The "Die Hard 5" box office was good enough to take first place in its opening weekend. So far the "Die Hard 5" box office has totaled an estimated $33.24 million in four days according to a report from Box Office Mojo on Monday (Feb. 18). That includes the Feb. 14 opening, but does not take into account the holiday on Monday just yet.
For the weekend, "A Good Day to Die Hard" drew $25 million at the U.S. box office, just out-pacing "Identity Thief" in its second week. With an estimated budget of just $92 million, that's a pretty good start for the latest chapter in the Bruce Willis action series.
The foreign box office has been pretty good as well, with the film raking in an estimated $79.6 million overseas as well. That brings its current draw to an estimated $112.84 million in just the first four days. Those are really good numbers for the Feb. 15-17 weekend, as this is typically a pretty slow month for films on the whole.
Two other films also opened over the weekend, with "Safe Haven" drawing $21.43 million and "Escape From Planet Earth" pulling in $16.07 million in the early estimates. "Warm Bodies secured the first spot in its third week of release, pushing its total earnings to an estimated $50.22 million in the U.S.
The "Die Hard 5" box office is likely going to grow even further in the coming weeks and it stands a good chance to have long legs. That could lead to the film becoming an even wider success as well. For reference, the highest grossing film in the series was "Live Free or Die Hard" from 2007, which earned just under $135 million in the U.S. box office.
