LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bruce Willis remains a die-hard at the box office.

Willis’ action sequel “A Good Day to Die Hard” debuted as the weekend’s top draw with a $25 million debut from Friday to Sunday. The 20th Century Fox release raised its domestic total to $33.2 million since opening Thursday for Valentine’s Day to get a jump on the long President’s Day weekend.

The previous weekend’s No. 1 movie, Universal’s comedy “Identity Thief,” ran a close second with $23.4 million to lift its haul to $70.7 million.

Debuting at No. 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.

The Weinstein Co. animated adventure “Escape from Planet Earth” opened at No. 4 with $16.1 million.
