A Good Day To Die Hard

A Good Day To Die Hard

A Good Day To Die Hard has toppled Identity Thief from the top of the U.S. box office.

A Good Day To Die Hard is the fifth film in the action franchise and sees Bruce Willis return to the role of John McClane for the first time since 2007.

The film took $25 million in it's opening weekend to hold off the challenge from comedy Identity Thief.

Identity Thief sees Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman join comedy forces but spent just a week in the top spot.

It did take a further $23.4 million over the weekend to slip just a single place to number two.

Safe Haven is the latest Nicholas Sparks novel to be adapted for the big screen and it was new at three while animation Escape From Planet Earth was also new in at four.

Former number one Warm Bodies fell three places this week as it rounded off the top five.

Beautiful Creatures was the fourth and final new entry inside the top ten this week as it opened at number six.

Side Effects, Silver Linings Playbook and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters were all down four places this week at seven, eight and nine.

While Zero Dark Thirty rounded off the top ten at ten after slipping three places from last week's number seven.
