Studio Line: 20th Century Fox

Die Hard: Bruce Willis stars as a lone cop locked in a desperate battle against terrorists who have taken over a Los Angeles high-rise in the blockbuster action thriller that started it all!

Die Hard 2: Bruce Willis is back as John McClane, the hard-boiled, soft-hearted cop with the unhealthy habit of spending the holidays battling battalions of ruthless terrorists. This stunning action-packed sequel is a heart-stopping, jet-propelled journey through excitement and terror.

Die Hard With A Vengeance: Detective John McClane thought he'd seen it all. He's safe at home in New York, the last place he expected to find his most unusual foe yet. But a genius named Simon is about to engage McClane and the city in a deadly game. McClane's seen his share of bad days, but this time Simon says McClane is about to have a really bad day.
