I have no idea! It's really hard to say.
1. Joe fans had universal hate towards the toy line but as soon as it came out it changed to love. That will most likely be the same with the movie.
2. I actually have kids getting in my way in the stores. I never have kids getting in my way but lately I can't get to the GI Joe figures because kids are all over them.
I'll say somewhere around 50 mil opening weekend & after that I have no idea. Depends on the word of mouth & the kids.

Now, the box office means nothing for my personal enjoyment of the movie. The box office could tank and I could still like it or the box office could soar and I could not like it.

Well, August has never been a huge month for blockbuster type movies, so that will hurt it a little bit I think, but the fact that nothing else is really coming out after it will help some.
As far as August movies go, I think something like Rush Hour 3, which came out two years ago, will be a pretty good indicator. It made $49 million opening weekend, $140 million US, and $118 million overseas.
I would say that both these movies have a similar audience, but GI Joe has a morededicated fanbase, which should help.
$55 million +- $5 million opening weekend
$160 million +- $10 million US
$120 million +- $10 million overseas
More then enough to justify a sequal.

I'm looking back on the first TF for some kind of guidance. I'd guess $50-$60 million opening weekend, no point in predicting beyond that until we see what kind of word of mouth it has.
From what I recall, not being part of the fan/collector community at the time, TF was pretty well reviled by the purists, and that took in $65 million in its first three days (starting on a Monday? before July 4), and ended up over $300 million. So who knows.
