In anticipation of the trailer drop later this week, the first official image from the fifth film in the Die Hard franchise, A Good Day to Die Hard, has been released. The story takes place in Moscow and sees Bruce Willis’ John McClane teaming up with his estranged son (Jai Courtney) to take on some Russian baddies. We don’t know much about the film’s plot just yet, but director John Moore previously revealed that the pic includes a car chase sequence that took them 78 days to shoot and cautioned that fans shouldn’t expect “corny jokes” this time around.
Hit the jump to check out the image of the father-son duo walking around with guns and to see what Courtney has to say about the pic’s story. The trailer will be attached to Taken 2 this weekend, so expect it to be released online within the next couple of days. The film also stars Sebastian Koch, Yulia Snigir, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke, and Anne Vyalitsyna. A Good Day to Die Hard opens February 14, 2013.
Speaking with EW, Courtney talked briefly about the team-up of Jack and John McClane:
“That’s the thing about the Die Hard franchise, John’s always a fish out of water. What could be further out of water for him than Russia?… The relationship isn’t always functional. These are two guys who have been estranged for some time. John likes to wing it, see what happens. Jack’s more of a strategist.”
