Fans of Bruce Willis and the “Die Hard” movies are rushing out to see the movie star in “A Good Day to Die Hard.” Despite poor reviews and the press calling for the “Die Hard” movies to retire, “A Good Day to Die Hard” is doing well at the box office. According to a report dated Feb. 16 by The HDR, “A Good Day to Die Hard” and “Safe Haven” are practically tied in first place for the most seen movie over President's Day week-end.
“I love the 'Die Hard' movies,” Angie Kemp, from Oklahoma City, said. “I can't imagine Bruce Willis not making more of them. I am a huge fan of his. I have been since I saw him on 'Moonlighting' all those years ago.”
Some thought that movie-goers would skip “A Good Day to Die Hard” because of the recent comments made by Bruce Willis regarding gun control. The action star is opposed to any additional gun control and wonders if one right is taken away, which other rights Americans will also lose.
“I love the way Bruce Willis speaks his mind,” Lucas Carlson, from Oklahoma City, said. “Unlike other Hollywood types, he just says what he means and moves on. He doesn't harp on it or tries to push his opinions on others. Although he claims to be an Independent, [Bruce Willis] has Republican tendencies. It is nice to see someone in the entertainment industry lean toward the right.”
Despite those comments, “A Good Day to Die Hard” is doing well at the box office. At the time of publication, it was unknown if “A Good Day to Die Hard” will beat out “Safe Haven” this week-end. If Bruce Willis and his supporters have it their way, “A Good Day to Die Hard” will end up on top this week-end.
