The film, based on the US version of the toy figure Action Man, stars Dennis Quaid and Sienna Miller2.

Meryl Streep film Julie and Julia entered the chart at number two, with box office receipts(单据,进款) of $20.1m (£12.1m).

Last week's number one, Adam Sandler and Seth Rogan's Funny People, dropped to number five.

G-Force held firm at number three, while Harry3 Potter and the Half-Blood Prince dropped to four from number two.

Paramount4 decided5 not to allow critics to see GI Joe before its general release, mainly because of the poor reviews for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen earlier in the year.

Despite that, it went on to make over $400m (£240m) at the North American box office.

"The thing we saw from Transformers is that with these kind of movies, at times critics have a hard time getting their arms around them," said Rob Moore, Paramount vice6 chairman.

"But the audience got exactly what it was. A fun summer movie."

Julie and Julia, based on two memoirs7, stars Streep as celebrated8 chef Julia Child and Amy Adams as a woman who uses Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking to improve her life.

The only other new entry was thriller9 A Perfect Gateway10 starring Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich at number seven.

Summer box office receipts are down by 1% on the same period last year.
