To commemorate the 25th anniversary of "Die Hard," Fox has installed a giant mural of Bruce Willis as John McClane on its studio lot in Century City.

The 35-foot mural was installed on the side of Soundstage 8 by muralist Van Hecht-Nielsen and painter Fernando Cepeda.

At the celebration, Fox Filmed Entertainment chair Jim Gianopulos' said the reasoning for the mural was simple.

"If you look around the lot, there’s Star Wars, The Simpsons, The Sound of Music, all classic properties that have defined the studio’s history,” said Gianopulos. “This is another iconic film with a singular and enduring legacy."
