For the first time since 1995's DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE, I have missed out on seeing a DIE HARD film on the big screen. My wife wasn't keen on "wasting" a date night on A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD when it arrived in theaters this past Valentine's Day, and as a work-at-home Dad, I just don't have much time to hit the theater. Now, the fifth installment of the popular franchise will arrive on Digital HD on May 14 and on Blu-ray and DVD June 4 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. They hit The Rock Father with all the specs earlier today, and I'm sharing them with you below...
A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD
Bruce Willis is back in action — mind-blowing, heart-stopping, rip-roaring action — as John McClane, the heroic New York cop with a knack for being in the wrong place at the right time. John’s latest predicament takes him all the way to Russia to track down his estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney), who has been imprisoned in Moscow. But the mission takes a deadly turn as father and son must join forces to thwart a nuclear weapons heist that could trigger World War III!
Twenty-five years after the classic thriller Die Hard was released, A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD takes the action to a whole new level with the 2-disc Blu-ray Extended Edition featuring over two hours of intense extras. Between the Anatomy of a Car Chase, an hour long behind-the-scenes documentary that looks at the making of the movie, commentary with the Director and deleted scenes, the Blu-ray proves that two McClanes are better than one.
