The newest Die Hard movie, A Good Day to Die Hard, opened yesterday, and so we’ve teamed up with 20th Century Fox to give away limited edition infographic posters for the first four movies. Each poster breaks down the body counts, explosions, plot points, and more for each film. They posters are pretty neat, and we’re giving away sets to 10 lucky readers. The posters are on high-quality paper and measure approximately 12″x16″.
Hit the jump to check out the posters, and to find out how to enter. Be sure to check out my retrospective on Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Die Hard with a Vengeance, and Live Free or Die Hard plus my review of A Good Day to Die Hard.
[With A Good Day to Die Hard set to open this Thursday, we'll be taking a look back at the first four Die Hard movies. These reviews will contain spoilers since the movies have been out for years. Click on the respective links for my look back at Die Hard and Die Hard 2.]
I like to consider Die Hard with a Vengeance the true sequel to Die Hard. It’s bigger, bolder, darker, but still retains the same sense of desperation, humor, and intensity of the first movie. Unlike Die Hard 2, the purpose of Die Hard with a Vengeance isn’t to copy the plot elements of the first film, but to take the spirit of the original and paint it on a broader canvas. Die Hard with a Vengeance takes what could have been a stolid, safe entry, and instead shakes up the formula to keep John McClane (Bruce Willis) alive and kicking, which is impressive for a guy who should have died many times over.
A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth entry in the Die Hard series, hits theaters on February 14. The well-timed 2013 release also marks the 25th anniversary of the original Die Hard, released in 1988. To mark the occasion, Fox unveiled a giant mural of Bruce Willis crawling through the vent on the studio lot, and we have a grab bag of Die Hard bits:
- A timelapse video of the mural installation.
- A neat Die Hard: With a Vengeance infographic.
- The interactive Good Day to Die Hard “Ode to Destruction” site.
All this after the jump.
