Does 'Skyscraper' look too much like 'Die Hard'?
Below is a description of the upcoming film "Skyscraper," per Screenrant.
The Super Bowl on Sunday saw the launch of the promotion for Skyscraper, an action movie starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, which is scheduled for release this July. The film, directed by Rawson M. Thurber, stars Johnson as a former hostage negotiator with a prosthetic leg who finds himself in a Die Hard-like situation in a burning skyscraper. The first trailer for Skyscraper, as well as its poster, is setting off some criticism from those who take their movie physics seriously.
Check out the trailer below, and tell us if you think the blockbuster has the potential to be badass in its own right.
John McClane, officer of the NYPD, tries to save his wife Holly Gennaro and several others that were taken hostage by German terrorist Hans Gruber during a Christmas party at the Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles.
Watch a clip from "Die Hard" below and tell us if the "Skyscraper" trailer looks a little too similar to the classic.
Cool. Thanks @nytimes for the #SKYSCRAPER nod being amongst The Best Super Bowl movie trailers. Lots of Die Hard meets Towering Inferno buzz. Very flattering comparisons - thank you. Buuut let’s talk about “that jump” seen around the world.. 👀😲https://t.co/NCEqvJ0dkB
