Some franchises are just too good, or stubborn, to disappear, and it looks like the Die Hard series has gleefully joined that fraternity. Now on its fifth installment, titled A Good Day to Die Hard, John McClane (Bruce Willis) is back again to take down some Russian terrorists along with his son (Jai Courtney). And the debut trailer for the movie does little to make us believe that this sequel will be any different from the others. But, honestly, that’s not a bad thing.
Filled with plenty of explosions, some Beethoven, and a nice catchphrase from Willis at the end, this teaser does exactly what it set out to do. It gets us interested in the movie without spelling out the plot. Maybe next time we’ll see a bit more, but we’re pleased for now.
A Good Day to Die Hard will hit theaters on February 14, 2013.
