“A Good Day to Die Hard,” starring Bruce Willis, has been recently released in theaters in the United States and Hungary. The premiere was held in Los Angeles on January 31, 2013. The production of the movie began in Hungary in April 2012, with Budapest standing in for Moscow. A military shooting range near the town of Hajmáskér was used for shooting live ammunition, whilst vehicular stunts were shot at the Hungaroring, the Formula One racing circuit near Mogyoród. Some notable Hungarian actors – including Iván Kamarás – are featured in the movie.

Origo Studios in Budapest played host to the shoot of “A Good Day to Die Hard” and has supplied local production services on such recent international productions as Angelina Jolie's directorial debut “In The Land of Blood and Honey.” German production services company Bavaria Film Group has signed a new partnership deal with Origo that will see the two operations share services for major international productions across Europe. “Film subsidies in Hungary and Germany have different focuses that, within the framework of this cooperation, can be optimally combined for our clients,” said Origo Film Group CEO in the Hollywood Reporter.
