Take one skyscraper, whack a vest on, bare your chest and add a dozen terrorists and you've got the perfect Christmas...
Step inside Press Play's Nakatomi Plaza and be greeted with a torrent of bullets, incredible one liners and lots and lots of sweat – Merry Christmas!
But this isn't any old screening. You'll need your wits about you as we transport you to the chaotic world of 1980s LA surrounded by C4 explosives, SWAT teams and copious amounts of white vests. Dare you take the lift?
We've never met anyone who doesn't like Die Hard and there's a very good reason for that - it's about as close to perfect as you can get. Littered with truly iconic moments, suspense and hilarity to boot, it's still up there a quarter of a century on.
If you haven't seen it (though we can't believe you haven't), here's the lowdown:
John McClane (Bruce Willis) is a tough New York Cop who's just arrived in LA to try and spend Christmas with his estranged wife, Holly, and his two children. A group of terrorists (led by the excellent Alan Rickman) storm the skyscraper where Holly works and it's left in the hands of McClane stop all twelve of them. The party's up, or in this case, it's only just begun.
Let's be honest, we've all wanted to be John McClane, we'd suggest you still wear your shoes, though. Prizes for the best outfit!
Followed by an 80s disco from Michael Clunkie Vinyl Junkie. Welcome to the party, pal.
