A Good Day to Die Hard Gets R-Rated
Collider reports through an undisclosed source that the fifth installment of the Die Hard franchise, called A Good Day to Die Hard, will be Rated-R and not PG-13 as was its direct predecessor. Slashfilm has a similar report and also has unknown sources telling that the film will probably be "R".
The official announcement or denial by FOX has yet to happen but in general, Collider or Slashfilm are not known for spreading bad rumors without expressing that they are not yet facts. If the rating turns out to be true, we'll most likely avoid edited blood effects, bad editing in order to hide violence and will get the famous "Yipee-ki-yay, motherfucker!" that doesn't have to be interrupted because a PG-13 doesn't permit the MF-term.
Considering the financial success of the PG-13-rated Live Free or Die Hard in 2007, it is quite a surprise that they return back to the "R". However, this time the film doesn't have to compete with all the summer blockbusters since it already comes out in February. Here it has almost no real competition for a month and can pick up every Dollar of the male fans that don't really have an alternative at the time.
Furthermore, one shouldn't underestimate the peer pressure from Schwarzenegger's The Last Stand and Stallone's Bullet to the Head that both have an "R" and start shortly before Die Hard 5.
A Good Day to Die Hard starts worldwide on February 14th, 2013.
