I’m cautiously excited for Die Hard. On one bleeding and broken hand, I’m scared about the fact that John Moore is directing, as that’s the guy behind the godawful Max Payne film, a movie so bad that internet pirates actually avoid it. But on the other hand, the trailers released so far look simply fantastic.
John McClane looks like a R18 badass with a touch of madness once again, Jai Courtney looks like a welcome addition to the franchise and the action set-pieces that have been teased look like fantastic symphonies of destruction. Either these bits of footage come from the greatest video editor on the planet, or we might have a damn good film on our hands that can stand proudly with the original three Die Hards. Not you Die Hard 4, you can stay outside. Go on, shoo!
So take a gander at these pics then from the Lebanese Cinema Movie Guide, which has McClane sporting battle damage alongside his son, beating up what appears to be a bearded Mel Gibson and yes fellas, that motorcycle lady unzipping her suit. A good day to Die Hard finds itself in the wrong place at the wrong time next month, and stars Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch, Yulia Snigir, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Anne Vyalitsyna.
