The first couple trailers for A Good Day to Die Hard, aka the fifth film in the series that stars Bruce Willis as put-upon NYC cop John McClane, relied heavily on great editing, whiz-bang explosions and a couple good smirks from Willis. This third one (or the second full-length trailer) has a lot more going for it. There’s still plenty of bombast, but this one actually looks like a Die Hard film, for the most part.
Jai Courtney looks better as the younger McClane, in part because he gets a lot more time in this trailer, and the villains get a couple of fun lines. Overall I find myself looking forward to this one far more than I ever would have expected, and that’s mostly due to this new trailer. Check it out below. Read More »

After the break, get some behind the scenes tastes of Jack Reacher, A Good Day to Die Hard, and Gangster Squad, all of which hit in the next couple months.

The first teaser trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard was a delightfully explosive bit of fun, but disappointingly, that energy doesn’t seem to have translated to the first teaser poster. Our first bit of print marketing for the action sequel tries to be striking in its simplicity, and merely ends up being bland. Doesn’t help that star Bruce Willis‘ face is so Photoshopped he’s tiptoeing right up against the border of Uncanny Valley, either.
Much more exciting are the badass new international poster for Django Unchained, and the Weinstein Co.’s latest batch of stylish onesheets for Killing Them Softly. Check ’em all out after the jump.

The more we see from John Moore‘s A Good Day To Die Hard, the better it looks. We recently got a glimpse at the kinetic teaser trailer and now, in the second trailer, the story begins to slowly reveal itself with even more explosions, more gun fire and the first interactions between John McClane (Bruce Willis) and his son Jack, played by Jai Courtney. Plus: huge bonus points for the Mary Elizabeth Winstead cameo! Check it out below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
I’ll give it to Fox’s marketing people: this first teaser trailer for the fifth John McClane outing, A Good Day to Die Hard, is zippy and fun. What happens in the movie? Who is McClane fighting, and why? Who’s the guy with him? Why did that woman even bother wearing a bra if she wasn’t going to wear a shirt under the leather? These questions are but trifles, because EXPLOSIONS! Lots and lots of explosions.
And, once again, Bruce Willis as McClane, with a wryly amused look in his eye and a smirk on his face. I missed that smirk. Get a dose below. Read More »
It worked for Looper, so here once again is an early image from a new Bruce Willis film in which the actor wields a powerful rifle.
In this case, the film is A Good Day to Die Hard, aka Die Hard 5, and a project that isn’t likely to be even vaguely as satisfying as Looper. And this time, instead of having Joseph Gordon-Levitt on board as the younger Willis, we have Jai Courtney (Spartacus) playing Willis Jr. (Actually, he’s playing the junior McClane, but close enough.) The pic puts them both in the frame during the action of the latest episode in the long-running action series, this time from director John Moore. Check out the full shot below. Read More »
