Yippee ki-yay! Bruce Willis introduced the world to the character of John McClane on this day in history, July 15, 1988, when the film “Die Hard” was released in theaters. The hit movie would result in four sequels: “Die Hard 2,” “Die Hard with a Vengeance,” “Live Free or Die Hard,” and “A Good Day to Die Hard” — as well as a video game series.

The plot centers around McClane, a New York City police officer, and his efforts to rescue his estranged wife and her colleagues after they’re taken hostage at a Christmas party by a terrorist organization.

“On this day in history, July 14, 1968, Hank Aaron hits 500th career home run.”
