I thought we were quite done seeing Bruce Willis play John McClane after Live Free or Die Hard made its way through the theaters. It’s apparently difficult to quit a cash cow character like McClane, which brings us to A Good Day To Die Hard, the fifth installment in the long-running franchise, which will be back to a hard-R format when A Good Day To Die Hard hits Blu-ray and DVD on June 4.


A Good Day To Die Hard teams John McClane up with his rogue son, Jack (Jai Courtney) which leads to a Russian adventure of epic proportions. Of course, you can’t have Russian villains without including weapons of nuclear origin and bringing up the dreaded Chernobyl disaster. A Good Day To Die Hard is as over-the-top as ever, with the only difference being an older McClane whose various injuries throughout the film seem to effect the action hero more.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is putting together a pretty nice Blu-ray release for A Good Day To Die Hard, which will actually fall during the Die Hard franchise’s 25th Anniversary year. To celebrate, Blu-ray copies will come with over two hours of bonus features, including the “Making it Hard to Die” documentary, which will focus on various aspects of the film. Additionally, if you don’t care about bonus features, digital copies of the flick will be made available early, on May 14. If you are interested in a hard copy, you can pre-order over at Amazon or take a full look at the bonus features, below.
