Well let me say this in regards to this thread.
Based on what we've seen, and I'm one of those "movie hater" tankers, if I knew I was the person standing in line that if I bought my ticket would propel the number to the sequel point....I would get back in my car and go home and watch the old 'toons. I truly hope they don't make a sequel to what I think will be a complete letdown and a blemish on the Joe name.

Hopefully the movie won't be that terribly bad - crossing fingers.

It's really hard to say. If you take it from the perspective of people watching it that have no history or knowledge of GI JOE, the question is, will they find it enjoyable? It's obviously not made for the fans. It is a redesigned version of GI JOE, much like the Transformers. I honestly don't see what is so wrong with the original concept. I don't get it with the power suits and Snake Eyes muscle suit. Can't he just be a bad ass, dressed in black BDU's, special ops looking kind of guy that is lethal in hand to hand combat? I don't want to see him and Storm Shadow dancing around, cutting flying bullets in half with their swords. I really hope that doesn't happen. Personally, I would prefer to see a Resolute live action movie instead.
The part that bothers me the most is that GI JOE is no longer "A Real American Hero". GI JOE is now Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity. They might as well call it Global Blackwater Team.
The real money will come from the fast food tie-ins, video games, back to school stuff - backpacks, notebooks, t-shirts and the other merchandising stuff. I think the movie will do fairly well the opening weekend and then quickly fade away. I don't expect it to do any near as well as Transformers did.

The two silver linings if this film does not preform well enough at the box office for a sequel will be no more Marlon Wayans and Microsoft will reject Stuart Beattie's Halo script. Prime once gave his life to save Duke. If Snake Eyes "falls" to save the Arbiter, I could ALMOST tolerate this film if turns out to be a travesty.

This movie will make money. The casual fans aren't nearly is harsh as the people on this board. It can do $400 million worldwide no problem. Destro and the baroness look well casted, as well as SE, SS and Scarlett. As long as it doesn't look too much like street fighter and more batman begins.

i think either way there is going to be a sequel, even if the movie flops they will prolly have a new director come in to remake the movie kind of like what they did with hulk. im sure hasbro is also counting on all the merchandise as well, they keep cranking out toys like hot cakes, seems like everyday there are new toy pics up on the tank so who knows.

I'm torn, on the one hand I want it to do well, as a huge bomb will put numerous bullets in the Joe franchise in general, which is the last thing I would want. But at the same time if it's successful I fear they'll think we want more Marlon Wayans, more Accelerator Suits(which I read they'll be phasing out in sequels due to the actors difficulty while wearing them) ect. I guess the best option, and the one I'm hoping for is that it will enable Joe to become a bigger presence on toy aisles as well as in the media, and that in future sequels they FIX the problems from this one and can improve upon the movie's world and perhaps if there's a Rise of Cobra 2: Rising Higher we're excited about the stuff they're doing right this time.

box office figures don't really have that much to do with sequels as superman returns is spawning a sequel
