Die Hard released on 4K UHD to celebrate the action film’s 30th anniversary


Yippee Ki Yay!! Classic action movie Die Hard is celebrating its 30th anniversary and to mark the occasion Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is releasing an all-new 4K Ultra HD remaster of the film.

Available from tomorrow, Die Hard tells the story of New York City cop John McLane (Bruce Willis) who is in LA on Christmas Eve for his estranged wife’s company Christmas party when their new high-rise is overtaken by terrorists.

The terrorists are led by Hans Gruber – played meticulously by Alan Rickman – but McLane, who manages to escape to the empty and unfinished floors of the building, becomes the hostages’ best and only chance of getting out alive.

The Nakatomi Plaza building in the film is actually Fox Plaza – Twentieth Century Fox’s global headquarters which, at the time, had just been completed.

It was also a breakout film for Bruce Willis and established the actor as a bona fide action star.

The Die Hard 4K Ultra HD includes 30th anniversary bonus features including a commentary by director John McTiernan and production designer Jackson DeGovia.

There is also scene specific commentary by special effects supervisor Richard Edlund as well as a featurette, an interactive stills gallery and the full-length screenplay.

There will also be a limited edition 4K Ultra HD Die Hard steel book available exclusively at JB Hi-Fi.

Also available is the Die Hard 5-film box set on Blu-ray and DVD which includes:

– Die Hard (1988)

– Die Hard 2 (1990)

– Die Hard: With A Vengeance (1995)

– Live Free or Die Hard (2007)
