At the risk of sounding ungrateful for a fresh Die Hard sequel, Russia needs its own John McClane movie the way Uncle Sam needs a bright red babushka. On the flimsiest of pretexts, Bruce Willis' obstinate hero travels all the way to Moscow to find trouble in A Good Day to Die Hard, teaming up with his never-before-seen son to stop a generic terrorist from stealing weapons-grade uranium from Chernobyl — a subpar plot that feels suspiciously like someone tried to plug McClane into a preexisting screenplay. Fox's shaky bid to boost this installment's international appeal could backfire domestically. more »
The day before A Good Day to Die Hard hit theaters, fans in New York City sat through a marathon screening of the first four films at the AMC Empire 25 — and were rewarded with a visit from John McClane himself, Bruce Willis, before seeing the new film.
The best thing about the Die Hard Franchise (aside from the almost-perfect, couch-destroying original of course,) is the fact that when it comes to bad puns, these people have no shame. Die Hard 2: Die Harder; Die Hard With A Vengeance; Live Free or Die Hard. Brilliance. I can't wait for Live Together Or Die Hard Alone, Live And Let Die Hard, Cowards Die Hard Many Times, and the teen spinoff I Am So Embarrassed I Could Just Die Hard.
WATCH: Bruce Willis Adds Gravitas (And A Little 'Die Hard' Confusion) To 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' International Trailer
There's a lot to look at in this international trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation: Explosions. The muscled forms of Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson. More explosions. Masked men engaging in ninja sword fights while suspended from a snowy mountain. Avalanche! Jonathan Pryce appearing to reprise his role as the Bond villain in Tomorrow Never Dies. Bruce Willis making cracks about his cholesterol after a near-death experience. Wait! What? Isn't that what John McClane does in the Die Hard movies — like A Good Day to Die Hard, which hits movie theaters a month and a half before the G.I. Joe sequel? more »
Maybe it's my hairline, but I've always been partial to John McClane's brand of bald (and smirky) heroism. So, it's good to see my favorite hairless hard-ass Bruce Willis shooting up Russia with his cinematic son Jai Courtney (Spartacus) in the latest trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard. I'm not sure how I feel about Courtney as a potential heir to the McClane Yippie Ki Yay legacy. (For one thing, the kid has got way too much hair.) Then again, I'm not going to lose a lot of sleep over this because a Die Hard movie without Willis is not a movie I want to see. more »
Look, I'm sure this Jai Courtney dude from Spartacus playing John McClane's beefy son/action heir is great and all, but there's just one reason to watch any Die Hard movie, and his name is Bruce MF'ing Willis. So check out the first trailer for A Good Day To Die Hard even though it takes a full 30 seconds of overly edited shots of warehouses and ambiguously visible bad men with guns to get to Bruno's familiar smirk and the explosion-y goodness that follows.
