Does 'Skyscraper' look too much like 'Die Hard'?

"Skyscraper" hits theaters on Friday, July 13, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The action flick has been getting mixed reactions since the trailer premiered during the Super Bowl. While some pointed out the big jumping stunt is just unrealistic, others argue the movie looks eerily similar to the classic Christmas action epic "Die Hard." Others could care less, "Skyscraper" looks badass and it has the Rock in it. There's not much more moviegoers could ask for. What do you think?

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.
