G.I. Joe: Retaliation has smashed this Easter weekend’s box office with a gross of $51.7 million!

According to THR, the Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum action flick is now the second-best domestic Easter gross ever, right behind 2010′s Clash of the Titans.

Coming in at number two was the animated film The Croods, earning $26.5 million in its second week of release and bringing its total to $88.6 million.

The number three slot went to Tyler Perry‘s Temptation, which grossed $22.3 million in its debut week.

Rounding out the top five were the Gerard Butler-led film Olympus Has Fallen and Oz the Great and Powerful, which made $14 million and $11.6 million, respectively.

Meanwhile, The Host, which stars Diane Kruger, Jake Abel, Max Irons, and Saoirse Ronan, brought in $11 million in its opening weekend.

The Host couldn’t even get in the top 5? Oops. What was Saoirse thinking?

Laughing because ‘The Host’ must have spent so much on this site alone for paid posts of Diane Kruger and her boy toy – as well as trailer advertisements and it did nothing to help the box office numbers for it.

“The Host” finished sixth with 11 million at the box office. This sounds like “Twilight” fatigue. That franchise has been derided as a hot mess over the years, as well as the book series. When people realized this movie was based on something Stephenie Meyers written the public decided to stay away from that theater in the multiplex.

@Tammy:

Diane Kruger wasn’t even on the movie poster dude. You act as if she was solely the whole movie, she wasn’t. It was marketed as a love story triangle like Twilight, and it was written by Stephanie Meyers. Teen girl audiences are obviously sick of her after they dragged out Twilight for so long.

It’s dreck material and most people have said that Saoirse and Diane are the best parts of it.

This site isn’t all that, and Diane is only made popular on here by the few who troll continuously on her posts over and over. I doubt people even give her a second look anymore on here because JJ feel the need to post her continuously. There are other sites which are much more popular than this one and she barely registers on them.

They push certain movies on here, but just because they push them, doesn’t mean it’s going to make any difference at the box office. For you to imply that is laughable. As usual your hatred of Diane is showing through and that is what your post is really about. LOL.

@jenya: I hope for the sake of Saoirse Ronan’s career that there isn’t a sequel. I wouldn’t want to wish a film to bomb though, people do put effort into these films no matter what the outcome it.

@Anon: the best parts of film were Saoirse Ronanand William Hurt:

“As for the acting, Ronan does a decent job of conveying her character’s split personality, at least compared to “Twilight’s” Kristen Stewart, who seems to have one speed: mope. And William Hurt is okay as Jeb, the leader of the human resistance. But much of the rest of the cast is wooden, and I’m not just talking about the pod people.”

I want to see “City of Bones” with Lena Headey and Lily Collins

@Gi joe:

Oh did you change your name again.

I’m not talking about critics, I’m talking about general audience comments. To me, that’s the people who really count, because it’s word of mouth about a movie that makes or breaks it.

Isn’t today, Sunday, part of the Weekend?

@Anon: Before you jump to conclusions, in my post I was referring to THIS site and her paid posts AND the trailer advertisements that were on THIS site. I was making that comment b/c she’s posted on here all the time (or when she’s trying to land a new project.) So my post was based in sarcasm. Thanks for making it something it wasn’t though. Oh, and for teaching me about movie marketing.

I wasn’t and you jumped to conclusions. You made a statement about this site and I was refuting how important you think this site is. It’s just a site and I’m sure people are going to go out and see a movie because it’s advertised on this site. (Insert sarcasm). You know the movie was advertised everywhere and not just here. Like any movie that has a national role out.

Like someone else said on here it was advertised heavily in theatres and that trailer would reach a lot more people than this site ever would. Plus people who are not interested in Diane wouldn’t even bother to look at her posts on here.
