Every action movie fan loves a good dose of wanton destruction, and the Die Hard films do not disappoint. But forget the thrills, spills and epic action of movieland; let's focus on the cold hard cash.

So how many dollars' worth of damage did Die Hard deliver?

The movies are a pricey business, especially for the Die Hard franchise.

Wow. I guess those Nakatomi towers don't come cheap. Here's the full video below for your viewing entertainment, expect some tasty li'l details for the Die Hard moviegoer.


What do you reckon is the most catastrophically economically destructive action movie? Surely some semi-apocalyptic mess such as Deep Impact? Quite a lot of stuff gets trashed in that one. Or World War Z, just in terms of widespread pandemic. Mmmm, cheerful Christmas thoughts.
