The fifth installment of the Bruce Willis ‘Die Hard’ franchise, ‘A Good Day to Die Hard,’ came out on Valentine’s Day.

As we all know, the plot of the first film follows NYPD officer John McClane (Bruce Willis) as he tries to save his wife Holly Gennaro and several others, who have been taken hostage by German terrorist Hans Gruber during a Christmas party at the Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles.

Because we had nothing better to do but stay at home for our Valentine’s Day, we decided to delight our readers by looking back to the original 1988 film and rounding up some alternative movie poster designs.

This was part of a personal design challenge: you have a running time of your favorite movie to design a full poster for that movie. When the movie ends, that’s your poster. The one above is the result!
