Poster-Crop Quiz: Can You Guess These 'Die Hard' Knockoffs?

Poster-Crop Quiz: Can You Guess These 'Die Hard' Knockoffs?

Feb 27, 2014

Yippee ki yay, melon farmers! It's time for another Poster-Crop Quiz. This week, in honor of the release of Non-Stop, which is sort of a "Die Hard on a plane," we thought we'd take a look back at the best Die Hard rip-offs throughout the years. These are films which took the formula from one of cinema's greatest action movies and adjusted variables just enough to achieve their own signature level of awesome. Usually the variable was indeed the location: X is Die Hard on/in a Y. We've gathered posters for some of the best Die Hard facsimiles and dragged them across 30 feet of broken glass. Take a look at the shards of what remain and see if you can identify all 10. The first person to correctly name all of the posters in the comment section will earn a shout-out in next week's quiz. It's not as good as cash and prizes, but much like these films, it's pretty close. 
To put us in the proper mind-set, behold the poster for one of the absolute weirdest Die Hard rip-offs in existence: 1996's Skyscraper (pictured right). We're not sure if we're more confused by the perceived necessity for a soft-core porn version of Die Hard or by the fact that someone actually expected us to believe that Anna Nicole Smith could actually fly a helicopter. 

Last week's answers: Collateral, Whole Nine Yards, Grosse Point Blank, Wanted, Hanna, Road to Perdition, Hitman, Pulp Fiction, Leon: The Professional, Munich. 

Congrats to last week's quiz specialist Keith Adams
