Yippee-Kay-Yay, Mother... It's A New Trailer And One Sheet For A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD!!

The Kidd here...

I've got my fingers crossed that a good DIE HARD film is still possible. I was optimistic after seeing the teaser trailer roll through, but seeing this new trailer and one sheet that 20th Century Fox unveiled today... well, it's a bit of an understatement to say they're a bit on the eye-rolling side.

The trailer (courtesy of Yahoo! UK) just makes this new chapter's story seem a bit on the outlandish side... which is something considering the films have gotten more far-fetched as they've progressed... but that poster (via Entertainment Weekly)... 

Come on, man. I get that "Yippee-kay-yay" has become the default catchphrase of the franchise, but do you really need to bastardize it quite like that?

I'm still hoping for the best with the fifth DIE HARD... but I'm also preparing for the worst. 

I know Bruce Willis still has got it in him. It's just a matter of if we get to see it one more time.

    Seriously Though

    by Notliw

    I'm hoping Willis can pull this off. After seeing run around in Looper, I'm not sure that physically he's capable of all of the action sequences he pulled off in the prior Die Hards. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    You sure Willis "has it in him" for another actual DH movie?

    by Darth Macchio

    What the fuck has happened?...

    by Darkness

    That trailer reaffirms my love for Die Hard's 1,2 and with a Vengeance. Sorry Mr. Mcclane, you're time is up. It feels like the Mcclane family christmas Holiday special. Anyway, to take your mind of this abomination of exploiting Mr. Mccalne's activities - Varese Sarabande records have a 2 disc deluxe edition of Michael Kamen's score for "Die Hard 2 - Die Harder" - gotta be better than this...Well?

  • Michael Kamen just re-arranged Beethoven's 9th Symphony "Ode to Joy" movement. Maybe you already knew that, and were being facetious?

  • Fucking Christ almighty; what a horrible, pathetic attempt! I never saw the last one and have no plans to (until the scrumtious Mary Elizabeth Winstead decides to FINALLY get naked, I don't think my hormones can take watching her) and this one will probably be even worse!

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 1:18 p.m. CST


    by DrMorbius

    Hi to you too. Welcome to the talkbacks.

  • but yeah, it makes no sense as a catch phrase, especially without the =motherfucker= at the end. As for it being a PG-13, it kind of sucks but aside from the profanity, if you watch the original again, the violence wasn't all that R rated compared to shit out nowadays. The guy getting his legs shot up is a scene that comes to mind I guess. I would actually say that Taken was more graphic than Die Hard.

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 1:22 p.m. CST

    Won't give these assholes a dime

    by Darth Macchio

    Sorry but with that last fiasco and the nerve of WalterB to come on this very geeky movie-geek website and tell us how awesome it was going to be... ..and then it proceeds to take a giant and purposeful shit on movie geeks? That's like going to a dog-lover show, talking up a new show you want them to see where people "love" dogs...only to take them to a restaurant where people are having a fantastic time killing and eating dogs with bar-b-que sauce and a bib. Fuck you. We MADE you. You shit on us? Fuck you. No money from me for any new movies featuring the imposter you call John McLane. That the movie itself was crap was just gravy on the schadenfreude sandwich but given how they've completely killed John McLane and turned him into a belligerent, insulting dick...well, I'll sink to the idiot/pretentious low of hoping this fails utterly. On every level. I don't hate on a franchise lightly, and i'm not usually a grudge holder for a creative work..especially one that may have not only been the best action movie ever but without question redefined what a brilliant action blockbuster can be....only to gutterball into predictable and banal mediocrity while maintaining that production-specific self-loathing bullshit just pisses me off to no end. LFoDH is one of few HW films where I'm angry at the screen for most of the entire run-time. Angry at the characters and pissed that they can't get McLane right whatsoever and, instead of just not doing it at all, come up with a half-baked dickier version of the Butch character from Pulp Fiction and try to play it off as McLane. Even that goofy 2nd one got McLane perfectly..and I'm guessing Willis had a lot to do with that (as Harlin is basically a hack director) and I also think Willis is still mostly responsible for how McLane is portrayed today...and it's not the same McLane whatsoever... Sorry to rant but this blithely side-stepping the blatant insulting our movie geek world while still counting on "us" (who are the biggest action movie fans if not movie geeks?) to make their pocketbook is unacceptable to me. It's a fucking disgrace.

