The box office for the 2013 Easter weekend was carried on the brawny shoulders of Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum.

"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" handily won the weekend with a three-day gross of $41.2 million and a four-day take of $51.7 million, according to an estimate from distributor Paramount Pictures.

Also aiding the weekend's totals was the animated family-friendly film "The Croods" from DreamWorks Animation, which pulled in $26.5 million in its second weekend in release. It had an estimated two-week total of $88.6 million.

Meanwhile, Tyler Perry continued his solid track record at the box office, grossing an estimated $22.3 million for his film "Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor," which centers on a love triangle gone wrong and features the stunt casting of Kim Kardashian.
