Despite the above-and-beyond efforts of the critical community — I actually told a stranger in a coffee shop not to bother with it yesterday — A Good Day to Die Hard earned $25 million to easily win its opening weekend, certifying that even the possibility of total extinction couldn’t put people in a place to consider maybe not seeing a terrible, unnecessary sequel.
Well, fine. Let the people have their mediocrity. I’ll be over here grousing about the sorry state of cinema in a corner of the coffee shop. Oh, wait, I was doing that already.
Also, the utterly reviled Identity Thief took second place with $23.4 million. Fuck it, bring on the asteroid.
