To celebrate the holiday season, Disney has announced it will be re-releasing the classic action movie, “Die Hard” in cinemas across the United States for just one day on December 8th 2023.

Facing Christmas 3,000 miles from his estranged wife and two children, New York policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) flies to Los Angeles bearing presents and hoping to patch up his marriage. Stylish and cool Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) is in Los Angeles as well for the holiday season, but he’s not there to give out presents. He’s there to take more than $600 million in negotiable bearer bonds from the multinational Nakatomi Corporation, where McClane’s wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) is an executive. When the takeover becomes hostile, it’s up to John McClane to take on the terrorists with all the grit and determination he can muster–but not without a sense of humour.

Tickets are available to purchase now from Fandango.  And if you prefer to stay home, wrapped in a blanket on your couch, you can also stream “Die Hard” now on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ in most other countries.

“Die Hard”, which is the first instalment in the action franchise, was originally released in 1988 and was a huge box office success at the time, grossing over $140 million worldwide against a $57 million budget. 

The film is widely regarded as one of the greatest action films of all time, cementing its place in cinematic history and it also has become a Christmas movie staple, with Disney+ even launching a promotional campaign in the UK arguing why the film is a Christmas film.
