Yippie Ki Yay: International Trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard Looks Like a Worthy Entry to the Franchise

"We're not a hugging family."
Earlier this month, the teaser trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth installment in the Die Hard franchise, was released online and, while brief on story, showed that the return of John McClane (Bruce Willis) was going to be filled with action.
The latest, international trailer borrows most of the teaser, but begins by slowing down the proceedings to show that A Good Day to Die Hard is a Die Hard movie after all. Starting with the use of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, the trailer is filled with homages to the first movie: McClane going to a new place for the first time, chatting with his driver about being a cop, and a group of European men causing explosions. There's also the inclusion of Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who played McClane's daughter in 2007's Live Free or Die Hard, though, this time around, it's McClane's son Jack (Spartacus: Blood and Sand actor Jai Courtney) that needs saving. Or does he?
Trailers that will knock your shoes off
There's also a new teaser poster for A Good Day to Die Hard courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, which features Willis' face and an appropriate (and safer) rewording of McClane's signature catchphrase.
A Good Day to Die Hard was written by Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and directed by John Moore (Max Payne, The Omen).
