Yippee Ki-Yay… ‘Die Hard’ comes to 4K!

by Kevin Haldon

Looking for that perfect present for your Dad this Fathers Day? Look no further we have got you covered! To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Die Hard, 20th Century Fox are treating us to an all new 4K Ultra HD copy of “the greatest action movie of all time” [a bonafide fact, fact fans!] and as if that wasn’t enough they are also releasing a Limited Edition Blu Ray Steelbook of the full movie collection on May 14th. I mean, yeah, okay, you will probably only watch 3 possibly 4 (depending on your mood) of the 5 films but come on that’s one hell of a Fathers Day box set to sink your teeth into.

I personally don’t think I need to give you the rundown on the Die Hard movies but just in case you have been living under a rock the last 30 years here it is, along with a little breakdown of what you can expect on this release:

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 (Alan Rickman), seize the building and take everyone hostage, McClane slips away and becomes the only chance anyone has in this beginning-to-end heart-stopping action thriller.

Fans can also purchase the complete Die Hard Collection limited edition Blu-ray Steelbook, available only at Zavvi on 14 May. The box set will include all five films in the franchise!


Die Hard 30th Anniversary Bonus Features (previously available on Blu-ray):

  • Commentary by Director John McTiernan and Production Designer Jackson DeGovia
  • Scene-Specific Commentary by Special Effects Supervisor Richard Edlund
  • The News Casts Featurette
  • Interactive Style Gallery
  • Trailers & TV Spots

I don’t have Die Hard on Blu Ray (sacrilege I know) but I feel like this Steelbook set will look right at home in my collection… Yippee Ki-Yay Happy Fathers Day!

Die Hard will be released on 4K Ultra HD (for the first ever time!), Blu-ray & Digital Download on May 14th; along with a Limited Edition Die Hard Collection Steelbook, available exclusively at Zavvi on the same day.
