<i>Evil Dead</i> Buries <i>G.I. Joe</i>

Last weekend, Paramount Pictures' G.I. Joe: Retaliation not only took the top spot, but also earned $41 million, plus an extra $10 thanks to an early Thursday opening. However, the film couldn't make a repeat performance, and wound up losing the box-office throne to Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead, grossed $26 million domestically and $30.5 million worldwide.

Although it slipped to the No. 2 spot, Retaliation still earned $21.1 million, which put it neck and neck with DreamWorks Animation's The Croods. The only other "new" release to crack the Top 5 was Universal's 3D re-release of Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, which made just shy of $18.3 million. Olympus Has Fallen also dropped from fourth to fifth after earning $10 million.

This week's new films include the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 as well as the horror comedy Scary Movie 5. The Scary Movie films have been huge box office performers earning $150 million collectively on their previous opening weekends and $428 million total.
