Some have made the claim that “Die Hard” is sneakily the best Christmas movie ever made, but according to a new poll most people don’t agree it’s a Christmas movie at all.
The Hollywood Reporter partnered with data company Morning Consult to ask Americans whether they would call the classic Bruce Willis action blockbuster a Christmas movie.
The poll results found that among American adults, only 25 per cent say “Die Hard” is a Christmas movie, with a whopping 62 per cent saying that it is not.
One person who had an opinion on the poll was Stephen Amell, who posted:
This isn’t the first time the “Arrow” star has weighed in on the movie debate, with him previously posting:
Earlier this year, Willis himself came out against the idea that “Die Hard” is a Christmas movie.
Men were more likely than woman to say it’s a Christmas movie at 32 per cent versus 20 per cent.
When broken down by age group, 30 to 44-year-olds were the most likely to say the film is a Christmas movie at 37 per cent.
The Hollywood Reporter and Morning Consult also recently conducted another survey to find out the Top 3 Christmas movies for each age group.
“Die Hard” managed to make an appearance in the survey as one of the Top 3 among 30 to 44-year-olds, who also chose “The Muppet Christmas Carol” and “Home Alone” as favourites.
Older age groups tended to favour classic films like “It’s a Wonderful Life”, “White Christmas” and “Miracle on 34th Street”.
Meanwhile, 18 to 29-year-olds skewed newer with “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, “Elf” and “Four Christmases”.
