The full length theatrical trailer for Live Free or Die Hard is now online. Am I the only one who still prefers the original (now international) title, Die Hard 4.0?
Live Free or Die Hard takes place 18 years after the first film. John McClane (Bruce Willis) who must come out of retirement to battle an internet terrorist organization intending to systematically demolish or seize our technological infrastructure via a three-day plan. These guys will gradually step up malfunctions starting with traffic control systems, working towards economic markets, and finally shutting down key utilities like power and water, to send the U.S. essentially into a modern Dark Ages. Didn’t George Carlin have a joke about this?
The film is directed by music video turned Underworld series helmer Len Wiseman, and it shows. The actions sequences look intense. Did you see that car crash into the helicopter? And what about John McClane jumping onto a jet-fighter? One of my good friends who is a avid die hard fanboy is a little worried that the film doesn’t have the Die Hard “feel.” He says the John McClane character doesn’t reveal himself until the final seconds of the trailer, and I have to somewhat agree.