    Prediction for the next one: John McClane in Space

    by You Have MY Voice

    I mean, that's the last locale left, isn't it? IN SPACE, NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU DIE HARD. I'd apologize for jinxing everyone with this shitty idea, but you KNOW some exec at Fox has already pitched it. I love John McClane. I'll probably see a matinee for this one, as contrived as it looks But I agree with whoever says this franchise hasn't been "DIE HARD" since the first one.

  • He obviously has no jurisdiction and isn't on "official police business" in this one. At least that's something. Even though I liked Die Hard 3 better than 2, the fact that he was just a cop doing his job wasn't as interesting as just being a guy in the wrong place who even the cops were against. Why didn't they ever bring back Sgt. Powell anyway (except for the cameo in 2).

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 1:31 p.m. CST

    all the visual flair of a Nash Bridges episode

    by joel007

    The way Willis plays McClane now isn't even recognizable from the MCClane from the first three. He plays him like he's on lithium or something. And what about this movie makes it necessary to be a Die Hard flick? They're now just sticking the McClane action figure in nondescript action premises. Skip Woods wrote this. That's all you need to know. People piss and moan about the state of the business. What screenwriters have turned into in the last twenty years is every bit as responsible.

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 1:33 p.m. CST

    and that poster

    by joel007

    is an EMBARRASSMENT. I'd imagine Willis doesn't care though-- I'm sure Fox's check cleared.

    That "if it's not R, it's crap" argument is fanboy bullshit...

    by Mikey Wood's ridiculous. I don't care how much blood or tits are shown or how many d-bombs are tossed around, if it's good, it's good and if it ain't it ain't. Hell, some of the best action movies in history are PG even. Blood squibs and tits do not a quality film make. You guys need to seriously drop it.

  • Oct. 25, 2012, 1:48 p.m. CST


    by _SnakePlissken_

    if Bruce Willis isn't aloud to say "fuck" he ceases to be John McClane.. just some bald old guy

  • People (and by that I mean fanboys) need to get rid of their rose tinted glasses. Live Free Or Die Hard was no different than part 2 or 3. And now 5 looks to be even more of the same. We all understand you grew up with parts 2 & 3. You weren't sitting at your computer watching TV spots and trailers and judging the entire film based on marketing gimmicks. And you certainly weren't purposely spoiling the story ahead of time. You simply watched the movie and went along for the ride. Try that again sometime. And maybe, just maybe, you wouldn't come off as such whiny fanboys for the rest of your lives.

    The key to a good Die Hard flick: Outlandish action + Plausible plot.

    by Royston Lodge

    Die Hard is supposed to be outlandish, but only where the action is concerned. The plot, on the other hand, and the threat, should be plausible. In other words, it's all about John McClane using a REALLY excessive amount of force to solve a relatively plausible problem. IMHO, of course.

    bantuwind -- Not really true.

    by Lucky13

    I was born in '80. Saw DH 1&2 on VHS a few times as a kid, enjoyed them well enough, but never got 'hooked' until I bought the DVD box set in roughly 2005. Part 2, while upping the over-the-top action still has a very legit vibe to it. I like part 3, but feel as though it's a bit too clinical. Almost like McTiernan channeling the ghost of Nolan future. But damn... Live Free is just a boring slop of emotionless, bloodless gunplay. Just could not get into it, and I really did give it an honest try. There's nothing rose-tinted about my opinion... the last sequel just had no heart and no guts. Hopefully this new one will rectify that. My one nitpick about the trailer is the 'not a hugging family' line.... or more directly, John's response to it. I don't think the McClane would be proud of that. The JM from DH1-3 would feel sad and pensive about that statement, not 'hell yeah' or whatever he said.

    As for Xmen

    by Kakii

    Not only that but Wolverine is now a sequel to X3! BS is definate, but who ever does it better have the balls to give us the money shot of Wolverine FUBAR'd by a Sentinel or the movie is fucking doomed for a stoning!

