Has the Die Hard franchise gotten a little distance away from the common man in a bad situation that made the original so compelling? Yes, obviously. Does it matter? It does when they do it badly. But not at all when they do it well. And I've got to say that the promos for A Good Day To Die Hard are making a believer of me.
Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane, for the first time,
finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help his
wayward son Jack--unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA
operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian
underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes
discover that their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes.
After an impressive first teaser a full trailer has now arrived. We get to say Jai Courtney play off Bruce Willis a bit in this one and he looks pretty strong. Certainly far better than when they wedged Chris Rock into the Lethal Weapon franchise for a bit of young blood there. Shudder. Check the new trailer below.
