BOX OFFICE: G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Continues To Dominate; Currently At $132M Globally
Despite mixed (at best) reviews, Jon M. Chu's G.I. Joe sequel shows no signs of slowing down at the box office. The movie is not only dominating domestically ($41.2M over the three-day Easter weekend) but has had the best international opening of 2013 so far.
We weren't big fans of G.I. Joe: Retaliation here (although we have a few more reviews to come; you can read mine here) but audiences have been flocking to it. Paramount reckon the sequel to G.I. Joe: Rise Of Cobra opened with a global gross of $132 million, which is +35% ahead of the worldwide opening of its predecessor. The movie currently holds the best international opening of 2013, surpassing Oz The Great And Powerful by 15% despite only opening in 75% of the world and has left other new openers The Croods, Tyler Perry's Temptations and The Host in the dust. Have you seen it yet? If not, do you intend to or have the reviews put you off? Sound off in the usual place.
