Synopsis
Die Hard is the pinnacle of action movie goodness in my opinion and cannot be improved upon as its completely perefect as it is. However as its one of my favourite films I was intrigued whether I could put a different spin on it to give some fresh appeal. It struck me that as McClane spends nearly the entire runtime of the movie apart from all the other protaginists I could maybe use splitscreen to give the impression of multiple events taking place at once. Thus the idea for Die Hard 'til Midnight was born, and the edit evolved as Die Hard/24 style (semi) real-time thriller.

Intention

Main focus of the edit using split screen wherever logical to show McClane, Gruber and his cohorts, Police and Newscasters in splitscreen in the style of tv series ‘24’ giving a sense of parallel events taking place.
The film is set over a 9 hour timeframe with a 24 style ticking clock emphasising the real-time aspect with the intention of adding extra tension, pace and a fresh perspective.

Changes
When I decide to edit a movie I love I tend to leave everything in but try and and put a new spin on it, there are a few shaves and trims here and there to facilitate this new version but nothing siginificant.

There are however approximately 50 split screen/time stamp sequences, some lasting just a few seconds or so and others lasting 30-40 seconds, the use of which has brought the runtime down by about 12 minutes along with the shaves to the film here and there.

I’ve tweaked this edit slightly since its original posting, as the festivities are upon us I thought I’d shine a light on it again
