Fox's Official Response To Complaints About Their Cutting A Good Day To Die Hard

A couple of Little Bleeders got in touch to share e-mails they have received from Fox, here in the UK. Both had written to the studio to protest their decision to release A Good Day To Die Hard in a 12A certificate version, cut down from the R-rated alternative on release in the US. The BBFC have made it clear that this version would have been rated 15 here in the UK.

Here’s what their e-mails said:

Everyone at Fox is excited that John McClane is back on the big screen in the latest instalment of the Die Hard franchise, this time with his son and on foreign soil in Russia.

We can confirm that working with the BBFC some minor cuts were made in order to achieve a 12A certificate.

We believe the movie will delight the Die Hard fans and the 12A certificate, similar to Dark Knight Rises and Skyfall, will allow both adults and teenagers to enjoy the latest movie in the franchise.

Kind Regards

Will this decision impact on the film’s box office? That would really be the only way to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
