Seriously, this is what they can do with computers now? For about two minutes during this 5-minute long trailer for the new Batman game “Batman: Arkham Origins”, I thought this was live-action, though I got hints that it might be CG by the way the characters swayed a bit even when they’re just standing still, a dead giveaway if you ask me. Still, with CGs for games already this advanced, pretty soon who’s going to need Bruce Willis in “Die Hard” when you can just slap in a CG replacement? Nevertheless, it’s a hell of a trailer. Then Deadstroke shows up and it’s on. Gotta say, though, I’m still not the biggest fan of bulky armored looking Batman. How does he jump and disappear all squeaky like in the darkness with that thing on? From Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, “Batman: Arkham Origins »
Bruce Willis with a gun in his hand usually results in pretty decent box office. Emmett and Furla Films apparently thinks so, too, because they’ve tapped the “Die Hard” star to front their upcoming actioner “Expiration”. Written by Brian Tucker (“Broken City”), “Expiration” would find Willis playing “a hitman who is poisoned and desperately searching for an antidote before he dies.” Well, ain’t that ironic. The guy who kills people for a living gets poisoned and now has to find a way to save his own life. Wait, is that ironic? Maybe a little bit. I don’t know, words sometimes confuses me. There are no directors attached to “Expiration” yet, but with Willis already onboard and a $60 million dollar budget ready to be spent, finding someone to call “Action” shouldn’t take too long. Willis is coming off “A Good Day to Die Hard”, which despite awful critical reviews, »
Given that Bruce Willis is best known for Die Hard, surely a film he stars in called Expiration can never end, because he dies hard. Geddit? Hello? Anyway, he has indeed signed on for the lead in hit man thriller Expiration.No, it’s not the complicated struggle of a man battling his way to the shops to find a pint of milk still not past its best before date. Apparently the script, written by Broken City’s Brian Tucker, finds a hit man who discovers that he’s been poisoned and rushes to find a cure. That premise has shades of Crank, but we're guessing it will be less demented than that.According to Variety, the script is in the works now and has a planned start date of next March. What it doesn’t have yet is anyone to direct and tell Bruce who to shoot, but backers »
Bruce Willis is nothing if not totally willing to make fun of his advanced years while still churning out tireless action movies full of mayhem. At least three franchises Willis is currently involved in ("Red," "The Expendables" and "Die Hard") fulcrum around the hey-isn't-this-old-guy-shooting-people-funny thing. Now it's been announced that Willis will star in yet another old dude action movie this time with the name (wait for it) "Expiration." Willis, showing a new level of self-awareness, will star as a hardened hitman who is "poisoned and desperately searching for an antidote before he dies." So… "Crank?" Brian Tucker, who wrote this year's rote political thriller "Broken City," penned the screenplay, which is being produced by Emmett/Furla Films. Willis's "Red 2" opens later this summer with plenty of jokes about how old he is while he fires automatic weapons at bad guys. [via The Wrap] Earlier on Moviefone: 'Red 2' Poster »

Today, Ginger Baker is probably responsible for more curled toes and tightened sphincters than anyone else alive. His Q&A with Michael Hann at the Curzon Soho is a masterclass in awkwardness. Questions are shot down. Pauses are left hanging in the air. Baker haughtily surveys the scene like a bilious animatronic skeksis. By all accounts, it ranks as one of the most excruciating interviews in recent memory.
That said, there's plenty of competition. YouTube is stuffed with painful interviews featuring monosyllabic subjects, oblivious interviewees or – in some cases – both. Here are some of my favourites.

Five of the best examples of cinema characters unexpectedly bursting into song
You know how it is – you're watching a film, when suddenly, out of nowhere, the characters burst into song. Fine when it's a musical – much more surprising when it's not. Here's some of the best of these moments – but can you think of any others? Share them in the comment thread below..
500 Days of Summer
Joseph Gordon Levitt's adorable Tom finally spends the night with the beautiful and quirky Summer and launches into a cheery, dance-filled rendition of You Make My Dreams Come True by Hall and Oates. Almost as elating as losing your virginity, this happy, colourful scene is easily one of the highlights of the film. Sadly the next scene is not nearly so cheerful…

