One of the most iconic movie cops of all time, John McClane is at it again in the latest of the Die Hard franchise in “A Good Day to Die Hard”. For the first time in a Die Hard movie, McClane finds himself on foreign soil after traveling to Moscow to help who he thought was his wayward son Jack. With the Russian underworld in pursuit, and battling a countdown to war, McClane and his son team up to battle the underworld. The new film “A Good Day to Die Hard” will be in cinemas worldwide on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2013. Costarring with Bruce Willis are several Mercedes-Benz models, the G-Class, the Unimog, the Sprinter and the Zetros, the C-Class, Vito, E-Class Saloon as well as the new G 63 AMG, a GL-Class and a Maybach 57. Mercedes-Benz will also be on hand at the premiere screenings in London and Berlin.

Also staring in “A Good Day to Die Hard” is Bruce Willis, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jai Courtney, Patrick Stewart, Sebastian Koch and Anne Vyalitsyna.

“We are very pleased that we were able to support the new film in the exciting “Die Hard” series with a large number of our vehicles. From the C-Class to the Zetros, the Mercedes-Benz model fleet could not be better suited to this action film with its spectacular stunts in the streets of Moscow. An exciting film with many emotionally appealing vehicles,” says Anders Sundt Jensen, Head of Brand Communication Mercedes-Benz Cars. “Mercedes-Benz vehicles stand for safety, performance and distinctive design. And they are at home in all major European cities. This suits them perfectly and completely authentically to the screenplay. For example, the G-Class, Sprinter, Unimog and Zetros are the ideal “hero cars” for the hard-as-nails requirements of John and Jack McClane”, continues Jensen.
