Official Die Hard Holiday Trailer Declares It the Greatest Christmas Story Ever Told
For years now, the debate has raged on whether or not Die Hard is a bonafide Christmas movie.

Die Hard The Greatest Christmas Movie

Fom 20th Century Fox, Die Hard is getting the Ultimate Christmas Makeover with All-New Festive Trailer for the Holiday Season.

‘Twas the night before Christmas, at Nakatomi Plaza,

The office party was festive, but soon interrupted by drama.

Hans Gruber and his men, had forced their way in,

And taken everyone hostage, trapping them within.

But how could they know, there was a cop up above,

John McClane had arrived, to win back his wife’s love.

He would take them all out, winning everyone’s praise,

Welcoming Christmas Day, with his favorite catchphrase.

Yippee Ki Yay!

Bruce Willis is John McClane in the film that launched the billion-dollar action franchise, Die Hard. McClane, a New York City cop, flies to L.A. on Christmas Eve to visit his wife at a party in her company’s lavish high-rise. Plans change once a group of terrorists, led by Hans Gruber

Fox Recuts 'Die Hard' Trailer to Argue It's "Greatest Christmas Story Ever Told"

Twentieth Century Fox has chosen sides.

On Tuesday, the studio released a new cut of the Die Hard trailer, arguing that not only is it a Christmas movie, it is "the greatest Christmas story ever told."

The new trailer is almost 90 seconds in length and is cut to be more of a comedy — like Home Alone — than a classic action flick. The campy voiceover and upbeat music help push the argument that the 1988 film is indeed a Christmas romp.

That debate has (jokingly) raged on for years. Star Bruce Willis dealt a massive ...

Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 12 Review: Awol

On Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 12, we say goodbye to Avery as he makes his way to Afghanistan.

I know I said I wanted him out of Murphy's house, but I really didn't mean for him to flee to a war-torn country.

I should've seen it coming, and some of you probably did, but it hit me by surprise to see him packing.

After the scene with him and Murphy in the bedroom, I thought back on the episode, and everything was leading to this point.

Avery was obsessed with the Afghanistan story. He was full of ideas about the source. He was also bored and looking for the next chapter in his life.

I'm from gator territory. I think gator, I speak gator. I even lost my Grandma to a gator.

Official Glass Runtime Loses Over an Hour of First Cut Footage
It turns out M. Night Shyamalan had no shortage of ideas when it came to crafting Glass, the upcoming sequel to Unbreakable and Split. With the movie set to arrive in theaters next month, the director has started to make the press rounds in order to promote the highly-anticipated conclusion to his unconventional superhero trilogy. During a recent interview, Shyamalan revealed that his original cut was over three hours long. Here's what he had to say about it.

"The script was really long, it was almost 150 pages and the first cut of the movie was 3 hours and 20 minutes, it was really long. Then it started tightening [and] tightening until we got to the 2.08 that you can see."

It's not uncommon for first cuts to be much longer than what ultimately makes it to screen. As for what was cut out? According to M. Night Shyamalan, much of it had to do

Glass was originally over three hours long according to M. Night Shyamalan

M. Night Shyamalan, the director of Glass, has revealed that the film’s first cut was more than three hours long.

A lot happens between a director shooting a film and the product arriving in cinemas, and this usually includes a lot of what was filmed lying on the cutting room floor, paving the way on many occasions for fascinating director’s cuts.

According to director M. Night Shyamalan, his latest film Glass – a sequel to Unbreakable and Split – has left plenty in the editing room too, telling Digital Spy that the film was once more than three hours long:

“The script was really long, it was almost 150 pages and the first cut of the movie was three hours and 20 minutes, it was really long. Then it started tightening [and] tightening until we got to the 2.08 that you can see.”

As Shyamalan notes, the film is now at a tidy 2hrs 8mins in length,

A Hostless Oscars? The Last Time the Academy Tried That, Things Got Ugly

A Hostless Oscars? The Last Time the Academy Tried That, Things Got Ugly
As the Academy goes into late December without a host to replace Kevin Hart at the helm of the 2019 Oscars show, talk has turned to the idea of having a show without a host. It has been done a few times in the past, both in shows in the late ’60s and early ’70s and then again as recently as 1989.

