Willis made his feature film debut in the Blake Edwards comedy Blind Date, which also starred Kim Basinger. His next film, Die Hard, was his first blockbuster, one of the top-grossing movies of 1988. In 1989, Willis demonstrated his versatility by providing the voice of the wise-cracking baby in Look Who’s Talking, one of the top-grossing comedies in box office history, as well as playing a Vietnam War vet haunted by combat memories in Norman Jewison’s In Country.

In 1990, Willis starred in Die Hard 2, one of the biggest box office hits of the summer.
