Opening in 7000 theaters would have blown away the record for the widest release ever, by a couple thousand theaters. Don't know where you got that number from, but it's completely bogus, unless you're talking about 7000 screens worldwide...in which case its' $66 million (plus the amounts that haven't been added in yet on boxofficemojo) overseas take is very good indeed, given that 4000 of those theaters were in the US.
Plus, Harry Potter and Transformers would have opened on far more than the numbers quoted above if you incorporate all their international screens. Probably close to 8000 screens total for each.

The movie had what 'toys' in it?
In order of most expensive to least.
The PIT - This toy does not exist in the movie in this rendition at 99.99 a mobile Pit was not represented in the movie, nor the dungeonesque features. General Hawk figure is represented in the movie, but the fig is a weak likeness and does not stand up to the single carded one.
The RHINO - Mentioned in the battle for the case however not represented as it was in the toy, so it's not a match and would be lost to those that aren't familiar with the name. Figure that comes with it was not represented either.
The NightRaven - Perfect toy tie in, but a little too expensive. My original NightRaven i got for Christmas was far superior in every way and cost half as much. The Strato-Viper was not in the movie either.
Bravo Class - DragonHalk, Crimson Hydra, IceDagger, All no shows in the movie aswell as their figures. While the SteelCrusher and the Airship do make an appearance, their figures do not.
Alpha Class - Mole Pod, RockSlide both appear, figures do not, while the Armadillo and figure along with the SnakeTrax and ScrapIron do not appear at all.
Then the figures - Shipwreck, Crimson Vipers, Destro, Wetsuit, Ice Viper All do not appear in the movie while Hawk, Duke x 3, Ripcord, Heavy Duty x 2, Scarlet x 2, SnakeEyes x 2, Viper and Elite Viper, Eels, Baroness x 2, StormShadow x 3, Sgt Stone, Covergirl, Zartan, Cobra Commander, Pit Commando (loosely accepted), Breaker all do.
Other Target Exclusives - All four current Target exclusives do not appear in the movie.
Leave out other exclusives.
SO I state this, a good majority of the "current" product line does not even appear in the movie at all. I had hoped that there would be more toy commercial in the movie but it wasnt like that. At least in Transformers, the horrid movie it was, had all the toys.
I should add, the giant firing spring loaded junk we got with each figure seeming has more place in the movie than half the line with the similarity to the giant gun SS carried to fire at the Tower.

Yeah, I enjoyed it but that does not mean its a great movie.
So I don't care to argue if the theaters takes 90% or 40% of ticket sales......mathematically they still need to catch up to both numbers if you want to see a profit.
All this does is put a sequel in jeopardy. For example nobody had to wonder if a sequel to transformers would be made.... everyone just knew. it came and it destroyed the boxoffice. GI JOE is still up for debate - so that should tell us something.

I don't think RoC was meant to be a successful film and stand on it's own two feet.
The purpose of RoC was to jumpstart the Joe brand and create a new generation of Joefan.

Ok for those tha are interested i checked the sales for last week(sale week) and they were very good. Asst a(main one) sold 48,000 plus and the asst b(much smaller asst) sold about 18,000. awesome sales. Thats almost 70,000 figures just last week. We have been averaging about 40,000 each week before this. The asst a are down to about 457,000 company wide and the asst b are down to around 20,000 company. I know i read a few people say something like these are selling like indiana jones and that is a complete joke. They've sold more joes in a 2 week period than indiana sold total. The movie is doing average but the toys are selling great. I saw 2 kids yesterday buying 2 of the deluxe figures(not in the movie). Great to see.
