G.I. Joe: Retaliation continues worldwide domination – cruises past $320M

Even now, in it’s fourth week of release, G.I. Joe: Retaliation continues to dominate International markets, mostly thanks to its debut in China this past week.  According to The Wrap, the film generated nearly $40M in International revenue, boosted by China’s whopping $33M contribution for the debut.  That amount actually puts it as the number 1 film worldwide, with Oblivion coming in a close second.

Over on the domestic side, G.I. Joe: Retaliation has now topped $111M, with a combined International and American total of $322M.  This has catapulted the sequel past the original G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and considering the budget was significantly less, this is obviously good news, especially considering Japan hasn’t even opened yet.

Check Box Office Mojo for the latest numbers.  Great news continues to emerge for the G.I. Joe film franchise, let’s hope it’s not too little too late for toys at retail.  Thanks to SkotAlderman on Twitter for the heads up.

  1. I saw that today and that is fantastic news. It will come in short of ROC’s domestic take but I don’t see that as a huge deal. There were a ton of people who went to see ROC because it was the first live action Joe movie. If Retaliation would have been first then it would have tapped into that demographic instead.
