Details on the newest Die Hard Movie
Action and Adventure with John McClain, who is one hard guy to kill.
The new trailer for Die Hard 5: A Good Day To Die Hard, has been released in theaters and on the internet, to enthusiasm for film audiences. The initial trailer, beginning with strains of Beethoven's 9th Symphony, reminiscient of the original film in the franchise, is accompnaied by the usual mayhem and destruction of John McClane, the unkillablle superhero cop who spawned a horde of imitators. Die Hard movies may be low on credibility, but generally the action sequences and suspense make up for the thin plot and the unlikely coincidence that McClain somehow is in a building, at an airport, or on the beat when he manages to get right in the middle of a major terroris operation. On top of that, he somehow manages to beat teams of trained assasins with minimal help. Will the newest film be any different? We hope not, though a there is always the rumor of a surprise ending where the hero finally dies.
The fifth installment of the Die Hard franchise began shooting in January 2012 for a February 2013 released date. Entitled “A Good Day to Die Hard” the story is set in Russia where John McClane must get his son out of trouble with the Russian Authorities. Predictably (otherwise the movie would be John McClane drinking alone in his apartment) there will be terrorist activities, or a hijacking, or a hostage situation, or all three, and McClane will be the one man who can put an end to the nefarious plan. The film is expected to be directed by John Moore, with a screenplay by Skip Woods.
