Die Hard Week: The next nine Die Hard sequels revealed
A Good Day To Die Hard has exploded into American cinemas to the tune of a $25 million opening weekend, meaning Die Hard 6 - already confirmed via mumble on Bruce Willis' One Show appearance - is a near certainty. After that? We're planning the next nine Die Hard movies now so they're not such a terrible shock when they actually happen.

They could teach him everything about being a cop except how to live with a mistake. And how to NOT SHOOT KIDS, AL.

Die Hard Week: 10 most memorable incidental Die Hard characters
John McClane? More like Shmon ShmcShmane. There'd be no Die Hard without Bruce Willis, this we know, but just as important to the franchise are the incidental characters: the single-serving supporting roles who make the most of their miniscule screen time. Stand down, McClane: it's time to big up the little guys.

Review: A Good Day To Die Hard

A Good Day To Die Hard
The theory goes that the larger you make John McClane's playground, the less fun there is to be had. Since the original Die Hard, we've gone from a building to an airport to a city to the entire Eastern Seaboard, and now with A Good Day To Die Hard, John McClane ventures to Russia, where more fish out of water jokes than ever await. The law of diminishing returns has largely held true, except this fifth Die Hard movie feels slightly less expansive than the last, and is significantly less silly. It's no closer a relation to the 1988 original, and McClane is more of an indestructible Terminator than ever, but you just can't stay mad at it.

This sort of speaks for itself, hopefully. All stats were counted manually, by me, except for the ones that might be wrong, which were done by someone else.

Die Hard Week: Six actual films that sound like Die Hard sequels
Eschewing the usual numbering conventions for sequels certainly is 'cool' and 'hip' and 'dopes, man'. And yet, with every 'good day to' and 'live free or', the studio bods responsible run the risk of any old film sounding like part of the Die Hard franchise. Particularly ones that already sound like they are part of the Die Hard franchise.

Die Hard Week: I want to hear John McClane say "motherfucker"

Die Hard Week: I want to hear John McClane say "motherfucker"
Today the BBFC confirmed what we'd all feared: that A Good Day To Die Hard would be rated 12A in the UK. Which sucks, obviously, because no one likes to see once proud iconoclasts of badass cinema reduced to suckering kids out of their pocket money with a two-bit Punch and Judy show. I'm a paying adult and I want to hear John McClane say the word "motherfucker". I guess I'm just old-fashioned like that.
