Die Hard Is Getting A Prequel, Get The Details
Deadline notes that Len Wiseman’s take on John McClane did very well at the box office, but Live Free was coming off of Die Hard with a Vengeance, which some consider the best of the sequels. Obviously this is the very early stage of development, but at least we know that Fox is interested in getting back into the Die Hard game. Are you willing to follow along?

Holiday Weekend Box Office: Presidents Day A Good Day To Die Hard
Maybe it's about time the Die Hard films started looking for a good day to die. Actually, Presidents Day 2013 might be a good choice. The fifth entry in the franchise might have topped the box office this weekend, but given the competition that's not saying much.

A Good Day To Die Hard Expected To Top This Weekend's Box Office
Critics are being absolutely unmerciful towards the latest installment of the Die Hard franchise, John Moore's A Good Day To Die Hard, but it seems that once again audiences couldn't care less. The midnight numbers for the new action flick are out, and it looks as though the movie is going to have a pretty good Valentine's Day weekend.

Should We Hope For Or Against A Die Hard 6?
In his review, Sean called it "silly, incoherent and cartoonish to a fault." For her part, Kristy's disappointment was so crushing that she had a meltdown only GIFs could properly depict. Yet when it comes to whether we should hope for a Die Hard 6, they found themselves ready to spar in a Great Debate.

My Feelings Watching A Good Day To Die Hard, In GIF Form
I was so excited for the fifth installment of the Die Hard franchise that I pre-offered to pen a piece on why it is the second best of the series, sight unseen. But then I saw it. And...plans changed. I had so many feelings watching the latest adventure of John McClane that there was really only one way to aptly unfold them. And so I present my GIF diary.

Chocolate John McClane Sweetens Up Japanese Die Hard Promotion
If you want to get something promoted in Japan, forget about posters and life-sized cardboard cutouts. What’s the best way you can think of to promote A Good Day to Die Hard? Putting the film’s image on an oily sleeveless wife beater? Releasing a bald plush doll that says “Yippee kay-yay, motherfucker?” (Since the fifth film reverts back to its R-rating and all.) How about just getting Bruce Willis to show up and say a few words about the film?

A Good Day To Die Hard Getting Crushed By Critics
The Die Hard franchise has always had a checkered past with critics. The first movie is just about as universally beloved as action movies get, but the three sequels that have come out since have always been cause for great debate among film fans. But while all of the movies have their detractors, they all have an almost equal number of supporters. Apparently that will not be the case with A Good Day To Die Hard.

Are Sylvester Stallone And Arnold Schwarzenegger's Careers Over?
Bullet to the Head opened to an estimated $4.5 million dollars over the weekend. It ranks as the lowest opening for a wide release in Stallone’s career. Are the days of box-office wine and roses over for the Planet Hollywood crew? Have audiences grown tired of these older men in action-heavy roles?

Trouble Finds John McClane In Extended A Good Day To Die Hard Featurette
John McClane doesn't go looking for trouble - trouble just has a way of finding John McClane. Bruce Willis' most iconic character has had to deal with and incredible number of screwed up and impossibly dangerous situations over the years, from running across broken glass barefoot to disabling a bomb with two jugs of water. So it's just a logical step that the latest installment of the Die Hard franchise wouldn't not just take McClane to Russia...

A Good Day To Die Hard Featurette Counts How Many Cars McClane Can Wreck
Brace yourself for a movie-marketing tie-in that walks the razor-thin line between movie coverage and blatant commercial propaganda. Mercedes-Benz no doubt paid a lot of money to see their cars get banged around in the latest Die Hard movie, titled A Good Day to Die Hard.

Die Hard Image Shows McClane Boys Walking Away From Disaster
What happened to that guy who said he’d “never go up in a tall building again” after the rooftop explosion in the original film? I guess trouble just keeps finding this now-superhero. A new image has landed, and it seems to show the aftermath of the crashing-helicopter sequence. Peep it right here.

