Looks like I was right about the 60 million (or just under) total?

I saw it and thought it was great. They did change some of the characters backstories (from the cartoon and comic books), but I think it works out really well.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but my friend in Nevada did. He's not too much of a GI Joe fan, but he loved it! He wants to get it when it comes out on DVD. (This guy doesn't really buy many movies, but said this one was awesome)! He wants to find time later to see it again, probably his day off. When I can, I'd like to see it soon too!

So the movie's doing well. That's a good thing. You may or may not like it (or the idea of it), but the one thing that benefits all is that if the movie does well, then they'll be more likely to start investing in some more vehicles and playsets. Or put money into digging up things from the past, like more vehickes and playsets. Or re-do some of the old molds for more VEHICLES AND PLAYSETS!!! (Logic based on if the movie bombed, that would have been Hasbro's excuse out of it!) :)

i hope we do get some cool figs and vehicles out of it, but the movie was ooooook. Nowhere near great, but not altogether terrible

Actually The movie did just over 100 million worldwide this weekend (Number 1 in China and Russia). That is what you call success.

If the movie has already made $125 million worldwide then it is a shoe in for a sequel.

it just made 108mil all together. also they had no real compaction that opened up with it. so of course it would make big money.
