A fifth installment, "A Good Day To Die Hard," is due next month, and it looks like, well, another "Die Hard" film. Perhaps the one difference is that Willis has a son (played by Aussie Jai Courtney) and the series could ostensibly position itself on handing over the mantle to him one day. But old habits, er, die hard, and like "Mission: Impossible" and "Indiana Jones," rather than actively hand over the series to a younger player, these films go the sitcom route and introduce a new child character who's a thorn in the parents' side. But what do we know? Clearly some people are going to turn out in droves for this one. It just might not be us or our audience (stranger things have happened though).
Directed by John Moore ("Behind Enemy Lines"), this fifth film in the franchise stars Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch, Yulia Snigir, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Anne Vyalitsyna, and opens in IMAX (and conventional theaters too) on February 14.
