Bruce Willis’s latest Die Hard installment , A Good Day to Die Hard , came in first place at the box office this weekend. However, it was not the blow out executives hoped for.
The Wrap reports the fifth Die Hard film is on track to rake in about $39 million this weekend starting from last Thursday. This is still $11 million away from the $50 million analysts predicted.
A Good Day to Die Hard barely made it to the top when faced with fierce competition this weekend. The Melissa McCarthy-Jason Bateman film Identity Thief took second place with $23.4 million over the weekend.
Safe Haven , the romance/suspense starring Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel, took in $21.5 million between Friday and Sunday.
The Wall Street Journal reported a statement made by President of the Box-office Division of Hollywod.com Paul Dergarabedian.
On Willis’s latest Die Hard film, Dergarabedian said, ““Bruce Willis as John McClane in the ‘Die Hard’ franchise is still a draw some 25 years after the first installment hit theaters and made Willis a movie star. “While his aging action star compatriots have met with audience indifference of late, Willis (particularly in this role) is still a draw as an action hero.”
All three of these films are currently playing nationwide.
