NBC Releases New Die Hard-Inspired Brooklyn Nine-nine All Action Trailer!

NBC has released a brand new teaser for Brooklyn Nine-Nine's upcoming season, and it brilliantly pays to tribute to Jake Peralta's (Andy Samberg) love of Die Hard.

Adorned in a familiar white tank top on the roof of a very Nakatomi Plaza-ish building, Jake gives us his inner John McClane as the squad rappels down the side of the skyscraper with a helicopter circling the rooftop. I don't know about you, but this only makes me more excited for the new season! Watch the trailer below and let us know if you’re looking forward to the continuing adventures of Brooklyn's finest!

Yippee Ki-Yay, Nine-Nine Fans - These Die Hard Trailers For Season 6 Are Simply Magnificent

If you weren't already excited about the season six premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, these trailers will definitely do the trick. The NBC comedy, which originally aired on Fox, will return to the small screen on Jan. 10 courtesy of NBC, and the show has finally released a few trailers to get their fans excited. In them, Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) finally gets to live out his Die Hard fantasy as the cast reenacts the famous rooftop escape scene from the 1988 Christmas-action flick.

There's lots of dramatic phrasing, repelling off buildings, and a leap off a rooftop mid-explosion that would definitely not work in real life, so we don't recommend trying it at home. While the fantasy is the same in each video, they end on a different joke gag so both are definitely worth the watch. Check them out ahead and get ready for another season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in the new year!

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Jake Goes Full John McClane-‘Die Hard’ in First NBC Trailer (Video)

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Jake Goes Full John McClane-‘Die Hard’ in First NBC Trailer (Video)
What the hell is Andy Samberg doing? “Something magnificent, that’s what.”

In the first NBC trailer for Season 6 of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” Jake Peralta (Samberg) is living out his life-long dream of becoming an action hero. And (in his mind) he’s even more amazing than John McClane in “Die Hard.”

The one-minute, 45-second promo for the former Fox comedy’s first year on its new network sees the world’s biggest “Die Hard” fan coming to the Nine-Nine’s rescue, by sending Terry (Terry Crews), Amy (Melissa Fumero) and Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz) repelling off the roof of a building that’s about to explode, as Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) and Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) look on in amazement.

Move over, John McClane. Jake Peralta is in the house.  It appears that, in a way, Jake (Andy Samberg) is making all his wildest dreams come true in season six of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which makes its NBC debut in January. The latest trailers let the Die Hard-loving detective do all the things a good action star is always doing, like knowing exactly what to do to get off the top of a high rise building, and having just the rope to do it with, but only having enough for everyone else on the roof, so he he has to hitch a ride by leaping onto a passing helicopter.  Three separate trailers with different endings debut today, and you can watch two of them below before the third one debuts tonight during Sunday...

“TCM’S Christmas In The Movies” by Jeremy Arnold (Turner Classic Movies/Running Press)

  • CinemaRetro
“Mistletoe And Movies”

By Raymond Benson

Another handsome, beautifully-illustrated, and affordable entry in Turner Classic Movies’ series of books on film history, genres, and trivia, comes just in time for the holidays. Christmas in the Movies—30 Classics to Celebrate the Season offers a selection of excellent choices in chronological order. Author Arnold, a film historian and TCM commentator, provides enough background, offscreen anecdotes, and justification for his picks to satisfy the most critical movie buff.

Christmas in the Movies manages to tick all the obvious suspects, but Arnold also throws a spotlight on some lesser-known gems such as Remember the Night (1940), with a screenplay by Preston Sturges—although I’d haggle that the Sturges’-helmed piece, Christmas in July (also 1940) might be a better option. Other worthy entries include The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942), 3 Godfathers, The Lion in Winter (1968—Christmas in medieval England with Henry II and Eleanor!

UK box office preview: 'Sorry To Bother You', 'Old Man And The Gun' headline quiet week

UK box office preview: 'Sorry To Bother You', 'Old Man And The Gun' headline quiet week
White Boy Rick also among new openers.

It is a weekend of scant new releases at the UK box office, with holdovers including Ralph Breaks The Internet and Creed II likely to dominate the chart.

Universal’s Sorry To Bother You is a new opener this weekend. The film, a satire on race and greed, premiered at Sundance this year to strong write-ups. Writer-director Boots Riley, making his feature debut, is a bigger name in the Us (where the film grossed $17.5m) than the UK, which could temper its box office prospects.

The 30th Anniversary of the Ultimate Christmas Film: Die Hard

Tom Jolliffe celebrates Die Hard on its 30th anniversary…

When a film hits a significant anniversary, say 30 years old, there are two things that happen. In one, for those who were but wee blighters when they first saw the film, it will make you feel old. I first saw Die Hard on video, a couple of years after its release. About 28 years ago, when I was…oh lord…really? Man, I’m feeling old. Secondly though, when a film remains as revered as Die Hard, some 30 years on, you fully appreciate just how well crafted and impeccable the film is. It’s possibly The definitive American action film. For the record too, it’s a Christmas film. The working class, every man hero battles the consumerist terrorists to reunite with his family for a season of goodwill and festivities. It’s also set at Christmas time. There’s tinsel, trees
