Neither have I. Possible re-shoots? If that's the case, THAT's not a good sign.

It is a red flag but I try not to assume the worst right away-- well, maybe for Die Hard, but remember that Amazing Spider-Man (which you said you liked) had a big chunk of reshoots and Toy Story 2 was pretty much almost entirely reshot maybe six months before it's release.

My biggest concern is that Bruce Willis and the production company went into this without a completed script. Granted I've stayed away from knowing anything pertaining to spoilers regarding this installment so I can't say much about that. But Action movies in general always think they can get away with not having a completed script because they have the mentality that bigger and more explosions will cover up that fact. I'm just hoping for the best....but expecting the worst, even though I dig the trailer for the most part. Sad to say.

Given the script stories that Kevin Smith was talking about that happened on the last Die Hard, I'm sure that's the case (multiple writers, all with different ideas and goals, overloaded with studio notes).

New trailer....

Quote
A Good Day To Die Hard has released a brand new trailer in which John McClane and son Jack unleash a family-sized can of hurt on a posse of Eurobaddies.

Plot details remain distinctly blurry, but what we can glean from this new trailer is that the bad guys are Russian, they hate Americans (naturally) and they’re looking to get their hands on a job-lot of uranium.

That’s pretty much it as far as the storytelling goes in this trailer, with the rest of the two minutes 30 dedicated to explosions, wisecracks and general mayhem.

Take a look, below…

I thought the Trailer was good for what it was. Having said that, it doesn't feel right. Doesn't feel like it's part of the Die Hard cannon. I dunno. Am I the only one that feels this way?

I've watched it a couple more times and I think it has to do with the lack of Bruce Willis in it more than anything else. By that I mean he should have been in it more than what he is.

This is getting slammed by the critics. Usually I could care less, but since it seems be universal on so many bad things, I decided not to go see it this weekend.

I wasn't expecting this to be the greatest movie ever, but I wasn't expecting scathing reviews either. Sigh.
