It’s Go “Joe” at the Box Office

8372b_GI-Joe-Retaliation-UK-Quad-posterApparently taking more than 9 months to fix your movie, I mean add 3D to it, worked well for Paramount as the long-delayed sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation opened to a good $40 million over the Easter weekend and $51 million to date. Those were pretty strong numbers for a film many thought didn’t merit a sequel. Joe added the star power of The Rock and Bruce Willis and easily defeated two other newcomers Tyler Perry’s Temptation and The Host…. Temptation opened along the lines of most Perry films with a decent $21.6 million while The Host (the latest YA from that Twilight hack writer) tanked with just $10 million…. Holding up the best over the holiday weekend was the family animated comedy The Croods with another $26 million…. For more on all the numbers, head to Box Office Mojo and check out the new top ten below.
