For some movie buffs, it’s an argument that arises every holiday season: Is “Die Hard” starring Bruce Willis a Christmas movie? After all, it takes place during a holiday office party, there’s Christmas music and it snows at the end. But then again, "Die Hard" is an action movie, was released as a summer blockbuster and centers around an extremist who was recently excommunicated from a West German political terrorist group.
According to a poll by YouGov, barely 20 percent of people polled said “Die Hard” was a Christmas movie. The survey, conducted December 15, 2017, questioned 4,340 U.S. adults.
As far as the stars are concerned, Willis said the film wasn’t a Christmas movie during a Comedy Central Roast in 2018, while screenwriter Steven E. de Souza tweeted the opposite in 2017.