Trevor Hogg reviews the last chapter in the Hollywood Horror miniseries...
Betty in deadly danger! The great and the good of Hollywood under the control of Otto Rune! And the Rocketeer without the jet-pack he's come to depend upon! And, just when Cliff Secord thought things couldn't get any worse... enter the Dark Lord himself, Sh'oggoth! The thrilling climax... in the grand pulp tradition!
The end is near for the world as the Hollywood Horror storyline rockets toward a conclusion with the arrival of the fourth and final instalment. Cliff Secord struggles control the makeshift jet-pack crafted by Peevy while a tied and bound Betty lies in the clutches of a giant octopus as Otto Rune hypnotizes his audience into giving healthy monetary donations. In other words things are not looking good for the battered and bruised hero, and his scantily dressed captured girlfriend.

In 1988 off-duty cop John McClane took on international thief and terrorist Hans Gruber and his cold hearted gang at the fictional Nakatomi Plaza (actually the Fox Plaza in Los Angeles). With their own version of dirty dancing Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman gave an entirely new definition to the term, ‘mano-a-mano’ and audiences loved it. The formula of one guy on his own against overwhelming odds spawned four sequels and while none have been as good as the first, box office receipts for each of these still show an impressive profit. In a town where nothing breeds imitation faster than success, Hollywood took notice of this “trend” and began churning out as many “rip-offs” as they could reasonably do with out anyone calling foul.
And while none of these action movie rip offs have the charm factor of Bruce Willis and no one says, “Yippee kai yay, mother******,” they have »

The second trailer for the second "White House in peril" movie, "White House Down," just premiered over at Yahoo! Movies, and unlike the first ominous preview, this actually plays to Channing Tatum's comedic chops and star power.
The trailer introduces us to Tatum's wannabe Secret Service agent, John Cale, just a normal guy who brings his daughter along to a job interview at the White House. Though the interview doesn't go as planned, a perfectly timed terrorist attack on Washington, D.C. gives John the opportunity to go full-on John McClane. Not only will he have to save his daughter, who has been taken hostage by the invading terrorists, but also protect the prez, played by Jamie Foxx.
Take a look at the new trailer for "White House Down" after the jump!
That's a lot funnier than the doom-and-gloom teaser we got a few weeks ago, right? It's hard »

After losing its way in a shower of bullets, the Die Hard franchise is looking to Rocky for an elegant end to the story
There are probably a million reasons why Die Hard 6 should never be made. Die Hard 5 was terrible. Bruce Willis is too old. John McClane is no longer a recognisable human being. Every time anybody makes a sequel to Die Hard, you feel like your childhood is being stabbed directly in the heart. And so on.
However, it seems that no amount of logic is enough to stop Die Hard 6 from happening. According to reports, Die Hard 6 not only has a prospective title, Die Hardest, but a location, too. This time John McClane will apparently get to wisecrack and explode his way across Tokyo before – as is now traditional in the series – collapsing in an exhausted heap, oblivious to all the sustained human death »

The Flickering Myth writing staff look at the news of a possible sixth Die Hard movie....
In 1988, Bruce Willis starred in a movie that made him a bonafide blockbuster action star. The fearless cop John McClane took down a group of terrorists and the evil Hans Gruber by himself in John McTiernan's Die Hard - one of the best action movies ever made.
The film spawned a sequel, Die Hard 2: Die Harder, a couple of years later and then another sequel in 1995 entitled Die Hard with a Vengeance. As an interesting side note, Die Hard with a Vengeance was originally its own movie called Simon Says and John McClane was added at a later date to make it the third movie.
The trilogy was labelled a success and has become a firm favourite among action fans. In 2007, the news of a fourth movie, Live Free or Die Hard (a. »
Yes, fellow liberals, there are conservative Hollywood celebrities, and they don't all suck. Case in point: character actor Robert Davi, who played Agent Johnson ("No, the other one.") in 1988's Die Hard, and who has had a long career playing convincingly menacing characters. Davi appeared on Fox and Friends this week to promote his new film The Iceman, and to explain how political correctness is ruining America. »

