'Yippee Ki-Yay' This First 'Good Day to Die Hard' Teaser Poster Sucks

October 25, 2012

A Good Day to Die Hard

"Yippee Ki-Yay Mother F—" They have butchered this line so much since it was first used in the original, classic 1988 Die Hard. Its been regurgitated, tamed down, mutilated and now re-imagined as a tag line on this atrocious teaser poster. But there's no other way to sell a new Die Hard movie without the big, beat-up, broken face of John McClane, played by Bruce Willis. has unveiled the first teaser poster for A Good Day to Die Hard, following the explosive but still kinda badass teaser trailer from a few weeks ago, and it's not that impressive. Just a big face and an eye-rolling-inducing mutilation of the original "Yippee Ki-Yay" line. Oh well. I guess you can't have your cake and eat it, too. At least the movie itself looks great!

A Good Day to Die Hard Teaser Poster

  • Lame. But then again, I have a feeling this film will be.

    The movie DOESN'T look great. And this poster is photoshop-lazy. But the tagline is sort of cool, even though I think moving McClane out of USA will turn out to be a mistake.

    Who approved this shit?

    Thats hilarious! My phone is so slow I managed to read the first paragraph before the image popped up. To be honest, I laughed and I'm gonna tell my friends about it. Thats a success in my books
  • Clearly none of the commentors here are Die Hard fans. The 5th film looks awesome!
    • grimjob
      I'm a Die Hard fan. The 4th was ridiculous. I want to like this, but the last one left such a bad taste in my mouth, I can't trust this one. I'll see it the theater, fingers crossed, but I have almost no faith. Did you actually like the 4th?
      • Hell yes! Obviously not as much as 1 or 3 but it was miles better than 2.
        • grimjob
          2 is definitely weaker than 1 and 3, but I gotta take it over 4. At least it had William Sadler, he's always great. But its cool, to each his own.
  • I'm a fan of John McClane but this poster (despite the intention) sucks. Just white text and overlay. Come on!
  • It's almost 2013, can we drop the 'stacked text on face' look?
  • ... it's a funny poster. And about the text on top of people's face, well, Die Hard 2 and Die Hard with a Vengeance did that too, so it's still Die Hard :)

    No argument this time Alex

    I'm too busy at the moment. Could someone with Photoshop and free time please edit this to "YIPPIE KI-YAY MISTER FALCON" for me? (and post a link) Thank you.
