Yipee ki-yay mother Russia! Yes, you've likely read the dumb tagline on the teaser poster and now the real poster has arrived for "Die Hard 5," aka "A Good Day To Die Hard."

What's a Jai Courtney? Good thing you asked. He's a relatively unknown Australian actor -- don't worry, he does a decent American accent -- and since Fox wants to make sure you're not unprepared, they've given you this handy featurette so you're not taken aback by the younger, handsomer version of Bruce Willis who popped out of nowhere into this series. Are they going to hand the torch to him later on once Willis is too old to credibly take on action leads? Who knows, but surely Fox will be keeping on eye on his test screening scores. 

Co-starring Cole Hauser, Sebastian Koch, Yuliya Snigir, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Lucy McClane, get your love in order as "A Good Day To Die Hard" opens up appropriately on Valentines Day 2013. [EW]
