A Good Day To Die Hard Teaser Online
Like father, like gun

04 October 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Yahoo!

submit to reddit

Though we've had a look at a picture from A Good Day To Die Hard, the fifth instalment in the saga of (now former) NYPD cop John McClane, today brings the teaser trailer from Yahoo!, which shows us what we can expect from the movie. Take a look above.

On the evidence on this nearly dialogue-free promo (Bruce Willis gets a one-liner at the end), things go boom in the film a lot. Which seems fitting for a Die Hard outing.

The plot – which is sort of displayed in broad visual strokes here – has McClane attempting to reconnect with estranged sprog Jack (Spartacus’ Jai Courtney) while also tackling some nasty international thieves and a rogue Russian leader breaking out of prison. Oh, and the beautiful Irina (Yuliya Snigir) showing up on a bike and revealing what she’s wearing under her leathers (which, from the looks of it, prompts a cheeky smile from McClane).

We’ll have to wait and see the finished product (in cinemas on February 14) to judge whether director John Moore (The Omen, Max Payne) has delivered on his promise to make something more satisfying than Die Hard 4.0, but the signs are reasonably positive from this early peek.

Can't wait
When a trailer has me giggling like a schoolgirl, and bouncing up and down in my chair, I think I'll be there! Die Hard 4 did suck IMOHO - No onscreen deaths (to get the lower rating) and Olyphant doing a magnificent Will Young impersonation put me off (doesn't mean I'm right or wrong!), despite the excellent action scenes. New direction, and a hottie on a bike.....lovely job! More

McClane's children
I noticed the other day, somebody moaning "when did McClane ever have a son, where is it mentioned in any of the films?" Well, I am just watching the first (not to be a geek, just bcos it's been ages) and in his wallet he has a note from his kids signed "Lucy and John." So there. More

RE: absolutely fantastic! love it
Everyone take a look at mclane1's profile pic! (Above)That really defines who Mclane is. Cocky, defiant and totally awersome. If Die Hard 5 (which it will probably end up being called over here) gets Willis to be anything like this image of Mclane, I'll be happy. That first shot in the trailer where we see of Mclane in the lift with a shotgun - if he had a fag in his mouth, I'd have full belief in this movie!

RE: Checklist:
Thought the teaser was fine personally, look forward to seeing this. Die Hard 4 really wasn't that bad also, I still disagree with the PG-13 direction they took the series in, but 4 was a fun romp none the less, maybe not such a great Die Hard film per se, but a decent action film all the same. I think the days of a gratuitously voilent foul mouthed Die Hard are long gone sadly, which is a shame because I think some of the series biggest laughs were a direct result of that. "I'm not t More

Checklist:
Vest, dirt for said vest, perhaps a reference to Zeus / Al Powell?, cigarettes, swears, catchphrase. A wig would be too much to ask for. Im guessing all of these factors will be ignored, but I still look forward to this. Very much agree that I hope this has an injection of "Fast Five", and unexpectedly blows awesome all over my face.

RE: Die Hard 4
L: James2183 This is a Bruce Willis action film not a John McClane film. Just like 4. greed. This was precisely the problem with Die Hard 4 - Willis wasn't playing John McClane in it. Hopefully the full trailer will give us more McClane and less Grumpy Generic Willis. It bodes well that this teaser suggests that 5 isn't the CGI-heavy craptacular that was 4, so the action could be believable* once more. at I don't necessarily mean scientifically accurate (e.g. having a fall More

Bring it on...
At some point in the interwebs perception becomes reality...The juggernaut of hating Die Hard 4.0 and Quantum just grew over the years for the most absurd of reasons. I think both films were great and 4.0 had some of the best action set peices of that year...so I'm certanly looking forward to this. More

they even kept in that classic score which suggests its respecting the die hard die harders amongst us. looks like Die Hard in Gotham! cant wait, loved 4.0 in the fact that they kept mclanes character well and it was FUN. This looks the same, time will tell. More

I always laugh when people tare apart a movie before it even is released. First of all; let's not forget we are talking about movies here. In this case escapism action/fun/over the top movies. Also, in this case, with Bruc Willis kicking but and... you know, lot's of things blowing up and all. I thought DH4 was great and I think this looks very promising. I also think Bruce remains a great action star. Heck, we can understand what the hell he's saying. I don't think he's quite the fit with the a More

The fact that this movie is being made....
...underlines that Hollywood doesn't care about quality, and probably even intentionally makes movies worse on PURPOSE to sell more tickets/DVDs/blu-rays, etc. If buying a different version on DVD coz people realised the cinema version sucked isn't feeble-minded, then I don't know what is. You've basically paid twice for the same pile of shit. I don't mind other people having low standards, but I do mind when Hollywood produces garbage like Die Hard 4 on repeat and something genuinely hard More

RE: Die Hard 4.0 was great!
You know, Die Hard 4 wasn't actually cut, the version we saw in the cinema was the director's version. The 'uncut' version adds CG blood, changes a couple of lines and adds ADR'd swearing. Fox just heard that folk were moaning that the film was PG-13 so they added bits for the dvd after the fact....... More

RE: Die Hard 4
I really like Die Hard 4.0, especially the uncut version. After watching Looper recently, I thought Bruce Willis suddenly looked really quite old and I was worried as to whether he could still cut it as McClane. This trailer has relieved some of my fears as to, this was one Die Hard too far. Please make this a 15 rating, it doesn't have to be excessively violent, but a Die Hard movie for the kiddies just doesn't work More

Die Hard 4
Each to their own but to me DH4 was pish IMO, watered down OTT rubbish & i love over the top ridiculous action movies as much as any other 80's baby. Bruce surfing on the back of a jet plane was too much, for me the shark was jumped. Hopefully going back to their roots with some Euro trash villainy, ode to joy etc will have this one feeling more like a die hard movie. More
