The first trailer for “A Good Day to Die Hard” was released earlier today and it features all the things we love about the “Die Hard” franchise – guns, explosions, foreign bad guys with big plans … and John McClane being a total badass.
Starring Bruce Willis, in his fifth outing as ex-cop McClane, Die Hard 5 (as we know we’ll all be calling it!) brings back Mary Elizabeth Winstead as McClane’s daughter, and the trailer gives us our first glimpse of Jai Courtney as John McClane Jr. (aka Jack).
Courtney won the role after beating out stiff competition, and his character of course allows for the long-running franchise to continue without Willis should the film be a hit. The plot has been kept firmly underwraps but it looks like McClane and son are heading to Russia this time around.
“Die Hard or Live Free” was a disappointing addition to the franchise but today’s trailer suggests director John Moore may have managed to avoid turning this film into another generic Willis action flick and remind us why we all loved Die Hard in the first place.
Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts in the comments. “A Good Die To Die Hard” is due out February 14th 2013.
