FIRST NUMBERS: 'A Good Day to Die Hard' Predicted to Take #1 in Russia

on February 17, 2013

die_hard.jpgWith the Valentines Day weekend coming to an end, the first numbers coming in from Russia indicate that A Good Day to Die Hard should take the weekend in a clean sweep with $6.7 million across 1,693 screens, the Bruce Willis flick's third-highest international opening after the UK and Japan. However, in both of those two countries, A Good Day to Die Hard opened on half the screens -- 845 and 641 respectively -- indicating much lower per-screen interest in the fifth installment of the franchise, despite its Russian setting. The early word was the negative reviews may have affected Good Day's box office in Russia, however the film's opening has already outpaced the better-reviewed Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol, which opened at $5.9 million during Christmas 2011.
