Zero Dark Thirty A Good Day To Die Hard

Santa may have already left the building, but that doesn't mean marketing or advertising stops, as an awards contender and blockbuster hopeful hit the small screen to get your hard earned cash. So let's dive in.

First up....listen, we know. It seems people can't shut up at this point about "Zero Dark Thirty," the most controversial movie of the year that most people haven't seen yet. Both Kathryn Bigelow and Jessica Chastain have weighed in on the politics around the movie, and even Rupert Murdoch has been flapping his social media gums, but enough talk, let's see some stuff from the movie. A new U.K. TV spot has dropped, with a medley of footage new and old, playing up the based-in-fact account of the tale. No matter how you slice it, this is one thriller that will get your pulse pounding, no matter which side of the argument you're on. "Zero Dark Thirty" goes wide on January 11th.

Meanwhile, Bruce Willis returns...again...for another round as John McClane in "A Good Day To Die Hard." Jai Courtney plays his son in the movie that something something something Russia explosions! This pair of TV spots lets you know that it will be loud and wisecrack filled, with some eye candy throw in just because. Take a date on Valentine's Day. Watch below.
