Box Office Breakdown: Latest ‘Die Hard’ Film Barely Outperforms ‘Identify Thief’

A Good Day to Die Hard

This weekend apparently weren't good enough days for Die Hard.

Though the latest installment in the Bruce Willis-fronted Die Hard series debuted at number one this weekend with $25 million, it barely made more than the runner-up (and last week's number one film) Identity Thief, which took in $23.4 million. The Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough romantic vehicle Safe Haven opened to the number three spot with $21.4 million. The animated film Escape from Planet Earth was also a newcomer this weekend, earning $16 million to secure its place at number four while Warm Bodies slipped three spots to number five with $9 million.
