The DailySuperHero.com: G.I. Joe Retaliation is the box office champ raking in an estimated $51.7 million, domestically and $132 million Internationally, since its release. Unfortunately, it fell short of the first movie's opening weekend box office take of $54.7 million but that's understandable. Reason being is due to G.I. Joe Rise of Cobra failing the fan base in so many ways that it probably scared off many of them from going to see it at all. Eyeball removal was probably considered by many fans after the first debacle.
