Fans of the film have beenthat Die Hard is not just a beloved action film, but a classic Christmas movie. Die Hard star Bruce Willis, however, has publicly said he doesn't believe the movie counts as a festive film.
"Die Hard is not a Christmas movie; it's a goddamn Bruce Willis movie," Willis said.
But the studio behind Die Hard has quite a different perspective. On Tuesday, 20th Century Fox posted a new movie trailer of Die Hard that was recut to make the film look like a happy Christmas classic.
The trailer reimagines Hans Gruber (Rickman) as merely an annoying party crasher who causes trouble for New York policeman John McClane (Willis), who flew to Los Angeles to smooth over tensions in his marriage to wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) at her company shindig.
At the end of the trailer, Fox proclaims Die Hard the "greatest Christmas story ever told." Yippie ki-yay, holiday revelers!
