Bruce Willis - Die Hard Sequel Explodes At U.k. Box Office
Bruce Willis' new Die Hard movie has blown away the competition at the U.K. box office 25 years after the first picture hit cinemas.
A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth installment in the action franchise, earned $7.2 million (£4.5 million) over the weekend (15-17Feb13), proving Hollywood tough guy Willis has lost none of his appeal a quarter of a century on from the 1988 original.
The movie knocked Wreck-It Ralph into second place, with the animated kids' comedy trailing the Die Hard sequel at $5.5 million (£3.4 million).
Judd Apatow's new comedy This Is 40 debuted at three with takings of $1.9 million (£1.2 million), leaving movie musical Les Miserables behind at four with $1.8 million (£1.1 million).
Supernatural film Beautiful Creatures rounded out the top five with earnings of $1.7 million (£1.1 million).
Danny Dyer's new movie Run for Your Wife failed to touch the chart following its Friday (15Feb13) release - it earned just $963 (£602) from nine cinema venues.
