Make fists with your toes… the big 3-0 is approaching for one of the manliest movies of all time. Although not yet, Die Hard is not technically 30 until July.
But it’s good to see Fox are treating it properly and acknowledging the occasion. They are going to finally release the movie on UHD and a further collector’s set on Blu-Ray.
Bruce Willis is John McClane in the film that launched the billion-dollar action franchise, DIE HARD. McClane, a New York City cop, flies to L.A. on Christmas Eve to visit his wife at a party in her company’s lavish high-rise. Plans change once a group of terrorists, led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), seize the building and take everyone hostage, McClane slips away and becomes the only chance anyone has in this beginning-to-end heart-stopping action thriller.
Fans can also purchase the complete DIE HARD COLLECTION limited edition Blu-ray™ Steelbook, available only at Zavvi on 14 May. The box set will include all five films in the franchise!
