Box Office: ‘G.I. Joe’ Captures $10.5 Million Thursday

3D pic pacing for $50 million domestic over four-day weekend

G.I. Joe: Retaliation” was again the top gun at the domestic box office Thursday, grossing an estimated $10.5 million from 3,719 locations.

Paramount’s sequel to the 2009 actioner, starring Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis, is on track for a four-day haul of $50 million Stateside after earning an A- Cinemascore with auds (the first installment’s Cinemascore was B+).

Budgeted at $130 million, “G.I. Joe” expands to 53 day-and-date markets Friday, repping 75% of the international arena, and should cross the $100 million worldwide by the end of the weekend.

3D pic, co-produced by MGM and Skydance, is also playing at 302 Imax locations domestically.

Other new releases Friday include Open Road’s “The Host” and the Tyler Perry pic “Temptation” from Lionsgate.

Fox-DreamWorks Animation’s “The Croods” should continue to click with families this Easter weekend for a projected high-$20 millions sophomore frame. The 3D toon, which debuted to $43 domestically, proved equally appealing overseas, with a current worldwide total of $133 million.

In limited release, Focus Features’ drama  “The Place Beyond on the Pines” opens in New York and L.A. Friday while IFC’s “Room 237,” the doc on Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining,” bows in Gotham.
