Next Die Hard Pleases Fans With An R Rating

I don’t see an MPAA classification as an indicator of quality in any way, but fans of the Die Hard series have been pining for an R-rated instalment and, come February 14th, they’ll get their wish.

Quite what A Good Day To Die Hard has done to earn this badge isn’t yet known, but I dare say we’ll find out midweek when the next set of MPPA ratings are published.

It could be a bit of swearing, it could be violent acts, it could even be some sort of nudity. Which of those, exactly, is it that the fans were baying for? I’m a bit confused as to what they actually want from this R rating.

So… is there anybody out there who can honestly say this news has made the slightest bit of difference to their anticipation levels?

Note that Good Day director John Moore successfully negotiated to have his film Max Payne bumped down from an R to a PG-13. The difference was “a few frames.”

Maybe he kept them in the bin and spliced them into Good Day. Ahem.

The UK certification of A Good Day to Die Hard is yet to be set, but I’m expecting a 15.
