Star Wars topped by Die Hard, Wizard of Oz in UK’s most rewatched movies poll | Films | Entertainment


There are just some movies we Brits cannot get enough of time and time again. And now a new poll has found the UK’s most rewatched movies of all time. However, the original trilogy has been topped by three other classics.

NOW TV polled 2000 UK adults and it was Dirty Dancing, Die Hard and The Wizard of Oz that came out on top.

The three iconic movies have been seen on average 12 times each, according to the new study.

While Star Wars: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi came next on 11 times, alongside Mary Poppins.

Here’s the full Top 20 of the UK’s most rewatched movies of all time.

They added: “There’s nothing like an old classic to make us feel nostalgic and eased, so it’s not surprising we’ve been enjoying re-watching our favourites, even in the bathtub.”

Last Christmas, NOW TV released an unauthorised parody in Die Hard… ON ICE.

The video is only a minute long, but it’s certainly a hilarious spectacle.

Hollywood stunt artist Tom Boney (Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and Dunkirk) stars as Bruce Willis’ John McClane.

While four-time British silver medallist figure skater Thomas Paulson takes on Alan Rickman’s villainous Hans Gruber.

The trailer features take-offs of some of Die Hard’s most famous scenes from Yippee-Ki-Yay to McClane’s slithering through an air vent.

The streaming service was also behind that Jurassic Park Jeff Goldblum statue, which appeared by Tower Bridge in London a couple of years ago.

The vast likeness was of the famous scene where Dr Ian Malcolm is reclining with his chest bared.
