Special thanks to Mother Brain for sending me the link to IMDB‘s article about the Die Hard 5 update that you are about to read. I have been pretty busy this week and today is our (Melissa and I) anniversary and I’ve been having a pretty busy week. Needless to say, I hope that I would not have missed this, but I’m glad someone was paying attention.

News such as Die Hard does not have a place on tomorrow’s Entertainment RANDOMNESS and needs to be placed by itself. Which is why I am writing this posting today.

Word from 20th Century Fox is that the fifth Die Hard movie will be called: “A Good Day to Die Hard”

No, I’m not kidding about that one. At all! I wish I was. I could live with “Live Free or Die Hard” but come on now…

Also, as confirmed previously on this blog, John Moore (Max Payne) is directing from a script by Skip Woods (A-Team, X-men Origins: Wolverine) and the release date will be (as of right now): February 14th, 2013. What a great way to spend your Valentine’s Day huh?


Fox has also given us a plot for the sequel:

Since the first “Die Hard” in 1988, John McClane (Bruce Willis) has found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the skills and attitude to always be the last man standing, making him enemy #1 for terrorists the world over. Now, McClane faces his greatest challenge ever, this time on an international stage, when his estranged son Jack is caught up in the daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader, and father and son McClane must work together to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy.

I for one am still going to see this movie, I just hope that a bunch of the crap that seems to be being tossed into this cauldron called Die Hard 5 gets well done by the time I see this on the big screen. I’m not excited about the stupid title.  Not happy about the stupid release date. And the plot just doesn’t seem very Die Hard-ish.

But I’ll save my thoughts for when more information comes out and when a trailer comes out.
