1988: The action blockbuster "Die Hard," starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman, opens in theaters. In the role that made him a movie star, Willis stars as NYPD officer John McClane, who is called into action to save his wife and several others who are taken hostage by German terrorists pulling a heist during a Christmas party at a high-rise office building in Los Angeles. The movie made $140 million at the box office and spawned a franchise that is up to four sequels so far.
