In retrospect, it's easy to say "Of course the new 'Die hard' movie was going to open at number one at the box office!" but you can bet Bruce Willis and company were a little worried. After all, 'A Good Day to Die Hard' opened in the wake of the failure of 'The Last Stand,' 'Parker' and 'Bullet to the Head,' three other macho, R-rated movies starring modern action icons. However, the strength of the 'Die Hard' brand seems to have broken that trend: John McClane's fifth outing made $25 million over the weekend.
A Good Day to Die Hard
The McClanes are a weirdly demanding family. They refuse to love husband and father John until he saves each of their lives from vicious terrorists: first his wife Holly ('Die Hard' and 'Die Hard 2'), then his daughter Lucy ('Live Free or Die Hard') and now his son Jack in 'A Good Day to Die Hard,' the latest and exponentially worst film in the 'Die Hard' franchise. How many more bad guys does John McClane have to kill to get his family to see that he really does care? More, it seems; the answer is always more.
'Die Hard 5' wants you get some action this Valentine's Day. While 'Beautiful Creatures' and 'Warm Bodies' want you to appreciate the beauty of young love, the new trailer for the Bruce Willis- and Jai Courtney-led 'A Good Day to Die Hard' is all about blowing things up, jumping through windows and killing scumbags. But we're sure you can find some themes about kittens and rainbows somewhere.
It's hard to say whether or not 'Community' could ever live up to its promise of "Six Seasons and a Movie," but the latest promo for 'Community' season 4 is certainly a good start. In advance of the long-anticipated February 7 premiere, 'Community' has taken to doing what it does best, parodying movies in their 'A Good Day to Die Hard'-style teaser of the upcoming season. What season 4 secrets are revealed within? New 'Community' scoop inside!
Often, when it comes to promoting a movie, actors are often as likely to fall back on hyperbole as a fanboy seeing the latest comic book movie. Still, it took us by surprise when 'A Good Day to Die Hard' co-star Yuliya Snigir describes making the movie as "better than sex" in the film's latest promotional featurette.
