Fox Hosting Epic 'Die Hard' Marathon of All Five Movies in February
Yippee-ki-yay, Mother Fox-er! 20th Century Fox is finally, thankfully (for giving us this), understanding the love for the Die Hard franchise and is hosting all out big promo events for the release of the fifth movie this February (on the 14th, Valentine's Day). The studio has announced a one day, five film marathon on Wednesday, Februray 13th just before the release of A Good Day to Die Hard (likely culminating in a midnight launch). While I hate the fourth film, the first three are exactly the kind of action movies I would watch a marathon of, so this is a perfect event leading up to the release of the fifth R-rated Die Hard movie.
Information about the event is currently sparse considering it was just announced today, but it sounds like a coordinated promo with a specific movie theater chains (likely AMC and Regal to start). Full details should be available from Fox soon, but the marathon will include the original 1988's Die Hard, 1990's Die Hard 2: Die Harder, 1995's Die Hard with a Vengeance, 2007's Live Free or Die Hard and the new one, 2013's A Good Day to Die Hard. All of them star Bruce Willis as badass hero John McClane. Watch the latest explosive trailer for John Moore's A Good Day to Die Hard here if you haven't yet. Who is attending?!

We've got a funny issue with "Die Hard" in Poland - when the first movie came out it was a bit hard for distributor to find a proper translation for the title so he made his own - "Die Hard" in Poland is known as "Szklana Pulapka" which means "Glass Trap" (due to Nakatomi building in the movie which was made of glass). However what they didn't think about is the sequel possibility. So every single movie in the franchise is called "Glass Trap" (2,3,4,5) even though it has nothing to do with Nakatomi anymore... Praise polish translators! 😀

That's hilarious! Here's some translated in Romanian and then back to English: Despicable Me -> I'm A Little Prick Fighting -> Let's Go! We're Fighting! American Reunion -> American Pie: Once Again On the Slice Watchmen -> The One Who Watches

Excellent article! It's apparent you've gone to a lot of trouble to research and write this article.
