New Good Day To Die Hard Image
John McClane and son take aim

03 October 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Entertainment Weekly

The first official A Good Day To Die Hard picture – at least with the now standard action movie colour scheme – has arrived over at Entertainment Weekly and you can see it above.

This latest outing for Bruce Willis’ ex-NYPD officer and endlessly frustrated traveller John McClane finds him in Moscow, attempting to figure out some serious international trouble while also reconnecting with his estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney).

Of course, nothing in John’s life is ever simple. Even trying to mend fences with his spawn. “The relationship isn’t always functional. These are two guys who have been estranged for some time, Courtney tells EW. “John likes to wing it, see what happens. Jack’s more of a strategist.”

Empire chatted with the movie’s director, John Moore a little while back, and he revealed that we can expect solid McClane action this time around. "There are a couple of great gags and a couple of great McClanisms. It’s not like he this idiot, bumbling around Moscow making ‘America won the Cold War’ jokes. It’s not Carry On Die Hard, I can assure you..."

A Good Day To Die Hard will shoot onto our screens on February 14.

Die Hard 5: Been Dead for Ages
The series has gone so lame, I didn't even know they were making a new one? The first three movies were brilliant (apart from the last few minutes of With a Vengeance), and they should have left it there. DH4 was an atrocity to cinema, and I've avoided watching Willis in anything since then. Stick to the crappy Sky TV ads, man.... More

RE: Don't judge yet...
L: TPM007 The guys who are hating on Die Hard 4 need to really feast their eyes on the un-cut edition, with more swearing and violence, as it really does change the tone of the film back to the good ol' McClane! As long as the John and son story takes a back seat and McClane does his own thing, I'll be lookin forward to this one! The trailer (rumoured for next week) may bring some light to the film... adly, the 'un-cut edition' was a reaction to outraged fans, and featured dubbed in More

Oh Sweet Jesus... McClane in Moscow with son called Jai. So they are actually trying to exceed the idiocy of the previous film. The majesty of one of the greatest franchises ever has tarnished permanently. More
