A Full Day to Die Hard

Believe it or not, 2013 marks twenty-five years since John McClane first quipped and clobbered his way through hordes of terrorists in Die Hard. Next month, Twentieth Century Fox celebrates McClane's silver screen silver anniversary with A Good Day to Die Hard, teaming him with grown-up son John Jr. on a madcap dash through Russia. We've sure come a long way from one man in a wife-beater holding off terrorists in a high-rise, but there's no doubting McClane's resilience as one of the most indelible action heroes of all time, and much of the credit for that rests on the shoulders of series star Bruce Willis.

In anticipation of A Good Day's Valentine's Day debut, Fox is teaming with select theaters across the country for a day-long marathon of all four extant Die Hard flicks one day early, on February 13, all culminating in a 10 PM debut for movie five. I'd love to be able to re-watch the series on the big screen (I love 'em all unabashedly), but sadly I have a feeling family and job commitments make this a non-starter for me. If you're able to spare the time, though, and especially if you've never seen any of 'em, you should definitely make time for this. No idea which theaters will be doing the daylong Die Hard thing as of yet, but keep checking your local theaters' websites for details as the date gets closer.
