G.I. Joe: Retaliation Easily Tops Box Office


The second in the franchise, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, debuted at the top of the box office this weekend ($41.2 million).  The decision to delay it from last Summer's line up, might have helped.

Meanwhile, Tyler Perry's Temptation, surprisingly nabbed 3rd place with a strong $22.3 million, just behind The Croods' $26.5 million.  A surprise, because Tyler Perry movies seem to be on a fatigue factor, as of late.

The Stephanie Meyer flick, The Host, managed a 6th place finish with $11 million.  Which is no where near the level of Twilight, even with a director on board that is probably better than anyone who directed the Twilight series.  It's safe to say striking gold twice is a rather rare occurrence.

All I do know is that these three new movies are some of the worst reviewed movies of the year: G.I. Joe: Retaliation (29% tomatometer), Temptation (16% tomatometer), and The Host (12% tomatometer).
