Overview
High above the city of L.A. a team of terrorists has seized a building, taken hostages, and declared war. But one man has managed to escape detection... an off-duty cop. He's alone... tired... and the only chance anyone has.
BRUCE WILLIS stars as new york city detective John McClane, newly arrived in Los Angeles to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged wife. But as McClane waits for his wife's office party to break-up, terrorists seize control of the building.

Easter Eggs
On DISC 2 go to the Main Menu and press [Right]. If you press [Enter] now, you will see an explosion of the Nakatomi Building from the film, which in real life actually is the 20th Century Fox Office Building, followed by the line 'There Goes Fox Home Entertainment!'.

From DISC 2's Main Menu select 'From The Vault' and then 'Outtakes.' Then select 'The Vault' and on the next screen move to 'Production Audio Only' and press [Up]. This will highlight a small gun on the screen, which will give you the chance to watch the Outtakes with Music Only.
