If you’re looking for an ‘alternative’ movie to check on Valentine’s Day next year, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better choice than A Good Day to Die Hard. The fifth installment in the series features exploding cars, buildings blowing up, Russian models wearing (and not wearing) black leather, and Bruce Willis running around with a machine gun (basically, it’s Live Free or Die Hard set in Moscow).
A new international trailer for the fifth Die Hard teases all that and more, including the dynamic between John McClane and his son Jack (played by Spartacus alum Jai Courtney). We also have a new teaser poster, featuring, well… pretty much the best groan-inducing pun tagline you can imagine for a Die Hard movie set in Russia.
As expected, we get a truncated SFW version of McClane’s iconic one-liner in the new trailer, along with rapid-fire clips of explosive action and some banter between Willis and Courtney. If you think that promo is heavy on the cheese, though, just wait until you see the official one-sheet (courtesy of EW):
A Good Day to Die Hard was directed by John Moore (Max Payne), working from a script penned by Skip Woods (The A-Team). It’s safe to say that neither of those gentlemen is aiming to mix things up here, as the film has similar story/character elements and relentless action as that in the first three Die Hard movies – plus the over-the-top set pieces that were incorporated into the fourth installment (not to mention, McClane’s newfound invulnerability).
Will you be checking out A Good Day to Die Hard next year on Valentine’s Day? Or is four Die Hard movies enough for you?