But be careful what you wish for, all you who are proposing a hostless Oscars.

After all, the last Academy Awards show that didn’t have a host, the 61st Oscars in 1989, is widely considered the worst Oscars ever. No, the lack of a host didn’t really have much to do with the show’s multitudinous failures. And no, this year’s producer, Donna Gigliotti, and co-producer and director, Glenn Weiss, aren’t likely to make the kind of mistakes that Allan Carr made back then.

But looking at that show,

Die Hard Supercut Video Ends the Christmas Movie Debate Forever

Die Hard Supercut Video Ends the Christmas Movie Debate Forever
A new video has brought together further evidence suggesting Die Hard is truly a Christmas movie. The debate as to whether or not the classic belongs in the holiday section has gone on for over three decades now, and for some, it's a no-brainer. There's plenty of Christmas imagery, it's mentioned quite a bit, it takes place on Christmas Eve, and the co-writer of the project has said that it is definitely a holiday movie. There shouldn't really be any further arguments after that, but there still is. Thankfully, there's a new video that helps to set the record straight.

The video editing team Cassetteboy have made a creative video that mashes up "The Twelve Days of Christmas" with Die Hard, and the results are fantastic. First of all, every number mentioned in the song is uttered in the movie, which is then backed up by all of the times

20 Little Details Behind The Making Of Die Hard

“Come out to the coast, we’ll get together, have a few laughs." Die Hard is one of, if not the only film that is universally lauded as the greatest action movie of all time. Even more unique is that it’s sequels, from great films to subpar ones, don’t take the luster of the first adventure. The movie simply changed so much about the action genre. Instead of ginormous, hulking action stars, John McClane was an Everyman. Bruce Willis made the choice to play him as a guy who doesn’t like himself very much but will always do his best to do the right thing.

It launched a dearth of lookalike films. Instead of one Everyman cop, how about two (Lethal Weapon)? Die-Hard on a bus (Speed)? On a plane (Air Force One)? Trains (Under Siege 2: Dark Territory)? The White House, a hockey arena, and even

International Glass Trailer Brings Plenty of New Action-Packed Footage

International Glass Trailer Brings Plenty of New Action-Packed Footage
A brand new trailer for Glass has arrived. Normally, international trailers don't show off that much footage that hasn't already been glimpsed previously. Nor are they typically that much different than what has come before. In this case, not only is there a lot of new footage, but this may well be the best trailer for the upcoming sequel to Unbreakable and Split we've seen to date. There are a lot of comic book movies coming our way next year, but this could be the most intriguing and, were it not for Avengers: Endgame, one could argue, by some measures, the most highly-anticipated.

The trailer kicks off with an ominous monologue from the titular Mr. Glass, aka Elijah Price, waxing philosophically about their place in the world as beings seemingly ripped from the pages of a comic book and brought to life. We then see these men through the eyes

The Five Best Bruce Willis Movies of His Career

If you want to talk about someone that’s just tough and still able to take on roles that are complicated and dramatic then you should be thinking of Bruce Willis at some point. He’s not exactly what you would think of in terms of being the strict archetype of a hero but he is the everyman type that can do a little bit of everything in a kind of haphazard, slapdash sort of way. But that’s why so many people love the guy, he can take a role that might not be entirely geared for him and make it into

Die Hard Prequel McClane Will Likely Be R-Rated And Have Flashbacks

“Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring — except for the four assholes coming in the rear in standard two-by-two cover formation.”

There are many reasons to be jolly over the holiday season, but one of my favorites is an excuse to revisit the adventures of John McClane, as he struggles to retake Nakatomi Plaza from sinister Eurotrash terrorists. Sadly, (with the possible exception of Die Hard With A Vengeance), the rest of the series doesn’t quite live up to the original, and the last entry, the Russia-set A Good Day to Die Hard, was just straight up terrible. But perhaps the upcoming prequel, McClane, could breathe some new life into the franchise.

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventure was interviewed by /Film recently and he spoke about what he’d like to see from the project. More specifically, he was asked if director
