“John fled from Karl and Hans but alas! He had to run barefoot over sharp, broken glass.” Celebrate a great holiday classic with Doogie Horner and J.J. Harrison’s illustrated version of Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman’s 1988 action flick, done up in a sort of Golden Books style.
Awesome Die Hard
Yipee-Ki-Yay! It’s a board game inspired by the 1988 Bruce Willis action classic Die Hard. Players assume the roles of thieves or John McClane as they face off on three floors of Nakatomi Plaza. The bad guys work together to hack the vault and take down their vigilante stalker, while a solo McClane tries to get to Hans Gruber.
We already have Die Hard on our annual Christmas viewing list, but if you don’t, this official trailer that 20th Century Fox just dropped should convince you that it belongs there, right alongside A Christmas Story, Home Alone, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Elf.
(PG-13: Language) Eclectic Method’s latest remix reminds us that Die Hard is truly required viewing each holiday season, right there alongside A Christmas Story, another movie in which one of the protagonist’s main objectives is acquiring firearms despite the odds.
Take of your shoes, make fists with your toes, and curl up with a nice book with this hilarious official Die Hard coloring book. It’s got 80 pages of Nakatomi tower goodness for your to color in, along with classic scenes and quotes from everyone’s favorite Christmas flick.
The Onion film critic Peter K. Rosenthal looks back at one of our all-time favorite Christmas movies, and contemplates what wonders the employees of the Nakatomi Corporation missed out on when their office Christmas party was rudely interrupted by an exceptional thief.
