BOX OFFICE ACTUALS: 'Die Hard' Makes Triple the Take of 'Beautiful Creatures'

on February 21, 2013

All three big debuts managed to crack the top four of the Russian box office this weekend, but the competition wasn't even close. A Good Day to Die Hard trounced its rivals -- the teen supernatural romance Beautiful Creatures and the tsunami drama The Impossible -- with the overwhelming take of $6.6 million in an otherwise slow weekend. In second place, Beautiful Creatures made $2.2 million, exactly a third of the Bruce Willis actioner, while The Impossible made just $863K to notch itself into fourth place, not enough to beat last week's solid new entrant, the 3D cartoon Gladiators of Rome. The challenge for Die Hard is to cling to the top position next week despite formidable new releases Dark Skies, The Last Stand, and the Russian subway thriller Metro.
