20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Die Hard

What does Christmas mean to you? Charity? Family? The Nakatomi Plaza?

For us the climax of the year and the (granted, fictional) events at the LA skyscraper are inexorably linked. Which is why, while others already begin to pre-emptively champion the C-word a full seven weeks before the event, we are warmed by one thing. As sure as day follows night, John McClane will be on our screens soon.

Here's our 20 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Die Hard. Merry John McClane, everybody...
