John McClane Is Back in Trailer For A Good Day to Die Hard

Yippe-ki-yay mother–whaaaat? Yahoo! Movies has premiered the teaser trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard, which sees a 57-year-old Bruce Willis reprise his role as New York City police detective John McClane, “the 007 of Plainfield, New Jersey.”

Set to a manic rendition of “Ode to Joy,” the trailer doesn’t provide many clues to the plot — the accompanying description reads only, “John McClane and his son get into a dangerous situation in Russia” — but it does offer gunfire and plenty of explosions. Exploding buildings, exploding trucks, exploding cars, exploding … you get the picture. Fans of the billion-dollar franchise will undoubtedly think it’s precisely what they’ve been missing since 2007’s Live Free or Die Hard.

Directed by John Moore (Behind Enemy Lines, Max Payne), A Good Day to Die Hard sends McClane to Russia, where his estranged son (played by Jai Courtney) is caught up in a daring prison escape of a rogue political leader. The film, which opens Feb. 14, also stars Sebastian Koch and Yuliya Snigir, with Mary Elizabeth Winstead expected to return for a cameo as McClane’s daughter.

    Huuuhhhhhhmmmmmmmm. Don’t know. Seems… like it might have all the negatives of the last flick without the positives of the ones that came before it. That said, it’s a teaser, and the action looks good. But am i the only one who thinks his son looks almost as old as willis?

    “rogue political leader” –> political jingoism means I won’t be paying money to see this movie.

    Rogue political leader simply means Putin and his protege Medvedev, what’s wrong with that? Obama’s administration is so far up their backsides it isn’t even funny and Romney/Ryan will be too. Rogue is the new word for ally. Get with the program dude. Just another overpaid vacation for Willis to destroy the Die Hard franchise even further.
