'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Returns to First Place on Tuesday

on April 03, 2013 by Daniel Garris

After falling to second place on Monday, Paramount's G.I. Joe Retaliation returned to the top of the daily box office on Tuesday with $4.01 million. The 3D action sequel featuring Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis was down 12 percent from Monday and has now led the daily box office for five of the past six days. The six-day total for G.I. Joe: Retaliation stands at a solid $59.57 million. That places the film 11 percent behind the $71.89 million six-day start of 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which was more expensive than Retaliation, but also didn't have the advantage of higher priced 3D admissions.

The Croods fell one spot and 23 percent from Monday to place in second on Tuesday with $3.87 million. The 3D computer animated film from Fox and DreamWorks Animation was also down 23 percent from last Tuesday. The Croods has grossed $97.76 million through twelve days of release and is set to surpass the $100 million domestic mark today. The film is currently running 14 percent ahead of the $86.06 million twelve-day take of 2011's Rio and 3 percent behind the $101.25 million twelve-day gross of 2010's How to Train Your Dragon.

Tyler Perry's Temptation held steady in third with $1.83 million. The latest Tyler Perry film from Lionsgate fell 17 percent from Monday. With a five-day start of $25.69 million, Temptation continues to perform a bit stronger than widely anticipated before its release. Temptation is currently running 11 percent ahead of the $23.14 million five-day take of 2008's Meet the Browns and 25 percent behind the $34.40 million five-day gross of 2010's Why Did I Get Married Too?

Olympus Has Fallen held up well on Tuesday, as the action thriller from FilmDistrict moved up one spot from Monday to finish in fourth with $1.65 million. Olympus Has Fallen was down just 2 percent form Monday and was down 46 percent from last Tuesday. The film has grossed a stronger than expected $58.22 million in twelve days and will hope to continue to stabilize going forward with the initial rush out for G.I. Joe: Retaliation now out of the way.

Oz: The Great and Powerful was down one spot to round out Tuesday's top five with $1.56 million. Disney's 3D fantasy blockbuster fell 16 percent from Monday and 42 percent from last Tuesday. Oz: The Great and Powerful is currently the highest grossing release of 2013 with a 26-day domestic take of $201.79 million.
