We're nearly twenty five years removed from the release of the first 'Die Hard' movie, and 'A Good Day to Die Hard' release coincides with the first film's silver anniversary. And though the connective tissue may be strained, we're down for a Bruce Willis action fest, so this featurette for the new film gets us a little excited.
After all this time thinking that Rian Johnson's 'Looper' was an original concept, it turns out we were wrong. The sci-fi film featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt tasked with killing his future self, played by Bruce Willis, has been done before...and with the same actors. In fact, footage has been posted to YouTube that proves these two high-profile actors teamed up years ago and starred in a film with the exact same concept as 'Looper.'
'Die Hard 5' ('A Good Day to Die Hard' if you must) introduced itself to the world with the first image from the movie and today we get the first 'Die Hard 5' trailer. Yup, John McClane is back.
'Die Hard 5' (or 'A Good Day to Die Hard' as it's properly known) is an actual movie that's actually happening. We would've thought 'Live Free or Die Hard' would've been the end of the franchise but after spending time with his daughter, John McClane (Bruce Willis) is back to team up with his son, Jack McClane, in 'Die Hard 5.' And now you can get a first look at the McClane boys in action.
The success of Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper’ is great news for fans of wholly original movies, because the Sony-distributed, time travel-based hit is not based on a novel or comic book or toy or anything else, and hopefully it is a harbinger of things to come. But that originality may spawn unoriginality as the success of the film may dictate a 'Looper 2.' Should there be a 'Looper 2?' Could there be a 'Looper 2?' We investigate.
Sony has been doing a bang-up job building awareness for Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper,’ which finally opens in theaters on Friday, September 28 after what feels like months of anticipation. Johnson and his team stopped at WonderCon, Comic-Con and helped open this year’s Toronto International Film Festival with his time-bending thriller. But you really haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen the new animated trailer for the film. Check it out below.
