Where to stream Die Hard

Yippee-ki-yay! If you’re a fan of ’80s action movies, then the phrase will instantly remind you of Die Hard. The 1988 action thriller stars Bruce Willis as John McClane, an NYPD cop who finds himself in the middle of a terrorist scheme at Nakatomi Plaza. While visiting his wife at a Christmas party, McClane meets Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), the highly-intelligent leader of the terrorists. It’s a cat-and-mouse game between McClane and Gruber as the hardened cop tries to thwart the terrorist’s plans and save his wife.

Predominantly known for television roles until this point, Willis catapulted into superstardom from the success of Die Hard. The film spawned four sequels and made Willis one of the most bankable action stars for the next 15 years. Though we won’t delve into the “is Die Hard a Christmas movie” debate (it is), we will tell you where to watch this action thriller during the holiday season.
