'A Good Day To Die Hard' Featurette: Some Good Father-Son Bonding

Recommended Posts


[i]By Hannah Soo Park[/i]

It looks like this one's going to be a family affair.

The latest preview of "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/472226/moviemain.jhtml"]A Good Day To Die Hard[/url]" throws us into a frenzy of action sequences (involving lots of exploding cars and buildings) mashed up with Australian actor Jai Courtney's commentary on his role as hero John McClane's (Bruce Willis) estranged son Jack in the fifth and latest installment of the "Die Hard" series.

We've seen the exploding cars and buildings before, but what's more fleshed out in this new featurette is the father-son relationship that the film seems to center around. "They lock horns, they butt heads," Courtney says of the duo.

But all in good humor, of course—the video is peppered with one-liners and snappy dialogue between McClane and son. "It's been great, that's for sure," adds Courtney.

So what other highlights are worth pointing out? Keeping the earlier trailers in mind, we've ultimately gathered that John McClane heads to Moscow, where he runs into his son Jack (who is working for the CIA with "a deep cover.") What follows are lots of exploding cars and buildings (no, really, a lot), the inevitable jokes about mom's cooking and of course, a "Die Hard" take on the ultimate father-son rite of passage: jumping out of a building together.

Willis played McClane in 1988's "Die Hard," and has since reprised the iconic role in three sequels: "Die Hard 2" (1990), "Die Hard With A Vengeance" (1995) and "Live Free and Die Hard" (2007).

[i]"A Good Day To Die Hard" opens on February 14, 2013.[/i]

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
