BOX OFFICE: A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD Opens To $840,000 At Midnight Screenings
The latest instalment in the Die Hard franchise hasn't gone down well with critics, but 20th Century Fox probably couldn't care less as it looks set to do reasonably well at the North American box office this weekend. Hit the jump for details!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, A Good Day To Die Hard took $840,000 at midnight screenings yesterday evening as it kicks off its run at the North American box office. While this isn't a particularly impressive figure, it does beat the $725,000 that The Expendables 2 grossed last summer. The film played at 2,328 locations for an average of $361 per site and opens in 3,553 locations today; Valentine's Day. Analysts are predicting a weekend of $40 million for the fifth instalment in the popular franchise, but we all know by now just how wildly these numbers can vary, and the word of mouth more than likely won't be particularly good for this one.
Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane, for the first time, finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack – unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes discover that their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes.
