Die Hard

A Good Day to Die Hard - which director George Tillman Jr was originally offered and turned down because it was "too dumb" - was the No. 1 film this weekend.

The film is, without question, the worst and the worst reviewed of all the Die Hard films, but it stilll beat out Safe Haven and the Twilight wanna-be Beautiful Creatures. However this new Die Hard is almost certain to drop big next weekend.

As for Creatures, co-starring Viola Davis, it pretty much tanked this weekend. Needless to say, unlike Twilight, there aren't going to be any other Beaufitul Creatures sequels to follow.
