Well. This certainly is…interesting. After getting our hands on the first official picture from A Good Day to Die Hard (the—sigh—fifth Die Hard film) yesterday, today we have the first teaser trailer for the film. And boy oh boy, is it ever a generic and slapdash mix of things blowing up, half-naked gals on motorcycles, and Bruce Willis smirking and AARP-ing his way through the mess. Check it out.
The film reportedly concerns Willis’ long suffering John McClane character teaming up with his estranged son (he already teamed up with his daughter against some internet terrorists in the last film, Live Free or Die Hard) to apparently blow up and shoot half of Russia, if the trailer is to be believed. It’s all pretty ridiculous, and there has yet to be any example of what plot contrivance will explain how a cop from Jersey is somehow battling the Russians. Also: he’s battling the Russians, because apparently it’s 1984 all over again. Dig it:
So there you have it: generic explosions, loud music, incomprehensible shoot-em-ups, pretty women, a young actor to appeal to younger audiences, and Bruce Willis smirking a whole lot. Yippee kay yay, Hollywood.
A Good Day to Die Hard opens on February 14, 2013.
What do you think of the trailer?
