Your weekend box office:

1. G.I. Joe: Retaliation - $41.2 million, handily beating Christ: Resurrection, that 3D re-release coming in just behind Identity Thief.

4. Olympus Has Fallen - $14 million. Olympus has fallen, but the profits sure haven't! Actually, they dropped over 50%. I just thought that would sound catchy.

5. Oz: The Great and Powerful - $11.6 million, just beating newcomer The Host. The name "writer of The Twilight Saga" just doesn't hold as much water as it used to.
