Fans of Bruce Willis are no doubt delighted to learn that director John Moore’s A Good Day to Die Hard has been rated R by the MPAA.
Moviegoers were a little irritated when the series’ previous entry Live Free or Die Hard was slapped with a PG-13 rating. Not only did this mean the franchise’s liberal use of cinematic blood would be tamed down, the main character’s iconic catchphrase would also suffer as a result. After all, you can’t have an F-bomb in a PG-13 movie regardless of how popular it is.
According to Den of Geek, the latest TV spot for A Good Day to Die Hard features the aforementioned rating in all its glory. While most people generally don’t get worked up over a film’s rating, fans of the franchise are no doubt relieved that the flick will be as foul-mouthed and action-packed as the pre-Live Free sequels.
The official synopsis for the film reads as follows:
“Iconoclastic, take-no-prisoners cop John McClane, for the first time, finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help his wayward son Jack–unaware that Jack is really a highly-trained CIA operative out to stop a nuclear weapons heist. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, the two McClanes discover that their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes.”
Spartacus: Vengeance star Jai Courtney will portray McClane’s son, while Scott Pilgrim vs. the World alum Mary Elizabeth Winstead is slated to reprise her role as the unstoppable detective’s daughter. Winstead previously tackled the role in Len Wiseman’s Live Free or Die Hard.
