Bruce Willis Die Hard

If Die Hard is one of the quintessential Christmas movies, then the upcoming A Good Day To Die Hard, the fifth film in the John McClane saga, might be the quintessential Valentine’s Day movie. That’s because, as 20th Century Fox confirmed to EW, the Bruce Willis vehicle will be released on Feb. 14, 2013. Next year, the Die Hard franchise will celebrate its 25th anniversary.

And speaking of middle-aged butt-kicking action stars, Liam Neeson will reprise his role as take-no-prisoners dad Bryan Mills for Taken 2, which will hit theaters on Columbus Day weekend, Oct. 5, 2012. The original became a sleeper hit in 2009 when it grossed over $226 million worldwide.
