The World Guarantees GI Joe Sequel

Illustration for article titled The World Guarantees GI Joe Sequel

Apparently, pre-release fears about GI Joe being too America-centric were way off the mark; two weeks after its release, it's still the #1 movie internationally, even as it tumbles down the US charts.

Variety reports the somewhat surprising news that Joe had grossed $91.6 million internationally by this time last week, almost matching the movie's US take of $98.6 million, something which, according to studio Paramount, is definitely a strong enough base from which to launch a franchise. Think about that next time someone complains about US cultural imperialism.

Do they think the movie's supposed to be ironic? Is it a global hipster movement, showing their distaste by throwing money at it?

Or maybe people just underestimate Dennis Quaid's starpower.