In the first Die Hard, Bruce Willis' John McClane New York cop character was a fish out of water while visiting his wife in Los Angeles. That formula was repeated in A Good Day to Die Hard, and could play a role in Die Hard 6 if the film in its current iteration comes to pass.
Total Film is reporting that British writer Ben Trebilcook (Knockout, unused treatment of Live Free or Die Hard called Die Hardest) is currently penning a treatment for Die Hard 6 that will begin in New York City before shifting much of the film's time to Tokyo, Japan. Trebilcook likens his in-progress treatment of the film to "be the Rocky Balboa of the Die Hard franchise," which could mean it's the final curtain call for John McClane. Ironically this new treatment is also called Die Hardest.
It's important to note that at this stage, there is »
Here's a hefty rumor for your Tuesday afternoon: the upcoming sixth installment of the "Die Hard" franchise is being called "Die Hardest" — at least, for the time being.
According to Total Film, the working title for "Die Hard 6" is "Die Hardest." The site reports that Ben Trebilcook, who wrote a treatment for "Die Hard 4" as well, is penning the "Die Hard 6" script.
Interestingly enough, the "Die Hard 4" spec script Trebilcook wrote was also reportedly called "Die Hardest," so this could just be a placeholder title. The "Die Hard" franchise has gotten plenty of flak for its punny titles, so hopefully someone involved can come up with something a bit more clever than "Die Hardest."
According to the Total Film report, "Die Hard 6" will begin in New York but then will be set predominantly in Tokyo. Trebilcook told the site that his take on "Die Hard" will please fans.

It looks like Die Hard 6 is happening. And, er, it has a title as well...
Update: BadAssDigest throw some doubt on this story here.
Well, they said it'd happen. Before the critical panning of A Good Day To Die Hard, it was already pretty common knowledge that plans were afoot for at least one more Die Hard movie. And whilst in some areas of the world, Die Hard 5 struggled at the box office - not least the Us, where it didn't even break $70m - the film has gone on to make just over $300m worldwide. Die Hard 6 it is, then.
The first news of the project has popped up over at Total Film too, and that includes the title. The working name of Die Hard 6? Die Hardest. We do not make this stuff up.
The script is being written by Ben Trebilcook who »
The internet was abuzz Tuesday with rumors that there was a new installment of the “Die Hard” franchise in the works, working under the tentative title “Die Hardest.” Now, that rumor -- and with it that terrible title -- has been put to rest, with Fox flatly denying the story. It all started when TotalFilm released a report citing the hiring of British screenwriter Ben Trebilcook to pen the sixth film in the “Die Hard” series. Trebilcook had already cooked up an interesting plot point -- the story would begin in New York City before moving to Tokyo for the bulk of the movie's action -- and promised the quality would be high. “It is extremely faithful to the franchise and characters and is a natural progression. It's also a very plausible storyline,” Trebilcook told the site. Trebilcook had reportedly landed the gig when he met “A Good Day to Die Hard »

So, I am starting out with the fact that I have not seen A Good Day To Die Hard. Maybe it was a good movie, I just wasn't that enthused to see it in the theater. With that out of the way, Total Film is reporting that there is not only going to be another movie in the Die Hard series, but they already have a writer in place. Here is what they had to say about it:
There really isn't much of a synopsis out for the next McClane adventure, but the report says that the story "begins in New York, before moving to Tokyo, which will be the predominant location." Trebilcook came into contact with Larry D. Webster, consulting producer on A Good Day To Die Hard, »

With the box-office success of A Good Day To Die Hard proving that there is no limit to the audience’s excitement for seeing Bruce Willis earn a paycheck, talk is rumored to have begun on yet another sequel—a movie that, fittingly, is a rehashed version of an old idea and would have been deemed ridiculous two sequels ago. Total Film spoke with screenwriter Ben Trebilcook, who says that his spec treatment Die Hardest—which was rejected in favor of what eventually became Live Free Or Die Hard—might be back in play as a potential Die Hard 6 »
Die Hard 6 has been given a provisional working title.
The sixth instalment of the Bruce Willis action series is currently called Die Hardest, according to Total Film.
British screenwriter Ben Trebilcook is currently working on a treatment for the project.
The story of the sixth film will reportedly begin in New York, before heading to Tokyo as the main backdrop.
"It is extremely faithful to the franchise and characters and is a natural progression. It's also a very plausible storyline," Trebilcook said.
"[There's] the possibility producers might go back and find some other source material to base the next one on, »
