A Good Day To Die Hard gets a teaser trailer: watch now

A Good Day To Die Hard (shudder) released an official image yesterday , and has wasted no time following up with a teaser trailer, which you can watch below.

Yahoo! Movies (opens in new tab) got their hands on the video, which cans the idea of emphasising plot or character in favour of all-out action. Bullets rain, cars explode and windows shatter to a glorious classical music crescendo.

Less than 30 seconds into the trailer, Bruce Willis’ John McClane looks to turn around another very bad day with the help of a shotgun.

We were a little surprised by the lack of John McClane Jr. (Jai Courtney) in the teaser, considering the father-son antics looked to be one of the fivequel’s key selling points.

But when you’ve got Brucie’s signature character laying waste to practically an entire nation, only the most churlish of action fans will be complaining.

Get watching the trailer for A Good Day To Die Hard (or Die Hard 5 , as you’ll know doubt be calling it) now:

A Good Day To Die Hard , directed by John Moore and co-starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, opens in the UK on 14 February 2012.
