It’s been 25 years since the first ‘Die Hard’ film hit theatres across the world and introduced Bruce Willis’ immensely popular character — and now, the fifth installment of the franchise is set to pull in film-buffs.
‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ releases on February 22. To celebrate the silver jubilee of the franchise, 20th Century Fox recently honoured Bruce Willis with a special mural of his character in the flick, John McClane.
“This is really nice. I’m so honoured. Thank you so much. Twenty-five years — I didn’t really notice the passage of time,” says Bruce, adding, “At the time, I didn’t know what this was. And the idea of sequels hadn’t happened yet. I probably should have been paying more attention.”
Bruce Willis reprises his iconic role as police detective John McClane in ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’, set against the backdrop of deadly corruption and political vendetta in Russia.
McClane arrives in Moscow to track down his estranged son, Jack (played by Jai Courtney), and is stunned to discover he’s working undercover to protect a government whistleblower, Komarov. With their own necks on the line, the McClanes are forced to overcome their differences in order to get Komarov to safety and thwart a potentially disastrous crime in the most desolate place on Earth — Chernobyl.