  • Die Hard is a masterpiece of action cinema and one of the best ever made. I also love DH2 but it comes slightly under the first because it does feel like a rehash (Christmas terrorists, saving the wife) but the movie's only fault is that it has John McClane when it would have a lot more respect if it was a stand alone action film with a different name. I don't like Die Hard with a Vengence. It feels like a generic action film compared to the first two and that's probably because the script was originally called "Simon Says" and it kicked around Hollywood for a few years. It was also going to be a Lethal Weapon sequel at one point. This is in direct contrast to the first two movie that were based on books; Nothing Lasts Forever by Roderick Thorp and 58 Minutes by Walter Wager respectively. The one thing going for DHWAV is that it does have McClane running around New York but I would have prefered that they get away from him mowing down terrorists and do something closer to Nighthawks (1981) which is, IMHO, Stallone's best movie. Live Free or Die Hard was fucking trash and felt like a Bond clone. I've watched it ONCE and will never do so again. Getting back to Nighthawks, I really wish that they had just taken the McClane character and had him working as a cop in New York in a few sequels. Look for some good cop thriller novels set in New York and adapt them for the screen. Which now brings us to this fucking piece of shit A Good Day to Die Hard. Yet another load of fucking wank, Directed by another goddman hack with the usual orange and teal cinematography which looks absolutely terrible. And once again it's McClane taking on a fucking army. I mentioned Max Payne 3 and the reason is that game is EXACTLY what I wanted from a Die Hard sequel all these years. Sure, Payne is mowing people down but the story is soo good and takes the Die Hard example of a burned out ex-cop getting sucked into events beyond his control to which he has to blaze his way out while finding the truth. It's clear that Bruce Willis simply doesn't give a shit about his signature character which is why I'll be skipping this and downloading it at my earliest convenience before watching it once which will most likely be the last time I ever lay my eyes on it. RIP Die Hard 1988-1990

    Laughing at the Live Free or Die Hard hate...

    by Bruno

    Everyone on AICN hated it. But then you get people here who make excuses for well choreographed crap like "The Raid Redemption" or jizz over stupidity like "The Expendables". There is nothing wrong with Die Hard 4 as an action flick. It's huge, overblown and implausible, but so were the other 3. If someone else that AICN has boners over directed the exact same PG13 movie, you would all be singing it's praises. This trailer looks bad compared to the last one. At least the last one was ridiculous enough to entertain. And it made the most money out of all of them, so of course they'll keep going.

    by steves

    Kevin Smith is a shit actor as well as a shit director. I'm so pleased that his film making career has completely fallen apart. It makes me happy that he is such a joke. He's like Ricky Gervais; peaked too early, then got a huge ego and immediately threw quality control out the window, finding instead some sort of perverse pride in churning out pure lowest common denominator horseshit for unintelligent fanboys. It's amazing how far you can get off the back of one hit. Thankfully the masses eventually wise up. Fuck off Kevin Smith, you boring fuck. Also Kevin Smith is morbidly obese. Ricky Gervais isn't morbidly obese as far as I know - I think he lost weight recently - but he still has the head of a fat person. Like his head will always, always look like it should be attached to a fat body. LOL.

