Opening in theaters on Valentine's Day, Thursday, February 14th is A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth installment of the extremely popular Die Hard franchise. The film was directed by John Moore (Max Payne), and once again stars Bruce Willis (The Expendables 2) as underdog hero John McClane, a role he created almost twenty-five years ago. In addition to Willis, the movie also features Jai Courtney (Jack Reacher) as his outcast son Jack McClane, as well as Sebastian Koch (Unknown), Yuliya Snigir (Obitaemyy ostrov), Radivoje Bukvic (Taken), Cole Hauser (2 Fast 2 Furious), Amaury Nolasco (The Rum Diary), and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Smashed) reprising her role as Lucy McClane.  

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with Jai Courtney to talk about his work on A Good Day to Die Hard. The talented young actor discussed the new film, joining the beloved franchise, the McClane's difficult father and son relationship, why part of his character's backstory was cut from the movie, if it was ever considered that Jack might say the famous Die Hard catchphrase in this installment instead of John, Willis' confirmation to Courtney that there will be a Die Hard 6, and the possibility of John and the McClane children having to say their mom (Bonnie Bedelia) in the next film.
