What better way to spend Valentines Day than watching Bruce Willis don his white vest and shoot people with guns! Well, Die Hard fans can do exactly that this year, when A Good Day to Die Hard hits our cinema screens.
In the meantime, you can check out the celebrations around the 25 years of Die Hard movies, as across the pond, Twentieth Century Fox marked the silver anniversary  with a ceremony on the historic studio backlot, during which a massive mural depicting the film’s iconic hero John McClane was unveiled in front of Stage 8.
Atmosphere
Bruce Willis, who has essayed McClane in all five Die Hard pictures, including the latest installment, A Good Day to Die Hard, attended the ceremony, along with his co-star Jai Courtney, who portrays McClane’s son Jack in the new film, and its director, John Moore.The festivities included a reception on the 21st floor of the Fox Plaza, which Die Hard fans will recognize as “Nakatomi Plaza” – ground zero for the non-stop action of the landmark original film.Bruce Willis said:  “One of the most exciting things about playing McClane is that he’s definitely not a superhero. He has no special powers or Bruce Willisabilities. He’s a regular guy to whom anybody can relate.  While we’re always pushing the envelope to create great action sequences, I think it is McClane’s relatability and sense of humor that really draws in people.”

20th Century Fox Film chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos added:  “Twenty-five years ago, Die Hard, John McClane, and Bruce Willis thrilled audiences around the world and set a new template for action and adventure. Now, on the eve of the release of A Good Day to Die Hard, we were delighted to celebrate and honor this enduring part of our studio’s legendary history with this mural unveiling.”

Bruce Willis, Jim GianopulosWhen DIE HARD exploded into theaters during the summer of 1988, it launched a new cinematic hero, John McClane, and changed the paradigm of action movies. McClane is identifiable and relatable – an ordinary man forced by circumstances to attempt extraordinary tasks.  That is what separates him from the comic book heroes of most action movies, and has made McClane one of the most endearing characters in film history – Thank goodness!
