411 Box Office Report: A Good Day to Die Hard Limps to #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.17.2013

It wasn't a happy number, but A Good Day to Die Hard still won a crowded box office weekend. The fifth film in the Die Hard franchise took the top spot with $25 million, below what was hoped for from the film. That equates to an average of $7,036 from 3,553 theaters. The film's opening was below that of Live Free or Die Hard's $33.4 million in 2007. The film opened on Thursday and has a total since then of $33.2 million domestically and $86.5 million worldwide. It had a budget of $92 million.

Identity Thief had an impressive second week, falling just one spot to #2. The Melissa McCarthy/Jason Bateman brought in $23.4 million for a 32% drop, which is quite good considering its higher-than-expected opening weekend and the busy marketplace. The film now has a total of $70.7 million domestically and $71.4 million worldwide from a budget of $35 million.

Opening at #3 was Safe Haven. The Nicholas Sparks-based romantic drama served as effective counter-programming against Die Hard, overperforming with $21.4 million which was an average of $6,649 from 3,223 theaters. The opening is comparable to the last Sparks film, 2012's The Lucky One which did $22.5 million. Having opened on Valentine's Day, the film has a total of $30.3 million domestically and $32.9 million worldwide from a budget of $28 million.

The Weinstein Company's Escape From Planet Earth opened at #4 with a better-than-expected $16.1 million. The animated alien-themed family film averaged $4,886 from 3,288 theaters. It had a budget of $40 million.

Warm Bodies was down three places to #5 this week to make room for the new releases. Jonathan Levine's zombie romantic comedy brought in $9 million, which made for an impressive 20% drop. The film has now grossed $50.2 million domestically and $67.9 million worldwide from a budget of $30 million.

Beautiful Creatures bombed, opening at #6 with just $7.5 million. The supernatural romantic drama, which was marketed as the next Twilight, failed to bring the Twi-hards and averaged just $2,529 from 2,950 theaters. The film has a domestic total of $10 million and a worldwide total of $15.4 million from a $60 million budget.

Steven Soderbergh's Side Effects fell four spots in its second weekend, down to #7 with $6.3 million. The psychological thriller, which starred Rooney Mara and Jude Law, had a 32% drop which is very good within the genre. The film has a total of $19.1 million from a budget was $30 million.

Silver Linings Playbook was down four spots to #4 in its fourteenth week with $6.1 million, down just 5% from last weekend. The Oscar-nominated film has now grossed $98.5 million domestically and $138 million worldwide from a budget of $21 million.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters continued the four-spot falling trend, ending up at #9 with $3.5 million. The Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton-starring dark action-fantasy has now grossed a total of $49.7 million domestically and $150.9 million worldwide from a budget of $50 million.

Zero Dark Thirty fell three spots to #10 with $3.1 million in its ninth week. Kathryn Bigelow's military thriller about the hunt for Osama Bin Ladin has now pulled in $88 million domestically and $112.1 million worldwide on a $40 million budget.

The weekend box office tally was $139.2 million, down 28% from last year's $160.9 million gross that was led by the second week of Safe House at $23.6 million.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
