Yeah, looks like my initial estimate of around $65 million for the weekend was way off. It appears the film was quite front-loaded ($22,250,000 on Friday, $18,250,000 on Saturday, and $15,700,000 on Sunday), which leads me to think this movie probably won't have legs at the box office.

I still haven't seen it... and I doubt I will. Even when I was a kid in the 80s/90s, I never cared much for G.I. Joe, and the ads I've seen for this film don't really appeal to me. So I think I'll pass.
