Die Hard sequel collects $10.1 million in first weekend

MUMBAI: Box-office receipts of 20th Century Fox‘s release of A Good Day To Die Hard, that was released in limited outlets, was the highlight of a sluggish session on the foreign theatrical circuit despite Sony‘s Django Unchained remaining No. 1 overseas for the fourth consecutive weekend.

Springing a jump on its US and Canada bow this week, the fifth installment of the action franchise starring Bruce Willis opened over the weekend in just seven Asian markets and managed to draw in $10.1 million at 1,102 locations for a per-screen average of over $9,000.

In South Korea, the opening take including previews was $4.2 million from 459 sites. The film set a Fox record in Indonesia and set a franchise record in Hong Kong ($1.2 million at 87 spots).

Over a 25-year span the four prior Die Hard titles all starring Willis have made money overseas grossing $694.6 million, while the second sequel of the franchise, 1995‘s Die Hard With A Vengeance roped in $264.5 million.

The 1988 original Die Hard drew $57.8 million in offshore box office, with the first sequel, 1990‘s Die Hard 2, grossing $122.5 million. The last sequel, 2007‘s Live Free or Die Hard, completed its foreign run with box office of $249.7 million.

Meanwhile, director Quentin Tarantino‘s Unchained collected $18.7 million from 5,280 locations in 65 markets. The action westerner co starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo Di Caprio that has acquired as many as five Oscar nominations, has grossed a total of $187.1 million since its opening.

In Germany, its best market, Unchained drew $3.9 million in its fourth round at 843 sites for a market total of $35.6 million while in France, the film has been at the No. 1 spot for four consecutive weeks with the latest weekend tally ($3.3 million) down around 33 per cent from that of the last weekend.
