Didn't I see commercials for another Die Hard movie this weekend?

Is this a rip-off of Transfer Of Power by Vince Flynn?

Do they have an empty elevator shaft that long at the White House?   And an underground car park for a cocky black driver to park in ?   And a roof space with lots of steaming utilities in?

How about, No?

I liked the Star Trek episode that was Die Hard on the Enterprise. They should have done one like that with DS9. Sisko running around capping Cardasians.

It's called the Seven Year Rule (warning: tvtropes. time thief).

The unwritten rule that, after a given number of years (seven is usually the default), there has been enough turnover that the same gimmicks and storylines can be recycled with impunity.

Die Hard was 24 years ago. Most of the teenagers who will flock to see this weren't even born when Die Hard came out.

Yeah but through the entire 1990s there were "Die Hard on a _____" movies.

So here's the plan, we'll make it just like Die Hard Under Siege but instead of a High Rise battleship, it takes place in the White House.

Fixed it for subby.

Didn't they do this on one of the weaker seasons of 24?

They don't remember those either. They don't even remember the last Die Hard movie. They think Bruce Willis is some weird old bald dude who got cuckolded by Ashton Kutcher.

I dunno - Gerard Butler's character looks too much like a lone gun, a loose cannon who uses cowboy tactics and there's just no place on the President's detail for people like that.

But dammit it also looks like he gets results.

Yeah but I just meant that in the '90s they didn't follow your 7 year premise rule. I remember every commercial for those movies with the voiceover literally saying, "Joe Dickhead from WSHILL says, 'It's Die Hard on the monorail at Disney!" or whatever.

Is it me or does this look really stupid. I just can't suspend that much disbelief.

I'll go watch Hackers instead ...now that's a movie I can see happening.

Pretty much, Man of Steel and Pacific Rim are two movies coming out this year that are more realistic than this movie.
 
2013-01-23 12:27:42 PM  
What, that looked really fake. Or should I say cheap.

I don't know what it is with modern movies, but come on guys, use less computer generated crap or make it look more real.
 
2013-01-23 12:33:45 PM  
That was shiatTASTICALLY badly done.

The guns don't retract.
The guns don't aim forward.
The guns fire a fark-ton faster.
The 134 doesn't make the same sounds as the 214.
Spooky 134s have a flash faring.
Spooky would use the Bofors on an armored building.
There are sixteen Stingers and two Sea Sparrow launchers on top teh hauz. Nobody'd use a crap 5.56 on Spooky.
 
2013-01-23 12:44:58 PM  
There's actually another movie just like this slated to come out this year as well. I worked on it here in DC (worked in the 2nd unit camera department)
White House Down (new window)

A 19 year old Jolie flashing her boob I can see happening. Several times.

Elvis_Bogart: Is this a rip-off of Transfer Of Power by Vince Flynn?


Exactly what I was thinking the second I saw the title screen. From what I remember when CBS Films picked up the rights to his books, the first flick they were going to make was Memorial Day. Then he wrote American Assassin and they figured the could start from the top of the story that way. Still no Mitch Rapp signed to play the part yet, but apparently Bruce Willis is signed on to play Stan Hurley, so the Die Hard revolution comes back full swing in that one.
 
2013-01-23 02:14:44 PM  
Wow I have absolutely zero interest in seeing that.

That was like the entire series when he wasn't whining about his wife/after they let Avery shave his head.

Kryllith: So here's the plan, we'll make it just like Die Hard Under Siege Under Siege but instead of a High Rise battleship train, it takes place in the White House. And it won't be watchable no matter how stoned and/or drunk you are.


Fixed it for everyone

Die Hard On would be a great name for a porn parody.

Man you read my mind. Mitch Rapp kicks ass!

Hollywood is not in bed with CIA.

This is Hollywood, so it's more like an agency orgy. The NSA stands watch while every decision-maker in Washington DC gangbangs Hollywood. Of course, it's not precisely a swingers event since Hollywood is being paid as the whore-entertainer in all of this.

I left out all the narcotics involved.

My guess, based on what we've seen come out of Hollywood lately, is that Hollywood's ass gave-out, and that's why everyone and everything involved is covered in shiat.

Now, either the party is over, or it's just getting started...

As gueedoguy ponted out above, That's the closer rip off. I'm curious as to how much of Flynn's books they'll actually add to the movie.

I'm re-reading American Assassin even as we speak.

I can't make my sense of disbelief turn off enough to make this movie enjoyable.

From the trailer, I can see that they're able to fly a PROPELLER-DRIVEN aircraft far enough into DC airspace to fire on the farking White House. wat

From the trailer, I can see that they're able to smuggle RPGs onto 1600 Pennsylvania without being caught. wat

From the trailer, SOMEHOW, the terrorists/bad guys have managed to either hotwire the nuclear launch system and set it to timed launch(WAAAT), or convinced the President to give up the codes wat wat waaat

I'm sorry, but no. Not just no, but farking no. I'm not even remotely educated in terms of national security when it comes to the President, the WH or the nation's capitol, but even 'I', uneducated fark that I am, KNOW THAT THE LAUNCH CODES ARE AUTOMATICALLY CHANGED in case of some breach in the President's security.

Lastly, in the worst case scenario that the President is captured, and the Vice-President is killed, then the Speaker becomes President and the bad guys lose automatically.

The premise is retarded, the execution looks retarded and the hero looks like a retard. I won't even bother to steal this movie when it comes out on DVD.

It's basically Die Hard + Robocop 2.

OK, I might enjoy this.

Hilaribad. Awfultastic. These are just a few of the adjectives I would use to describe what looks like a giant mess on the big screen.

This seems silly! They should just move the president to a plane! Nothing like this could ever happen on Air Force One