A Good Day To Die Hard Will Be Rated R
Live Free or Die Hard was a film with many, many problems, but one thing that certainly didn't help was the rating. Unlike every other film in the series, the fourth installment was rated PG-13. For most franchises this wouldn't be a big deal, but Die Hard is one sold on the catch phrase," Yipee-kay Yay, Motherfucker."

New Good Day To Die Hard TV Spot Has John McClane Offering A Hug
Visiting the movie theater earlier this week for a Christmas showing of Django Unchained, it was impossible not to notice the giant poster with Bruce Willis' face behind the words "Yippee Ki-Yay Mother Russia." John McClane will be back in theaters this February for some Moscow shenanigans.

A Good Day To Die Hard TV Spot Has John McClane Bringing Destruction To Russia
Like many movie fans, I closed out my Christmas with a screening of the legendary action film Die Hard. Set during the holiday season, Bruce Willis kicking German terrorist ass has long been a tradition for me and I'm always excited for the opportunity. Sadly the series hasn't been set during Christmas since Die Hard 2: Die Harder.

Bruce Willis Lets Jai Courtney Sneak Onto Latest Good Day To Die Hard Poster
Like most of the promotional material leading up to this Die Hard film, this new poster doesn’t really tell us anything new about the sequel beyond the fact that Willis has agreed top resume his iconic role for another story, and things are going to get rough.

Die Hard Sequel Gets New Poster, Better International Trailer
The tagline’s so obvious, you probably would have been annoyed with 20th Century Fox’s marketing department if they’d overlooked it (or chose to go in a different direction). Uber-cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) returns for a fifth Die Hard movie, this time set in Moscow. And so, as we see on the first official poster, we get the slogan, “Yippee Ki-Ya, Mother Russia.”

A Good Day To Die Hard Brings Back Another Familiar Face
The Die Hard films comprise one of the best action series of all time and even though the fourth installment, Live Free or Die Hard, doesn't measure up to the standard set by the previous three, the addition of Mary Elizabeth Winstead to the franchise was a more than welcome one.

A Good Day To Die Hard Will Cut Down On The Humor
A big part of what makes John McClane such a great character is the fact that he's always in the wrong place at the wrong time and he's perpetually upset about it. The early films have some of the best action movie one-liners of all time, and even the character's most famous line - "Yippee-Kay Yay, Mother fucker!" - was originally said as a quip in response to being a "cowboy."

What's shown? Well, two orange trucks clear a roadway that’s later used for what looks like a car chase; we get shots of Willis out of the makeup chair, where he has been severely bloodied and bruised; and we see an explosion scene through the eye’s of the director’s monitor, followed by footage of Jai Courtney (playing Willis’ son, Jack McClane), who’s also bloody and badly beaten.

A Good Day To Die Hard is shooting in Russia, with John Moore behind the camera, marking his first directorial effort since 2008's dreadful, dull Max Payne. It's unclear just how much the nation is clamoring for another Die Hard movie, especially after 2007's Live Free or Die Hard

A Good Day To Die Hard Adds Two Villains
Sebastian Koch and Yulia Snigir have signed on to play villains in A Good Day To Die Hard. Koch, who was born in Germany, has had a long career in German cinema, but is likely best known to American audiences for his role in the Oscar winning The Lives of Others. Snigir, on the other hand, is a relative newcomer, as she only started acting in 2006. The characters they will be playing are named Komorov and Irina.

Fans of the Starz series Spartacus aren’t likely to have a hard time picturing Jai Courtney in an action role. The actor played the role of Varro in the premium cable drama, a gladiator who may have been the closest thing Spartacus had to a friend while enslaved in the house of Batiatus.

In addition to each movie in the Die Hard franchise getting a bit more ridiculous as time goes on, the titles have done the same. While it started normal enough with the first two movies - Die Hard and Die Hard 2 - the third movie got a little more creative, going with Die Hard: With a Vengeance.
