MAYBE: Director John McTiernan Acknowledges It Is
While director John McTiernan didn’t directly state his opinion about whether he thinks it’s a Christmas movie, he acknowledged that Die Hard has become something of a holiday staple in an interview with Men’s Journal.
“While making the movie, we were just busy putting one foot in front of the next,” McTiernan said. “The idea that it’s endured is wonderful and the idea that it’s turned into a Christmas movie is kind of shocking. I guess we’re a pretty brutal bunch if that’s what we call a Christmas movie [laughs]. If you compare to the last generation, their Christmas movie is It’s A Wonderful Life. Our Christmas movie is Die Hard. Oh my god, how did that happen? It’s kind of taken a life of its own.”
