‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’, starring Dwayne Johnson, grossed a strong $15.5m on Good Friday to secure control of the North American box office. Paramount’s action sequel has now taken $26m since its Thursday opening and should double that figure by Sunday night.
DreamWorks’ 3D animation, ‘The Croods’, had a very good second Friday hold with a return of $10.7m. It represents a fall of just 8% and the prehistoric adventure is on course for a $29m weekend.
‘Tyler Perry’s Temptation’, starring Jurnee Smollett, was the second highest opener and exceeded expectations on $9.4m. The bored housewife drama should take $22m over the three days.
The other wide opener, ‘The Host’, adapted from Twilight author Stephenie Meyer’s novel of the same name, grossed a disappointing $5.5m in fourth place. The action adventure is heading for a lacklustre $13m weekend.
The specialist market saw ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’, starring Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, grossing a strong $95,000 from four locations. Derek Cianfrance’s follow-up to ‘Blue Valentine’ should finish the three days over $260k.sildalis canada buysildalis in usabuy sildalis usasildalis usa
