I can see that. I am kind of thinking the story might be hokey as hell (cant help it...i mean come on Marlon freakin Wayans? are you kidding me?) but the effects and action may do the trick.

This movie will probably at least make it's money back. And I think it will sell a bunch of DVD's.
I don't see it bombing (pun intended), but this will not be a crazy big movie. i predict just enough for a sequel.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?
The Reign of Tears has begun! Check out my original G.I.Joe story!

And anyone who thinks that a major push for a movie cannot backfire, only look back at Speed Racer from last year, it did nothing.
Early August can be a bad month, after several months of people seeing loads of movies, usually more than once, there may be not much interest in more big summer blockbusters.
The real problem the film has is, will this be taken serious by non Joe fans, from a personal standpoint, the friends and family members I know have a "why should I see that movie?" attitude towards it.
The toys better help it, because word of mouth, if bad, will sink this baby fast.

1. I don't think G.I. Joe is going to do Dark Knight numbers, but the fact that Dark Knight made over $85 million dollars from August 7 to August 31st proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that people will still go to movies in large numbers in August if they want to. Want a lower-profile example? The Bourne Ultimatum - Opened the first weekend in August, went on to make 227 million in box-office grosses. Rush Hour 2 and Signs both opened in August and went on to $200 million plus domestic box office takes. People still go to movies in August, even in large numbers: Proven Fact.
2. The recession has not been having an appreciable affect on box office grosses this year. In fact, box office grosses have been up for the year so far. This is not a new phenomenon, as the Great Depression was considered a "golden age" where cinema was concerned. People like escapist fare in hard times. Subsequent smaller recessions have also proven to have little or no effect on Hollywood's revenue stream. There's a reason movies are regarded as "Recession Proof." There is little to no reason to believe this recession will be different, and in fact there is already evidence that strongly suggests it will follow the exact same mold.

I'm guessing 35 to 40 million the first week. And then a huge drop off. Total will be around 75 million.

Anecdotal evidence doesn't provide much evidence at all. Your friends might not be keen on it, my friends are very interested. Beyond that, the marketing hasn't even really kicked off yet.

RoC and the Joe movie franchise is the next Mummy.
Alot of people hate those movies, but there even more that like them because of the type of movie they are: pure escapism and fun adventure movies.
Mummy had 2 sequals, a toyline and a cartoon. Now Mummy has died out because there was nothing to keep it going, Joe will have the toyline so that when the sequal comes out, it'll be even bigger.

I see it doing pretty decent. I don't' see it being a HUGE Titanic Success, but I think between Box Office and DVD, we'll get a sequel, trilogy, maybe not, but sequel, yeah.