    Can't defend new crap by saying the old stuff is also crap

    by Darth Macchio

    When you know it's not. True, DH2 isn't worlds above LFoDH but it's also not remotely the same John McLane or even the same cinematic 'world' where the first 3 films take place. While I remember little of LFoDH (outside of the always wonderful/beautiful Maggie Q and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, of course), the only scene that hearkened back to the original and true John McLane was the 15 second scene where he jumps out of the car and hops up on the roof, looking down each intersection at the traffic jams and accidents and starts to visibly piece it together that something isn't right. 2 seconds later he's back to being an insulting prick and completely unlikeable "hero" but then it's just like all the other Die Hard movies right? I mean the only reason anybody finds fault with LFoDH and, invariably, with AGDtDH once its out, is only because they're pg-13 and thus cannot have a "Yippe ki yay mother fucker!" right? Wow..amazing...all this hate and all these reasons why the 4th film sucked leading to predictions about the 5th film but yet the secret and ONLY reason we all are lambasting the thing is the inability to say 'mother fucker' in a pg-13 film? Sheesh...we all know opinions are subjective. while i could certainly be wrong, it occurs to me that some of you defending LFoDH are doing so more out of loyalty to the character than to quality of the film (how can anyone say LFoDH is the same as DH2 or DHwaV? have you seen all 3 movie close together? world's of difference on every level, character being the most important!). there's some delightfully refreshing non-pc racial dialog in DHwaV between Willis and Jackson (also a mini-copy-buddy movie which works great to me), great interplay with the police at the station ("McLane is a toilet bug"...followed by Willis mouthing 'Toilet bug?' - makes me laugh every time), a genuine puzzle/riddle to solve (3/5 gallon jugs is an old one), a fantastic bad guy (how is Jeremy Irons as Peter "Simon" Krieg not a better villain than the naked karate Colonel Stuart from DH2 even if William Sadler was great in the role?), fantastic sub-bad-guys (crazy hot knife wielding blonde killer girl and the german guy with the perfect Judge Dredd frown) a perfectly self-contained and absurdly ambitious 'caper' (no bullshit 'Speed' or 'Speed 2 - electric boogalo' vengeance routine like in LFoDH)...that great close-quarters shoot out in the bank vault elevator (also bloody as hell...something you also cannot do in your oh so 'not a big deal' pg-13 rating) I could go on... and some of you think that all those viewpoints are meaningless next to the actual reason? not being able to say 'mother fucker' in a pg-13 flick? its like your whole family gets run over by a milk truck and a buddy who sees everything says to you "I bet your pissed you won't get those family discounts any more eh?" yup..that's why i'd be pissed too. family discounts.

  • While I do actually like the new poster, the trailer itself was pretty much terrible. I was already skeptical about the inclusion of McClane's son, but after hearing a couple brief exchanges from the preview I'm already getting worse feelings about DH5. And who the hell decided that the McClane family isnt a hugging family? Maybe the makers of this havent watched Die Hard 1 in a long time. Or maybe just watched a different movie than the one I watched. Either way, WORST DIE HARD TRAILER EVER!!!

    It's not hatred. It's taking joy in fake-talents being found out. They're both one-hit wonders as far as I can see, yet their careers have been prolonged unnecessarily because the people in power foolishly believe that lightning will strike twice. KS's films got worse. RG's output went from good to shit almost immediately (the stuff he's coming out with now is beyond dreadful - that Life Is Too Short was fucking embarrassing). Simon Pegg is pretty harmless, or at least isn't on my radar in the same way. However I suppose if I think about it, I do sort of get the impression that he would sell his own grandmother if it would help his career. Oh, and he also worked with Tom Cruise twice, and everyone worthwhile on the planet knows that Tom Cruise is a fucking cunt who has actually used slave labor. I do have hatred for Tom Cruise, and it is completely justified.

    R rating means the movie can flow...

    by Andrew Coleman

    You can feel in DH4 how much they tried to aim for PG-13. R rated movies can do what they want. PG-13 has to walk with careful footsteps. With the language to gun shots... In DH4 when Bruce is in the geeks apartment. The guy starts shooting through the wall... Bruce grabs the guys hair and pulls him through the wall and yanks his head down violently... They had to cut the "snap" just because of the rating. That is beyond stupid and you can see the movie was designed around the pg-13 concept. I believe that's why they tossed in the fighter plane bit. So when people bitch about the rating it's not just the "fucks" that matters. It's the flow.

    If you whine about PG13 and let DREDD bomb... FUCK YOU.

    by TommyGavinsEgo

    You were given what you wanted. Geek nirvana. Full on, gun-toting, bloodthirsty, mean, ballsy, R-RATED action, adapted faithfully from a geek property by obvious fans, perfectly cast, perfectly played, with a minimum of bullshit CGI. YOU HAD THE FILM YOU ALL CRAVE AND YOU LET IT BOMB. Hardly any of you went to see it. Now, I'm sure a few true card-carrying geeks here did. But don't anyone whine about studios watering shit down to achieve a PG13 and rake in the dollars, when one little movie which was - oh yes - ONE OF THE BEST ACTION FLICKS IN YEARS - went down the shitter. I saw it because (a) I'm a fan of Dredd, and (b) the makers DESERVED my money for aiming at an "R" and not giving a shit about pandering to fuckwit teenagers texting and yapping in the theater. This isn't directed at anyone in particular, just the general all-talk-no-action geeksters. You're bringing this watered down diarohhea on yourselves.

