Jackass 3D grossed more than $1.9 million across 198 screens for an impressive screen average of $9682. It has now taken almost $6.6 million across two weekends.

The Social Network posted $1.46 million in its third weekend while low-budget sci-fi film Skyline scored third place with $1.25 million in its opening weekend. The Hopscotch-distributed film was shown across 181 screens giving it a screen average of $6889.

Meanwhile, Sony-distributed action film Machete topped the limited release tables with $149,881 across 50 screens, giving it a screen average of $2998.

Among Australian films, horror-comedy The Loved Ones continued its disappointing run, posting a 50 per cent drop in its second weekend.

The film took $60,343 across 89 screens leaving it with a screen average of just $678.

Aussie romance Summer Coda grossed another $16,586 in its fourth weekend – a 36 per cent fall compared to the previous week – across 17 screens.

The animated Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole added another $39,282 in its seventh week as it approaches the end of its cinematic run.
