G.I. Joe Beats the Croods in the Box Office


gijoe2600

DreamWorks’ The Croods originally gave the studio a chance to get out of the rut that it’s been stuck in since the Rise of the Guardians’ poor box office performance, with the Caveman-themed feature managing to climb to the top, but Paramount’s action-packed movie loosely based on the hit Hasbro action figures, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, proved to be strong enough to knock the CG flick off the top spot, as it made an estimated $51.7 million at the US box office over the weekend.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation also made an additional $80 million in international territories, bringing its global total to a killer $132 million. Don’t think The Croods is down for the count, though, as it still manages to hold on to the top 2 spot with a $26.6 million weekend, bringing its cume to a civilized $88.8 million Stateside and $227 million worldwide. Meanwhile Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful still attracted masses to its colorful 3-D ride at No. 5 with another $11.7 million, and a $198.4 million cume in its fourth weekend.
