Watch: International Trailer For 'A Good Day To Die Hard' Sees The Return Of Mary Elizabeth Winstead

It's simple math: with a PG-13 rating, "Live Free Or Die Hard" earned more domestically and worldwide than any other installment in the franchise. And since the MPAA considers F-bombs to be worse than bullets, 20th Century Fox likely realizes that they can draw in those teens who don't see movies with their parents and keep up the action and excitement folks expect from the series. However, one thing that it can't include is John McClane's trademark "Yipee ki-yay motherfucker," because won't someone please think of the children. In 'Live Free' the expletive was interrupted by a gunshot, and whether or not this movie goes R (we doubt it), it looks like they've found another way around it.

A Good Day To Die Hard

It's simple math: with a PG-13 rating, "Live Free Or Die Hard" earned more domestically and worldwide than any other installment in the franchise. And since the MPAA considers F-bombs to be worse than bullets, 20th Century Fox likely realizes that they can draw in those teens who don't see movies with their parents and keep up the action and excitement folks expect from the series. However, one thing that it can't include is John McClane's trademark "Yipee ki-yay motherfucker," because won't someone please think of the children. In 'Live Free' the expletive was interrupted by a gunshot, and whether or not this movie goes R (we doubt it), it looks like they've found another way around it.

The first poster for the movie has landed, and has replaced "motherfucker" with "Russia" -- ha ha. The slapdash one sheet with Bruce Willis' giant head seems to suggest we might be getting a few character posters -- or maybe not, considering that Jai Courtney is the only other "name" (barely) in a mostly Euro cast. In case you forgot, this latest adventure with find Papa and Junior McClane taking on some Russians as if it was the '80s all up in here. John Moore ("Max Payne," "The Omen," "Behind Enemy Lines") directs so....yeah....

And to go along with the new looks is an international trailer of the film, which offers up a bit more footage than the domestic spot, while keeping the same tone. And oh hey, there's Mary Elizabeth Winstead who looks like she's in the movie mostly to drop John McClane off at the airport. And while there's little in the way of plot (it seems McClane is being sent to escort some kind of bad guy) it basically looks like one long chase movie.

"A Good Day To Die Hard" will get you laid on Valentine's Day. New image above, poster and trailer below.[EW/Kinopoisk]
