Die Hard 5 and Fantastic Four Reboot Gets Potentially Shitty Titles

8 Comments

Harry Knowles over at AICN apparently knows a celebrity or two. Or a few hundred. Besides having Sylvester Stallone and Robert Rodriguez on his speed dial (and his on theirs), the big bundle of movie geekness says he’s heard, by way of rumor, what the titles for the upcoming “Die Hard” sequel (part 5, in case you’re keeping count at home) and “Fantastic Four” reboot will be.

Wait for it… wait for it …

“Die Hard 24/7″ and “Fantastic Four: Reborn”.

The “FF” title sounds obvious and lazy, and seems to indicate FOX really is planning to reboot the sucker rather than continue with the franchise via sequels. But I don’t get the “Die Hard” one. “24/7″? What does that mean, exactly? Are they going all Jack Bauer on us with real time?

Knowles also name drops Stallone (hey, I would too if Sly has me on speed dial), and relates how the actor/director has shown the finished “Expendables” (a “Hard R” movie, apparently) to Bruce Willis, and that it might have convinced Willis to steer clear of a PG-13 rating for the next “Die Hard” movie. That seems quite the leap. And besides, I didn’t think “Live Free or Die Hard” was really that bad, despite not having an “R” rating. I kinda liked it, actually, but maybe that’s just me.

    I liked “Die hard witha Vengeance” too. As for the titles, I'm imaginging that this will take place over a week long period as opposed to the one day thing in the previous movies. As for FF that really is lazy.

    Yeah, and that's why the FF title is probably true. It's uber lazy on the studio's part. LOL.

    THE FF one isnt that BAD – too bad they couldnt do reborn as a 2 part movie where they fight the HULK — Fantastic Four, Volume 1, #25 and #26, 1964

    Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Superheroes. There it's the comic's title and it'd be a better film title than Reborn. That title just says so over. Simple tagline too.
    Friends. Family. Heroes. The Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Superheroes.

    “Fantastic Four: So You Didn't Buy Jessica Alba as a Brilliant Scientist, But She Was Hot, Right?” (too long?)

    LoL. Hilarious! Yeah i never bought that, and I'm glad they didn't try adn force it. They just kinda let it go in the second film.

    WOAH!! 21ST Century FOX should actually be called 21ST Century FUX! They are just too greedy and too hard headed to just let go of this franchise. They failed twice with EPIC PROPORTIONS and think that they are going to make $300+ million again. Marvel Studios needs to keep a lock down on The Kree,The Skrulls,Thanos,FireLord,Drax,Guardians Of The Galaxy,Adam Worlock and any other major or minor character that are'nt direct or exclusive FF characters. They need to do this immediately!!!!!!!!!!
