On Valentine’s Day of next year several “Die Hard” franchise fans are going to be hoping that their loved one/partner is going to be willing to saddle up for the yippee-ki-yay-ing of Bruce Willis' John McClane when “A Good Day to Die Hard” opens in AMC Theatres.

In a recent interview with Empire Magazine director John Moore teased “Die Hard” lovers with a few tidbits from the production.

"There are a couple of great gags and a couple of great McClanisms. It’s not like [he's] this idiot, bumbling around Moscow making ‘America won the Cold War’ jokes. It’s not 'Carry On Die Hard', I can assure you... I don’t know whether it’s post-financial crash or whatever, but I don’t think people are in the mood for that bollocks anymore. People are well savvy to the cynical reheating of any product, any franchise. Any s--t won’t do. The bar’s a bit higher."

The helmer also wants fans to know that this film will deliver on all of the action that it promises.

"It goes from New York to Moscow. It’s very, very international. There’s a car chase through Moscow that’s taking us 78 days to shoot."

Synopsis:

Since the first "Die Hard" in 1988, John McClane has found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the skills and attitude to always be the last man standing, making him enemy #1 for terrorists the world over. Now, McClane faces his greatest challenge ever, this time on an international stage, when his estranged son Jack is caught up in the daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader, and father and son McClane must work together to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy.

“A Good Day to Die Hard” opens in AMC Theatres on February 14th, 2013.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
