Fresh off that great poster with the tagline that hopefully earned somebody from the marketing department a well-deserved promotion, the new poster for February’s A Good Day to Die Hard opts for a tagline-free look at the McClane boys — papa John and son Jack — holding identical really big guns and staring off-camera. Maybe they’re staring at a helicopter they’re going to shoot at. Maybe, given the movie’s Moscow setting, they are staring at President Vladimir Putin, and Putin is saying something like “Do you really sink you heff a chawnce against us, cowboys?” (Putin has a German accent, for some reason.) Anyhow, they’re definitely looking at something, and it’s probably about to explode. Take a look below, and click on the image for a bigger look at the carnage. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Bruce Willis (11-20 of 36)
Come out to Moscow, we’ll get together, have a few laughs…
The McClanes just can’t stay out of trouble, can they? In the fifth installment of the Die Hard series, A Good Day to Die Hard, our hero John McClane (Bruce Willis) travels to Russia to help his estranged son John “Jack” McClane (Jai Courtney) with…something CIA related. But there are explosions and bad guys with Russian accents, and witty one-liners, so it doesn’t seem to stray from the formula.
After the jump, check out the short clip featuring some behind the scenes footage from A Good Day to Die Hard and a few words from Australian actor Jai Courtney.
The newest trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation isn’t all that much different from the previous trailers. We still get a brief glimpse of Channing Tatum before he seems to be blown to smithereens. We still witness a winky Bruce Wills as the original G.I. Joe cracking wise about his cholesterol. We still see the city of London go kablooey. And we still have the the pleasure of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson showcasing his terrifying-yet-transfixing biceps. But since the movie was abruptly bumped from its summer 2012 release to March 29, 2013 for a conversion to 3-D, a reshuffled refresher of why you were jazzed to see the film in the first place is in order.

Josh Duhamel plays a firefighter who witnesses a murder in the upcoming thriller Fire With Fire, co-starring Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, and Vincent D’Onofrio, and he only has words of praise for D’Onofrio, who plays a plump-faced villainous killer, in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video, below. “He’s not afraid to go to places that are horrible,” gushes Duhamel about D’Onofrio.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is the kind of actress who can throw a dagger stare better than most, and she does — with her hair fluffed up, her cleavage bared like a trashy Amazon — as Tulip, a gambler’s wife, in this exclusive clip from Stephen Frears’ new film Lay the Favorite, co-starring Bruce Willis, Vince Vaughn, Joshua Jackson, and Rebecca Hall. The movie comes out on VOD Nov. 2, and in theaters Dec. 7.
The object of Zeta-Jones’ competitive evil eye? Hall (The Town), playing pretty and bright-eyed Las Vegas gal Beth, taken under the wing of Tulip’s gambler hubby Dink, played by Willis. “Hi, I’m Beth,” says Hall, innocently plunging out her hand for a handshake. “You’re Beth?” bemuses Zeta-Jones, circling her like a shark wearing lipstick. “Uh-huh,” says Hall, to which Zeta-Jones only replies with a one-word “Oh.” READ FULL STORY
“Welcome to Moscow!” enthuses a local taxi driver to a visiting John McClane before everything in the entire city explodes to the tune of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.” Of course, Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” would have been more nationalistically appropriate, and no less overused, but it’s still a pretty impressive array of disarray. Willis and Jai Courtney (who plays McClane’s son) shoot at bad guys, trucks, buildings, helicopters, and grand pianos before jumping through a window at pretty much the same height it took to kill Alan Rickman in the first movie.

'A Good Day to Die Hard' poster has the only tagline a 'Die Hard' movie set in Russia would ever need -- EXCLUSIVE
Here’s a first look at the new teaser poster for A Good Day to Die Hard, and while it’s about as minimalist as Bruce Willis’ hairstyle, it still tells us pretty much everything we need to know about the new movie: Bruce is back, most of the action will take place in Russia, and there’s a decent chance the franchise will remain PG-13 friendly, you no-good melon farmer. Oh, and Jai Courtney will be joining as Jack McClane, John’s estranged son — but that can presumably wait until the next batch of promotional materials.
The tagline is a thing of groan-worthy beauty, combining McClane’s trademark catchphrase and wit with his penchant for getting into trouble at an exponentially increasing rate: First a skyscraper, then an airport, then a city, then a country, and now finally the world. One can only assume this will be setting up the sixth film, where McClane hitches a ride on a Russian rocket to do battle with the third Gruber brother, Franz, aboard the International Space Station. Or something like that. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
The holidays are coming early this year for the discerning cinephile in your life.
Arriving Nov. 20, Tarantino XX contains eight films chosen by Quentin Tarantino to illustrate the first 20 years of his career. The Blu-ray set includes Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Death Proof, and Inglourious Basterds. Yes, yes, True Romance was directed by Tony Scott, but Tarantino wrote the script.
Tarantino XX will also feature two bonus discs with five hours of all-new material, highlighted by a critics’ retrospective and interviews with stars and other masters of cinema.
Check out the promotional trailer below. Remember: Shoot first, ask questions later. READ FULL STORY
You’ll get no plot from the new trailer to A Good Day to Die Hard (i.e. Die Hard 5: John McClane is Apparently an Immortal Cyborg). Instead, you’ll get some blue-lit subterfuge involving helicopters and men in gas masks, shots lingering over both male and female impressive derrieres, and a whole! bunch! of! explosions! It’s all capped off with a winking admission from Bruce Willis as to what John McClane has become. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
A Good Day to Die Hard will be the fifth entry in the action franchise featuring irascible and still-not-yet-retired NYPD officer John McClane—other potential titles included Die Hard or Die Trying and You’re Going to Die Hard, Charlie Brown–but this time he’s got an unlikely partner. Sure, he had an unlikely partner in the last two Die Hard movies, but now it’s his son, okay? Spartacus‘ Jai Courtney plays John McClane, Jr. (a.k.a. Jack) alongside Bruce Willis as the McClane clan head to Russia.
“That’s the thing about the Die Hard franchise, John’s always a fish out of water,” says Courtney, who is also starring opposite Tom Cruise in this fall’s Jack Reacher. “What could be further out of water for him than Russia?” Making things even more complicated, father and son don’t necessarily get along. “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.”
Still, the McClanes are able to put their differences aside to fight some baddies, although what particular type of baddies is still unclear. “I can’t say much about the villains without giving it away,” Courtney says. Hmm, maybe there’s something to the fact that all previous odd-numbered Die Hards have featured a Gruber?
A Good Day to Die Hard is slated to hit theaters on Feb. 14, 2013.
