Your First Look at 'A Good Day to Die Hard'

A Good Day to Die Hard

Twenty-five years after he first kicked butt at Nakatomi Plaza, John McClane will return to action in A Good Day to Die Hard next February -- and Entertainment Weekly has our first look at his latest mission.

It's just a still, so it doesn't give away much -- basically, it tells us things we already knew: One, that Bruce Willis will be starring alongside Jai Courtney, who plays his all-grown-up son Jack; and two, that both McClanes will end up toting guns.

Beyond that, pretty much everything is under wraps -- which is actually quite refreshing in a day and age when we're starting to see trailers for trailers, and most of a movie's big twists are given away long before it reaches theaters.

One thing we do know is that director John Moore will play up the "fish out of water" element of the series by taking the McClanes to Russia. As Courtney put it in an interview with EW, "What could be further out of water for him than Russia?"

Courtney also made it clear that the dysfunctional dynamic that has plagued the McClane family since day one will continue here. "The relationship isn’t always functional," he says of the father-son duo. "These are two guys who have been estranged for some time. John likes to wing it, see what happens. Jack’s more of a strategist."
