WIN: Tickets to see Die Hard at Clevedon’s Curzon cinema
PUBLISHED: 18:00 03 December 2018
Bruce Willis takes on blood-thirsty villains in the original Die Hard, and Clevedon’s Curzon is offering readers the chance to relive the Christmas film for free.
It is Christmas time in Los Angeles and there is an employee party taking place at the Nakatomi Corporation building.
But the festivities comes to a violent end when the partygoers are taken hostage by a group of terrorists headed by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman).
The group plans to steal $600million which is locked in Nakatomi’s high-tech safe.
Gruber and his henchmen, while look to be politically motivated, are in fact not and have set up the ploy to throw the authorities off their track.
Meanwhile, New York police officer John McClane (Bruce Willis) has arrived in LA to visit his estranged wife, Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) who happens to be one of the hostages.
McClane takes matters into his own hands and disregards the police on the scene and takes on the villains with only a handgun to protect himself.
Die Hard launched Willis’ career as an action star after the film grossed $140million worldwide.
The success of the film also made way for a franchise to be launched made up of four sequels, a number of video games and a comic book.
It was named one of the best action and Christmas-themed films ever made and is ranked number 20 in the Empire’s 2017 list of 100 greatest movies of all time.
Die Hard will be shown at 8pm on December 14.
The Times has teamed up with the Curzon to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to the show.
