Johnny Knoxville's latest movie is showing some longevity.

His prank comedy "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" was the top-selling DVD and Blu-ray title in its second week in release, according to the latest rankings from Rentrak. The movie is up from its position on the previous week's home video sales chart, when it debuted in second place.

Last week's No. 1 movie, "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2," fell to third place as the action-thriller "Escape Plan" entered at No. 2.

"Escape Plan," which stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, was not much of a box office success domestically, generating just $25 million from ticket sales in the U.S. and Canada. However, it made up ground in other countries and ended up with a worldwide take of $137 million, including its domestic revenue.

Other new releases included Reel FX Creative Studios and Relativity Media's computer-animated adventure "Free Birds," which landed at No. 4, and the straight-to-video superhero cartoon "Justice League: War" at No. 8. 

The Oscar-nominated drama "Dallas Buyers Club," starring Matthew McConaughey as a Texan with AIDS who gets medicine to fellow patients, debuted in 10th place. 

"Bad Grandpa" was also the top rental. 

Here are the rankings from Rentrak for the week that ended Feb. 8 for sales and Feb. 9 for rentals.
