With a couple weeks to go before it hits theaters, A Good Day to Die Hard marketing has gone on overdrive. In the past couple weeks, we’ve seen TV spots, new images, a new clip, and now a four-minute featurette has been released. The big takeaway from the featurette: the action movie is an action movie. My main concern isn’t the amount of action, but how John McClane (Bruce Willis) relates to that action. The guy who took down a fighter jet in Live Free or Die Hard isn’t John McClane. The appeal is that he’s an everyman who kills lots of bad guys and barely survives. I’ve seen all the marketing, and I’m still not sure which McClane is going to show up, but I hope it’s the latter.
Hit the jump to check out the featurette. The film also stars Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch, Yulia Snigir, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Anne Vyalitsyna, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. A Good Day to Die Hard opens February 14th.
Here’s the official synopsis for A Good Day to Die Hard:
Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane, for the first time, finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack–unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes discover that their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes.
