Today's Hot Trailer: Come to Moscow, Have a Few Laughs With Bruce Willis in A Good Day to Die Hard

Yippie Ki-Yay translates to basically the same thing in Russian.
Last time we saw John McClane (Bruce Willis), he was saving his daughter (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) from cyber-terrorists in 2007's Live Free or Die Hard, but for the upcoming A Good Day to Die Hard, McClane will be looking to help his son Jack (Jack Reacher's Jai Courtney) instead.
As revealed in previous trailers, the fifth installment in the Die Hard franchise sees the elder McClane (Willis) travel to Moscow in order to help out his son Jack (Courtney), but in the latest trailer he learns that his offspring is actually "the 007 of Plainfield, New Jersey," forcing the McClanes to team up to dispose of yet another group of European terrorists.
Trailers that bring the family together
For another look at A Good Day to Die Hard, The Sun has another clip of the movie, with Courtney on hand to introduce the footage and discuss his character's relationship with his illustrious father.
It looks like Twentieth Century Fox has more plans for the young Courtney and the Die Hard franchise than they did for Winstead, which shouldn't be a surprise since former Fox chief Tom Rothman described the younger McClane as "more of a hardass than his father."
But could Courtney eventually take over the franchise? Could be. As unlikely as it would seem to have a Die Hard movie without Willis, Courtney recently admitted to Australia's Herald Sun that the possibility is there. "There was talk around that through the casting process," Courtney revealed. "We'll see what happens."
A Good Day to Die Hard was written by Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and directed by John Moore (Max Payne, The Omen).
