(Newser) – If you were among those who helped GI Joe: Retaliation hit the $132 million mark over Easter weekend and you're already suffering withdrawal, don't worry: Another movie is on its way. Paramount has given the green light to a third GI Joe flick, insiders tell Variety. Retaliation raked in 35% more worldwide than the first film did in its opening days—a bump Variety attributes to the follow-up's 3D-nature and the increased ticket prices that come with it. Variety's prediction: The next film will be 3D, too.
