'Die Hard' Franchise Returns to R Rating

January 14, 2013


Likely the most consistent complain with 2007's Live Free or Die Hard was that it marked the franchise's orchestrated drop from an R to a PG-13 rating, which meant the post-production editing-out of profanity and the computer-generated addition of pistols, smoke, Justin Long, and other elements to cover Bruce Willis's occasionally-exposed testicles. That the film still managed to make over $380 million despite these cuts led some to worry the next sequel may follow in this toned down path, but it seems those fears were unfounded: ComingSoon has learned the upcoming A Good Day To Die Hard will be come to theaters this February with an R rating. Yippee-ki-yay, motherfathers.
