    Box Office: 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Takes The Easter Weekend Top Slot

    “G.I. Joe: Retaliation" had every reason to fail and flop much like its bumped 2012 tentpole predecessor "Jack The Giant Slayer" which audiences turned their noses up to earlier this year. Like 'Jack' the film was pushed off its initial release date and drew bad publicity for its delays and talk of...

    Box Office: 'G.I. Joe' Delivers Very Good Friday; 'Place Beyond the Pines' Has Excellent Limited Opening; 'The Host' Disappoints

    Last weekend's two $30-million openers have been followed by a strong Easter weekend that looks to top last year's. Led by Paramount's delayed release of "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (with 3-D added and a beefed-up role for Channing Tatum), Friday's top ten films grossed an estimated $54 million, up from...

    What Are You Seeing This Weekend? 'The Host' & 'Place Beyond The Pines' May Spark 'Retaliation' Or 'Temptation'

    There ain't nothing like some bad behavior to kick off a stellar weekend. You know -- by cutting class, or taking a walk of shame, or going to work hungover on Friday morning. Or, as the movie stars like to do it, by killing some dudes, pulling off a bank job, stealing a dog, and implanting a jellyf...

    Immersed in Movies: Stepping Up the VFX for 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation'

    After viewing the bang-bang antics of "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," it made perfect sense that Jon Chu became the director. His dance experience with "Step Up 2: The Streets" and "Step Up 3D" provided the perfect training for the choreographed action he devised for the "G.I. Joe" sequel starring newcomer...

    G.I. JOE: RETALIATION

    I have a terrible confession to make: I missed the first G.I. Joe movie four years ago. That means I can’t compare the details and nuances of that screenplay and the new release, "G.I. Joe: Retaliation." But I can still review it.

    Review: 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Is No Masterpiece, But Popcorn Entertainment That Redeems The Series Somewhat

    It’s tough to say if I would be as generous with my praise of “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” if I weren’t such a big fan of its director, Jon M. Chu, but given the mechanical one-dimensionality of most big-budget franchise films, the sequel earns its critical bona fides simply by being made by a director w...

    Watch: Muscles, Ninjas & Car Chases In New Clips From 'Pain & Gain,' 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' & 'The Host'

    It's Sunday afternoon TV clip round-up time. Here we go. Paramount has released a new “Pain & Gain” TV spot. As Michael Bay’s take on the relatively low-budget comedic crime film, the TV spot is chock-full of sunned muscles and imminent chase scenes (hinted at through boats, cop cars, and helicopter...

    Watch: 4 Minutes Of Ninja Fighting In New Clip From 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation'

    There isn't much you need to actually know about "G.I. Joe: Retaliation." There are no books to read, or mythology to know and hell, you probably didn't even have to see its predecessor, "G.I. Joe: Rise Of The Cobra." But one thing you should probably know as you make your decision to buy a ticket i...
