On February 13th, see all five Die Hard movies on the big screen!

For me, the DIE HARD series ended with the third film. LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD was the equivalent of Liam Neeson in UNKNOWN versus TAKEN. Almost the same, but not quite. Maybe it was the lack of hair or the overuse of CGI, but something was lacking in the fourth film. A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD does look like it has potential, but I will reserve judgement until I see it.

With that in mind, Fox had the right idea and took a cue from TWILIGHT and THE LORD OF THE RINGS films in showing the prior series entries on the big screen prior to the premiere of the new movie. So, on February 13th, we will have a one day chance to see DIE HARD, DIE HARD 2: DIE HARDER, DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE, and LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD on the big screen leading up to the premiere of A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD. How can you go wrong with that?

Look, they even made a cool promotional trailer for it!

Plot: When secret CIA operative Jack McClane gets into trouble in Moscow, Russia, John has to travel to foreign soil to help his son out of prison. However, when there, terrorists use the circumstances behind Jack's arrest to further their agenda of a nuclear weapons heist, and the father-son duo learn that, despite their differences, they must work together to stop them.

This could work one of two ways. Either seeing the prior films will let people down when they see nothing compares to the classic trilogy, or it will get everyone so pumped up, the new movie rides on their coattails.

Either way, A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD opens everywhere on February 14, 2013.

UPDATE: The DIE HARD marathon will be screening at AMC Theaters. Click here to buy tickets.

For me there is the Die Hard trilogy and a new saga: JOHN MCCLANE SUPERHERO. Once he was a brave cop, now he is 007. But I can see another trilogy with this version of McClane.

I work at an AMC, and typically you get two different kinds of marathons. The first is placed for time of the week. We screened all three extended edition Lord of the Rings movies almost a week before The Hobbit came out so that it would fall on a Saturday and people could go. However, in cases like the most recent Twilight (and the accompanying marathon) as well as the upcoming Die Hard series, it is placed the day before the film is released (which is typically a Thursday, but in this case

However, in cases like the most recent Twilight (and the accompanying marathon) as well as the upcoming Die Hard series, it is placed the day before the film is released (which is typically a Thursday, but in this case falls on Wednesday) to gear people up so they can transition from the last film in the marathon to a midnight showing of the new film. It doesn't necessarily work out (I think the Die Hard series will be sparsely attended) but that's why they do it.

That's cool, and I'd LOVE to go, but how many people can actually take the time on a wednesday in February to go to a theater all day and watch a marathon? It's really a shame this can't be done at a better time, though I understand this is supposed to lead up to the premiere.

Nice!

I really wish though they could have these marathons during a time when those of us who have a life and work could go see them.

WHAT THEATERS?!?!

Seriously...this is like the 3rd time JoBlo has talked about this marathon but no details as to where or what theater chains are showing it. Does anyone have the answer to this most important question??

You'd have to look at the theatres, nothing official is posted yet.

As far as I know only AMC and AMC affiliated theaters do these marathons, but I could be wrong. At least, the only chain I've seen in the Bay Area that does these is AMC.
