So... Is 'Die Hard' a Christmas Movie?!

The old debate about whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas movie has been refueled once again!

This comes after the film's cinematographer, Jan de Bont, revealed Bruce Willis' reasoning for doing his own stunts...

"In the beginning, Bruce didn't want to do [the stunts]," he said. "But then he started to realize, 'Wait a second, if I do it myself there will be three cameras on me instead of one, because they won't want to do that many takes.' Actors like that because it means they don't have to do [the scene] over and over. If you notice that all the attention is on you and on getting it right the first time, you're more willing to take risks. My experience has been that each time actors do stunts like that, they're so happy and proud of themselves afterwards that they actually did it."

And of course, de Bont has his own take on whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas movie!

While the film does take place during the holidays, de Bont said, "I'm not sure if the spirit of Christmas is fully embraced by that movie, to be honest. To really call that a Christmas movie - it's a little far-fetched."

So... Do you think Die Hard is a Christmas movie?!
