Box Office Results: G.I.Joe Rules

Well despite reviews, or maybe because of them, the Joe's ruled the box office this weekend, not to mention it made almost 100 million worldwide. G.I.Joe made and estimated 56 milion this weekend. With worldwide results this means it should make back it's reported 170 million production, which means a sequel to this joke. Considering they tamed the big bad ass Baroness and seemingly killed of Storm Shadow, one wonders how they are going to come back for more. My only hope is that they replace Channing Tatum, who is the worst wooden actor for the role of Duke.A cartoon Duke would be better.

Julia and Julie came in with a modest 20 million, but word of mouth is being counted on to keep their legs up. Next week we get District 9, Time Travelers Wife and The Goods. Should be a pretty good spread.

1. GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra: $56.2m
*    2. Julie & Julia: $20.1m
*    3. G-Force: $9.8m
*    4. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: $8.8m
*    5. Funny People: $7.9m
*    6. The Ugly Truth: $7m
*    7. A Perfect Getaway: $5.8m
*    8. Aliens in the Attic: $4m
*    9. 500 Days of Summer: $3.73m
*    10. Orphan: $3.73m
UPDATE CORRECTION: It seems GI Joe made about 44 million worldwide for a total of about 100 million between NA and the rest. Sorry for that boo boo.
