    It wasn't intending to. $22m isn't exactly small change.

    i really don't care about GI joe and i actually want it to fail,i only used GI joe in the thread title because 22 million is rather crappy for a movie that was expected to get a 40 million opening.

    WOW! All the hate for G.I. Joe.....:wtf: 

    Don't people realize the more movies like TF & G.I. Joe do well the better the chances of other movies being made that would never see the light of day...

    You forget that some of those other movies never see the light of day FOR A REASON.

    I don't expect GI Joe to make as much money as RotF. It's probably indicative of something when the appearance of the movie's name in the trailer caused the friend next to me in the cinema to burst out laughing.

    ROTF being out of the Top 10 was going to happen anyway. But I am surprise about GI Joe only brought $22 million.

    There really should not be that much hate for GI Joe

    IMDB States (and while that is not always accurate, in this case I think it is true):

    Yes it is. There won't be anything blatant, like General Hawk talking to Optimus or Megatron and the Decepticons aiding Cobra, but the novelization reveals that Zartan gains his morphing ability when he is injected with stolen nanomites that Sector Seven derived during their study of Megatron and the AllSpark.

    Originally, Brig. General Clayton "Hawk" Abernathy (still played by Dennis Quaid) was going to be in charge of NEST in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which would evolve into G.I. Joe once the Decepticon threat was eliminated, but this was changed in later drafts. A second idea (which was inexplicably dropped right before shooting began for ROTF) involved Major William "Wild Bill" Lennox talking to Gen. Hawk on the phone after the battle in Shanghai and Duke saying something along the lines of "At least they're not robots that turn into cars," when Hawk and Scarlett show him and Ripcord the very Iron Man-esque accelerator suits.

    Also, the pick-up truck the Joes climb out of when the Rattlers do their strafing run looks suspiciously like Ironhide's alt-mode (a GMC Topkick), but that may just be a coincidence.

    actually GI Joe is much worse,because the humor isn't sexual jokes like transformers,its just cheesy kiddy jokes and the action is the only thing that makes it entertaining while with transformers the action is atleast 80% of the entertainment while the other 20% is just things like robot humor and swearing.

    So your bitching about the movie then I'm assuming and not the concept of the franchise. And again you are only stating your opinion that half-assed sexual jokes and gags are better than "kiddie humor" as you put it.

    Edit: and you're profile says you are 10 years old... I would think the kiddie jokes would appeal to you.

    Again I ask why? And are you referring to the whole franchise or just the movie?