    Eat Shit and Die Hard...

    by ThulsaBoom

    ...nice richie_t.

  • ...if this was Die Hard, the McClane's would be covered in scratches and blood from crashing through those windows. John just runs over a floor full of broken glass once in Die Hard and his feet are fucked, and bothering him the rest of the movie. It's much closer to us on the realism continuum. This could be The Last Boyscout 2 though. If it was rated 'R' and had the best zinger's ever found in the genre outside the Arnold-verse.

  • It's not more fun that way. It's painful watching this lameass try to match McClane's steps. And he couldn't look less like his son if he tried - what's with the weird egg shape of his face? Then again his daughter in real life has a potato head. But seriously now...I really hope they keep this guy in the background as much as possible, but seeing how heavily the trailer features him... well I'm not going in expecting to love it more than the first 3. There's always that chance it'll be the 4th best one though. The trailers have felt more like die hard so far than any of the last film - but time will tell.

    This Looks Good, also a few thoughts.

    by Jean-Luc Gothos

    I don't see why everyone is giving this movie such a hard time. I mean Die Hard is an action movie, and escapist fun for those watching it. It's suppose to be over the top, and take the audience on an adventure. It's one of the reasons I enjoy movies in the first place. It's not about how realistic it might be or how plausible the scenario. It's about have fun, and just accepting the film on it's own terms without any expections of anything other than have it be entertaining. Just a few thoughts.

  • Oct. 26, 2012, 2:32 a.m. CST

    You're 100% correct about Dredd! People were given a balls out, don't give a fuck, hard-R action film and no-one fucking bothered to go see it.

    by Cobra--Kai

    Saw MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 4 for the first time this week. Thats how you do it. It was comfortably the best MI film since the first one. There was some love and care put into making it a good movie, not just a cash in sequel like DH4. I do like the first part of the trailer with McLane in a cab getting caught up in the wrong place at the wrong time. That had the proper vibe... ...and then he sees the son. The son we never knew he had. Lame. Couldnt the Russian robber guys just have taken McLane hostage, and then he escapes and kills them all one at a time? McLane by himself trying to survive a fucked up situation. Thats how simple it needs to be. You dont need all this son bullshit.

    DREDD and the nature of "plants"...

    by Mikey Wood

    First of all...I love you guys. You're all so reactionary and opinionated and pissed off and...well...filled with complete bullshit. God forbid anyone actually LIKE something these days. CLEARLY they MUST be "studio plants" because. Non-stop hilarity. I went to see DREDD. It sucked. And I'm saying this as a long-time fan of JUDGE DREDD comics starting from the moment I read a GN collected edition in the mid-eighties. The things you fanboys focus on...helmets coming off etc....are so ridiculously miniscule in the great scheme of things. None of it MATTERS if the MOVIE is shit. And DREDD was shit. It was barely advertised here in the states and that might have had something to do with the film's failure but I think it had more to do with A) Hardy anyone here short of comic nerds know who Dredd IS B) Karl Urbain isn't exactly a headliner. He doesn't put asses in seats and, sadly, in this country, the only way an action flick does any business is if there's a big-name star and C) It wasn't very good. Low on budget, thin on plot (even thinner than your average action flick, which is pretty damned thin) and just...kinda bland. Can you imagine? JUDGE DREDD, a property with SO MUCH visual flair...bland. I can't believe I'm saying it, but I enjoyed the Stallone one more. Better production values, sets, etc.

    Now, let's not be too quick to Judge (cwutididthar). Dredd was pretty alright, at least for setting up a franchise.

Also, how the FUCK can you watch those slo-mo scenes and NOT say it doesn't have flair? Did you see it in 2D?

    The Last One


    I don't think they could have done anything to make me less interested in this movie. And I have nothing against sequels, or part 5s, or anything like that. Recently watched both Die Hard and Die Hard with a Vengeance, and enjoyed them. But the last one was meh and this one looks like a triple does of the meh, without even some of the cool visuals that made parts of the last one watchable. I just don't see it. So many other franchises they could be hitting. Can't you just see another 48 hours with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy? I'd totally see that fucking movie. This? Meh.
