Every day, find the programming of movies and series to watch on TV. Tonight: John McClane meets new technology, the return of “Clem” for its 12th season, and a detective miniseries from England.
THE MOVIE OF THE DAY
Started in 1988 with Piège de cristal, the saga die hard it continues with 58 Minutes to Live in 1990, then A Day in Hell in 1995. Despite its success, a fourth episode took 12 years to complete. After John McTiernan and Renny Harlin, it’s up to Len Wiseman (Underworld 1 and 2) to take the reins of the franchise. According to Bruce Willis, the director wants to make an “old-fashioned” action movie, that is, going back to basics.
AND Die Hard 4 – Back to Hell Indeed, wanting to stay true to tradition through its grumpy character hero and scathing retorts, the film departs from the initial trilogy with its high-tech edge, lack of charismatic supporting cast, or PG-13 rating (while the previous three games were rated R).
That doesn’t stop it from being a hit in theaters, with $388 million in worldwide billing. With its 2 million viewers in France, die hard 4 however, it does less than its predecessor, which accumulated 3. At AlloCiné, this component is one of the worst rated in the saga, with an average rating from viewers of 3.6 out of 5.
