Bruce Willis takes over the box office again… earning the top spit with his latest action sequel, A Good Day To Die Hard.

The action franchise earned the #1 ranking at the weekend box office with a $25 million haul, in which John McClane (Willis) travels to Russia to help out his seemingly wayward son, Jack, only to discover that Jack is a CIA operative working to prevent a nuclear-weapons heist.

A Good Day To Die Hard comes 25 years after the original Die Hard and six years after “Live Free or Die Hard.

Last weekend’s #1 movie, Universal’s comedy Identity Thief starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, fell to #2 but in a close race, earning $23.4 million to lift its domestic total to $70.7 million.

Debuting at #3 with $21.4 million was Relativity Media’s romance, Safe Haven, starring Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel in an adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel about a woman who flees her abusive husband and takes up with a sensitive widower. Since opening on Valentine’s Day, Safe Haven has taken in $30.3 million.

The animated Escape from Planet Earth opened at #4 with $16.1 million. It features a voice cast that includes Brendan Fraser, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker and Rob Corddry, and follows the adventures of aliens captured by the U.S. military.

Closing out the top 5 is Warm Bodies, taking in another $8.8 million to bring its total to $50 million.

Finally, making a weak debut at #6 was the Warner Bros. teen fantasy Beautiful Creatures, which pulled in $7.5 million for the weekend and $10 million since opening Thursday. The movie is based on the first in the best-selling series about a Southern misfit (Alden Ehrenreich) who falls under the spell of a teen witch (Alice Englert).

That’s a wrap for this weekend. This upcoming week, look out for the release of the horror-thriller Dark Skies, and The Rock’s Snitch.
