Bruce Willis’ latest film Looper earned solid reviews and got off to a great start at the box office, banking more than $21 million in its debut weekend. We’ve been having such a good time dissecting Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s portrayal of the same time-traveling assassin that we forgot he has another chapter of his signature series -- Die Hard -- on the horizon.
Hopefully this new photo from A Good Day to Die Hard, shared with Entertainment Weekly, will get us right back on track. Check it out below:
That’s Spartacus star Jai Courtney next to Willis, playing Jack McClane … John’s son. Their mission takes them to Russia, where Courtney says his fictional father will continue to be “a fish out of water.”
“What could be further out of water for him than Russia? [In addition], 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.”
Who are they strategizing against? Courtney couldn’t say, because to reveal would be to spoil a key ingredient of the fifth Die Hard film. But when images start hitting the Web, trailers usually follow. I’m willing to bet we see a trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard by Friday, or maybe over the weekend.
As for the photo, why does it always look like Courtney’s head has been Photoshopped on his body? And remember when it was such a big deal when McClane secured a machine gun? (“Ho, ho, ho.”) Now he comes to these sequels loaded for war. Hopefully he at least loses his shoes while running around Moscow. We’ll find out soon enough-- A Good Day To Die Hard is set for release February 14 next year, just in time for your Valentine's Day celebrations to include a rogue American settling scores over in Russia.
