“G.I. Joe” In Command At Weekend Box Office

LOS ANGELES (March 31, 2013)--The action film "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum occupied the No. 1 position at the weekend box office, earning $41.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The sequel to 2009's "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" was postponed last year to convert the film to 3-D.

"Retaliation" opened Wednesday, which helped to bring its domestic total to $51.7 million.

The animated prehistoric comedy "The Croods" slipped to the No. 2 spot with $26.5 million in its second weekend.

"Tyler Perry's Temptation" opened with $22.3 million at No. 3, while the Stephenie Meyer sci-fi adaptation "The Host" landed at No. 6 in its debut weekend with $11 million.
