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.
Action stars like Bruce Willis are experiencing a renaissance of sorts. While Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone debuted 'The Last Stand' and 'Bullet to the Head' this year, Willis is also introducing his greatness to a new generation of movie goers with 'A Good Day to Die Hard,' 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' and, coming later this year, 'Red 2,' which has just debuted its latest poster reminding us all that these star will never throw in the towel.
'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.
'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' should be on DVD by now but after the film was delayed at the last-minute from its June, 2012 release date, we're only now gearing up to see the 'G.I. Joe' sequel in theaters. 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' finally hits theaters this March and to get you excited, this Friday you can see 4 minutes of 3D footage in theaters with 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.' Not all that excited about paying to see 'Hansel and Gretel?' That's OK, you can preview the new footage right now.
