There are only a few franchises that have really weathered cinematic storm, while still maintaing their same charming tendencies that fans fell in love with in their first respective bows. Arguments can be made against this, but for me Die Hard (thanks in large part to is energetic star) is one of the few.
So why do we bring up the latest adventure staring our beleaguered hero, John McClane? Because a brand-spanking new poster and trailer hit the internet today!
The official description for the forthcoming flick:
Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane, for the first time, finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack–unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes discover that their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes.

So there you have it guys, an epic poster that says just enough and a trailer that will make any action fan smile. In my opinion add ’em together and you have what looks to be a movie that’s set to carry on the grand tradition of this fantastic franchise. But what are your thoughts?
