    The only possible variations left for the formula are DIE HARD in an office buikling. Or tower. Or both together.

    So you haven't seen Die Hard then?

    Didn't sound like a joke to me either. Poor delivery if that was indeed what he was going for.

    How could we best improve on such delivery?

    (Mildly spoiler-ish but we probably knew most of this already)

    I assume that despite the reference to the Soviet Union, a body which hasn't existed in 20 years, this movie will not, in fact, involve time travel! Good to see that McClane Jr will be a good guy, rather than a fuck-up.

    So I wonder if they're setting this up for McClane Jr to take over the franchise from an ageing Bruce?

    I like the write up as generic as it may sound. I also was thinking Soviet Union? Who wrote this, someone in need of a geopolitical brush up.

    No mention on if they're aiming for an R rating or not.

    I tend to think that since the last one did really well at PG-13 that this one is likely to stay PG-13. Just my hunch.

    I recall reading somewhere that Willis wanted an R rating after he saw how successful The Expendables was last year.

    So, they're combining the worst elements from "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Anal Probes" and the recent Ghost Rider sequel which they could only afford to film in Lower Sheepfuckistan?

    Oh good, a cunty son. Also, I'd not heard about Russia being called the Soviet Union again.

    Dunno what all the whining is about, seems like a perfectly reasonable setup for an action movie.

    Its success or failure will be in the execution, not the studio's ability to write a one paragraph synopsis.

    But Pingfah, condemning films before they're made is an age-old tradition on the board.
