In case you were worried that the upcoming “Die Hard” installment, “A Good Day to Die Hard” might be playing it safe with a PG-13 rating like the previous installment, Len Wiseman’s “Live Free or Die Hard”, you needn’t be. The film has officially been Rated R, news that have now been confirmed by this latest TV spot with the McClanes blowing the shit out of Russia.

I don’t recall the “Die Hard” films being especially gruesome with its violence. “Live Free or Die Hard” seemed to do just fine with the PG-13 rating, though yeah, it was more cartoony than the previous installments. But then again, I always thought that the result of being the fourth entry in a movie franchise.

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 their opposing methods make them unstoppable heroes.

Starring Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Amaury Nolasco, Cole Hauser, Sebastian Koch, Aksel Hennie, and Julia Snigir.

Taking no prisoners in R-rated fashion February 14, 2013.
