Happy Valentine’s Day action lovers. February 14 will be the day that the latest in the Die Hard franchise, A Good Day To Die Hard, opens in theaters. Bruce Willis is back as tough guy cop John McClane, this time joined by his son Jack (Jai Courtney) to stop the terrorist plot du jour. Here’s the first full-length trailer for the film.
A couple of quick thoughts, first being that the trailer confirms the rumor from back in August of Mary Elizabeth Winstead reprising her role of Lucy McClane for at least a small cameo in the film.
Also noteworth is the return of the use of one of the main themes from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, harkening back to the first and third Die Hard movies.
And if you’re wondering why McClane is in Russia, well here’s the studio’s official ploy synopsis to clue you in –
Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane, for the first time, finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack–unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes discover that their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes.
