Happy Valentine's Day from Chocolate Bruce Willis and Japanese John McClane

Never to be outdone in the technology of human facsimile--be that a hyper-realistic android or a meltable simulacrum of Bruce Willis--already Japan has managed to top our sculpted John McCLAY with their own, superior Willis fabrication. Meet Chocolate John McClane, reluctant edible hero and best friend of Japanese '80s John McClane (who looks about equally as much like Bruce Willis). Together, along with Japanese Russian Motorcycle Lady, they livened up a recent Japanese press conference for A Good Day to Die Hard, and made every other press conference that did not involve a monochrome effigy look stupid.

    Explosions! Quips! Cars! Bruce Willis's smooth, damp, grimacing head! That one shot where some babe is unzipping her catsuit! Just a little pretty much all of what you can expect from these new 30-second spots for A Good Day To Die Hard.... / Continue →

    The creation of another Die Hard film is not a joke! (Even though it is sort of a joke.) Fox is so serious about doing this that they've officially hired Noam Murro--a commercial director whose only film credit is the dramedy Smart People--to direct the fifth film in the series... / Continue →
