After Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles is taken hostage by the evil German terrorists led by Hans Gruber, an NYPD officer John McClane played by Bruce Willis sets on a mission to save the hostages.
This John McTiernan classic became a sensation in the realm of action movies and became the ritual for many to watch it during Christmas. The movie has also gone to inspire many sequels, but the original is still considered the best by many.
The actor has gone on to act in many classics and well-acclaimed films Armageddon, Pulp Fiction, and M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense, making him one of the most successful actors of his time.
Bruce Willis and Aphasia
Earlier this year, it was announced that the 67-year-old action star is suffering from Aphasia. This condition prevents the person from speaking coherently, uttering sentences incomplete and mixed up.
The Armageddon star’s condition has resulted in many of his films bombing and being panned by critics and fans, some of those films include Fortress: Sniper’s Eye, Gasoline Alley, Apex, White Elephant, and many more.
Back to Nakatomi Plaza
Shared on her Instagram page, Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Willis posted a video of the Unbreakable star standing atop the Nakatomi Plaza, containing outtakes of his character in the film, congratulating him on the 34th anniversary of the film.
Originally shot at the Fox Plaza, called Nakatomi Plaza in Die hard, the return of the actor to the Plaza has brought back treasured memories for many fans of this legendary film, made by John McTiernan in 1988, at the peak of his career.
