Well, well, well…
It looks as though the delayed G.I. Joe: Retaliation was worth the almost-year-long wait, after the studio pulled it from its original summer 2012 release to warrant a 3D conversion!
The Rock and Channing Tatum-starring action sequel made its much-anticipated debut this weekend at the TOP of the box office, pulling in $41.2 million between Friday and today…and $51.7 million if you include Thursday night premieres!
And if you include the overseas figures, we're talking $132 million…the biggest worldwide opener of 2013!
Not too shabby, right?!
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for The Host, which didn't come close to competing with the weeks-old Oz The Great and Powerful!
Stephenie Meyer's sci-fi version of Twilight made a weak $11, placing it at #6 in the box office top ten!
