A Good Day to Die Hard trailer online
The trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard has arrived online and it looks great for the build up and the action, the father-son part I'm not so sure about. I've never been sure about the idea to be honest but it does look better and work better than I thought in just this short clip, especially as it portrays McClane Jr. as rather different to his father, well to begin with anyway.
Not to worry though there are big set pieces, huge explosions, big guns, the catchphrase, oh and a sexy half dressed underneath the leathers lady who is undoubtedly bad. Now there's a film all on its own.
However if you are expecting some semblance of a story from the trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard well forget it, that's not what you want to or are going to get to see.
For the story you don't want or need a trailer, well that's what the studio thinks, we need a blurb, and here's the one that comes with the trailer through Apple Trailers:
Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane, for the first time, finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack--unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes discover that their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes.
Aha! You see he's not really bad he's working for the CIA, making him much better and more equipped than his Dad. This is going to turn into The Young Die Hard come the next film isn't it?
I do like the tagline though, "Yippee Ki Yay Mother Russia". Nice. Come on though; give us some of that story please.
I guess though the one good thing is that we're seeing the John Moore direction is strong, in what we get to see that is, let's hope that he delivers one of his better films and Skip Woods comes through with the story.
