Trivia: At just 97 minutes, it is the shortest of the "Die Hard" films by a large margin, being about an average of a half-hour shorter than any other film in the series, give or take a few minutes.

Trivia: Early in production, the film was under the working title "Die Hard 24/7", leading many media outlets and fans to speculate that the film was to be a crossover with another popular Fox property- the television series "24." (An unnamed studio insider even told a popular movie-reporting site that Fox had been tinkering with the idea very early in production to try and shake-up and revitalize both franchises.) The title and concept of the film were subsequently changed.

Trivia: The only film in the "Die Hard" franchise to specifically be written as an original "Die Hard" script not inspired by outside source materials. "Die Hard" was based on a novel titled "Nothing Lasts Forever." "Die Hard 2" was loosely adapted from another novel entitled "58 minutes." "Die Hard with a Vengeance" was a re-worked version of an earlier script entitled "Simon Says." "Live Free or Die Hard/Die Hard 4.0" was a combination of ideas inspired by a Wired Magazine article ("A Farewell to Arms") and elements from another script entitled "WW3.com." Ironically, despite being the only film in the franchise to be specifically conceived of as a "Die Hard" film, it was the lowest-rated film in the franchise by critics and audience polls.

Question: What is the Garden Ring?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: The ring road around the center of Moscow.

Question: Is John McClane ambidextrous? I noticed in several scenes, he'd alternate between using and holding his gun with his right and left hand.

Quantom X

Chosen answer: No. Bruce Willis (and thus, John McClane) is left handed. But guns are mostly designed for right handed people, so when he isn't holding a gun modified for him, it's easier to use it with his right hand.

Question: Who is the guy suposed to be that Jack kills in the beginning at the night club?

00:04:50

Quantom X

Answer: His name was Anton. He was an associate of Viktor Chagarin. Jack, although lying, said Yuri Komarov sends his regards. Chagarin and Komarov were former partners and Chagarin was the one who got Komarov put in jail. By Jack saying Komarov sent him, it made it seem like Komarov was out for revenge on Chagarin (by attacking his associates). The courts offered to reduce Jack's sentence for testifying against Komarov, which allowed Jack to get close to him and help him escape.

Bishop73

Answer: Just a nobody. Jack had to kill someone so that he would be arrested and that was his way of getting to the old guy (I forget his name). Additionally the guy in the nightclub was probably an enemy of the other Russian guy and it was a way of getting rid of him.
