Fox has released a new trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard. Usually at this point, the trailers begin to reveal the basic plot (and some go too far and reveal the whole movie). However, the fifth Die Hard is a little over a month away, and I still don’t know what the plot is beyond “McClane n’ Son fight bad Russians.” The Die Hard movies have never been complex, but the villain always has a clear motive, so we know what John McClane is trying to stop. I think the bad guy in this movie wants nukes or something, but even that seems kind of vague.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Bruce Willis, 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.
The first trailer for the sequel 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. The new trailer doesn’t elaborate on the story, but it does show off plenty of action, which is probably a good idea considering this is a Die Hard movie. I still can’t bring myself to get on board with a PG-13 Die Hard film, and I don’t know what director John Moore will bring to the project, but this is a fun trailer, and I especially like the remixing of “Ode to Joy”.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Directed by John Moore the film stars Bruce Willis, 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 on February 14th, 2013.
We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share this evening. First up, Harry Potter thesp Alan Rickman has landed the lead role in the biopic CBGB. Variety reports that Rickman will play New York City’s famed nightclub owner Hilly Kristal in the film, with Randall Miller (Bottle Shock) set to direct. The film will plot the real-life story of Kristal’s CBGB club and how it impacted the underground music scene with artists like the Talking Heads, the Ramones, and Blondie. The script was written by Miller and Jody Savin, and the two wrote the role of Kristal with Rickman in mind.
Miller was supposed to first shoot the Dennis Wilson biopic The Drummer, but that film has been pushed back to the fall. Rickman is a stellar actor, and we recently learned that Rickman may be playing President Ronald Reagan in Lee Daniels’ historical drama The Butler. CBGB will start filming this summer. Hit the jump for casting news concerning the fifth entry in the Die Hard franchise.
The ambitions of the team of US marshals at the center of NBC’s new fast-paced law enforcement drama are clear: we’re here to catch the bad guys. If Law & Order challenges your mind too much but CSI: Miami just makes you feel dirty, then Chase just might have enough action and standard police procedural fare to satisfy. But the real question is whether or not Annie Frost (Kelli Giddish) and her top notch team chasing the most notorious and ruthless criminals in the state of Texas are enough to make Chase worth your pursuit. Find out after the jump.
Armored may not a blockbuster extravaganza filled with Hollywood’s biggest stars, but from what I’ve seen, it looks like a tight little action-thriller and that’s good enough for me. I am hoping it’s good because you don’t want this film to be a travesty and then face the fact that director Nimrod Antal is going to be making Predators. Still, I have faith and hopefully these five new clips from the film will inspire some faith in you as well.
Hit the jump to check out the clips along with a brief synopsis. Armored hits theaters on December 4th.
