A Good Day to Die Hard

While audiences should be checking out Bruce Willis tangling with Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a younger version of himself in Looper, others will be interested in seeing him back as John McClane when A Good Day to Die Hard heads to theaters in February. Jai Courtney is getting in on the mix this time as McClane's son as the two manly men find themselves dealing with a threat in Russia. Now we have our first look at the father and son toting guns across the world. As for the dynamic between the two characters, Courtney says, "The relationship isn’t always functional. These are two guys who have been estranged for some time. John likes to wing it, see what happens. Jack’s more of a strategist.” Expect a teaser trailer soon.

Here's the first look at John Moore's A Good Day to Die Hard from EW:

Has an R Rating been confirmed or is it just gonna be another lame toned down Pg-13 flick, I hate when they do this. It's not just about changing some elements it's about changing the basis that was established in the first Die Hard film. If the first film was R then the rest of the films should follow as simple as that, it just downs out the expectations of what was seen previously.

Agree to some extent. But 'Live Free Or Die Hard' was PG-13 and is still one of my favorites of the franchise. Good acting with a solid script and plot can far outweigh bloody gore and colorful language. But so help me if John McClane doesn't deliver his signature phrase due to a sheepish rating...

Did we watch the same movie ? Die Hard, part 4.. the one that came after 3... same movie ?

I like Live Free, almost loved it. If only Justin Dork hadn't completely ruined it, Shia style.

The fourth "Die Hard" movie was a heap of shit. Even worse than the third.

... since it's being released on February instead of the summer I think we're going to get a proper R-rated Die Hard. I hope so.

Atleast they are doing something diffrent. Leaving america.. I'm in if its R, But i know they have 2 copies ur and pg-13

It will be PG-13, not a doubt in my mind. LFODH was a success with that rating. But John Moore will deliever a mediocre film, has he done anything that stands out?

Behind Enemy Lines was darn good. Still is.

Jim on Oct 3, 2012


LFODH. God I hate when people do this

I so badly want this to be good. The last one jumped the shark in a big way, and this needs to rectify that mistake. Shit, because of Live Free I'm now skeptical of a new Die Hard. Being weary of Die Hard is not the life I want to lead. Good or bad, at least I can go back to the first three. Crossing my fingers...

I was surprised how much I enjoyed the last entry in the series, it wasn't anything spectacular but it was a fairly enjoyable mindless thrill ride. Hopefully the director took some action notes from Taken and will apply it here....

Max Payne is the worst action film I have ever seen. That he could screw up a simple action film like that so incredibly makes me have no expectations for this film. I did enjoy Behind Enemy Lines, it's a guilty pleasure and did have a few good scenes.

I can imagine a lot of typical father son arguments, but during gun fights... which will suck

Richie G on Oct 3, 2012


The man who made Max Payne is attached to this film...and hes directing...label me hopeless.
