  • The film also ranks #29 on Empire magazine's 2008 list of the 500 greatest movies of all time
  • The film's success spawned the Die Hard franchise, which includes four sequels (Die Hard 2, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Live Free or Die Hard and A Good Day to Die Hard), video games, and a comic book
