Avid Die Hard fans will know this as ‘Die Hard Five’. Interestingly, this is the first script to be specifically written for the Die Hard franchise – previously other scripts had been repurposed to put McClane in the lead role. No surprise then that McClane (Willis) reprises his lead role here.

A Good Day to Die Hard is the first in the series to be set outside the United States, with McClane finding himself in Russia trying to get his wayward son Jack (Courtney) back on track. What he doesn’t know is that Jack is actually a highly-trained CIA secret agent who is working to prevent a nuclear–weapons robbery. Soon the McClanes are called upon to do what they do best – destroy every evil man, evil vehicle and evil building standing between them and… well, whatever it is they feel like getting to.

So, what else to tell you… it’s a Die Hard movie. It’s non-stop action thriller. It’s Bruce Willis blowing stuff up. And for the first time he has a really capable sidekick, allowing for twice as much destruction. Come along for the ride, we’ll have a box by the front desk where you can safely stow your brain for a couple of hours.

Yippee Ki-Yay Mother Russia!

Go back to where it all began with our special 25th anniversary screening of the original Die Hard following John McClane’s latest adventure in A Good Day to Die Hard.

In this landmark action flick, a off-duty New York cop (Bruce Willis) finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time when a group of highly organised terrorists led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) take over the office building where McClane’s estranged wife works.
