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.

    Actually watched the first three couple of weeks ago and Nix, they were seriously violent affairs in that good old-fashioned squibby way. But even if it’s a simple matter of showing bullet hits on cannon fodder bad guys for this one, looking forward to some proper R-rated mayhem

      Huh it’s been a while, so you’re probably right. Nowadays I’ve only seen the previous movies on TV (edited and such) so that might explain my notion that it was never that violent.

    Actually, there was an R (unrated) rated cut for Len Wiseman’s “Live Free Or Die Hard”. I actually have it on dvd. It was a much better cut and felt more like a Die Hard movie.

    I hope this is a new trilogy or a start to a new spin off with young Jai as the lead, as my box set is like Die Hard Quadrilogy…kind of sealed right there

      Meh, I’m not sure I want the torch passed. If they’re going to keep going with these Pass it with Joh McClaine’s death, but give me another team up with the son if the chemistry works! Bring in The son’s CO they have to save or something.
