Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? The world may never come to an agreement on this matter.

Lead actor Bruce Willis attempted to put the argument to rest during his Comedy Central Roast earlier this year saying the film doesn't qualify.

On Tuesday, film studio 20th Century Fox took to the other side of the argument with a newly recut trailer of the film, making a convincing case to all the naysayers.

"Facing Christmas 3,000 miles from his estranged wife and two children, New York policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) flies to Los Angeles bearing presents and hoping to patch up his marriage. Stylish and cool Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) is in Los Angeles as well for the holiday season, but he's not there to give out presents.

He's there to take: more than $600 million in negotiable bearer bonds from the multinational Nakatomi Corporation, where McClane's wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) is an executive. When the takeover becomes hostile, it's up to John McClane to take on the terrorists with all the grit and determination he can muster--but not without a sense of humor," the trailer's description reads.
