Weekend Report, February 19, 2013

Identity Thief and Safe Haven very nearly stole John McClane's thunder. A Good Day to Die Hard, while still #1 for the weekend, failed to meet studio projections, while its more female-skewing competition looked very strong. The fifth installment in Bruce Willis' Die Hard series performed far better than this year's offerings from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, but this is clear indication that the Planet Hollywood braintrust is no longer a sure bet at the box office.
