Blu-ray Review: The Cold Light of Day

The Cold Light Of Day

Stars: Henry Cavill, Bruce Willis, Verónica Echegui, Sigourney Weaver, Joseph Mawle, Caroline Goodall| Written by Scott Wiper, John Petro | Directed by Mabrouk El Mechri

With action films it seems that sometimes the story writers feel they don’t have to really try.  They seem to think that if they can get some recognisable stars that can put in a charismatic performance then it’s a safe bet that they will have a hit.  Sometimes this can pay off, if the action scenes are big enough and the viewers are mesmerised into enjoying the big explosions and gun battles taking place in front of them, they won’t notice that they’ve seen the story many times before.  This is the problem with The Cold Light of Day.

Will is on holiday with his family in Spain, but his thoughts are back home where he is being threatened with bankruptcy. »

Two New Action-Fuelled Clips from The Cold Light of Day with Henry Cavill and Bruce Willis

30 March 2012 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After getting eight new images and a new clip from action-thriller The Cold Light of Day yesterday, Entertainment One UK have sent over two fast-paced action-fuelled clips for us to share with you showcasing Henry Cavill’s brute strength and resourcefulness in the lead.

We last saw Cavill in Tarsem Singh’s Immortals, which took more than $200m. at the international box office, and with The Cold Light of Day and Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel as the actor’s next two leading roles, he’s clearly cementing himself as a rising action star/hero.

Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver star alongside Cavill, with Mabrouk El Mechri taking the helm, directing from a script co-written by Scott Wiper and John Petro.

“In 24hrs Will Shaw’s family will be dead.

Armed with a gun, but no information, distraught, confused and alone in an unfamiliar city, Will (Henry Cavill) is »

18 February 2012 10:50 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s been almost a month since we received the trailer for Mabrouk El Mechri‘s The Cold Light of Day, and en route to the film’s April 6th release date, Summit Entertainment has also now debuted a new theatrical one-sheet. You can see that in full-sized form below. [Fandango]

This will be Henry Cavill‘s first appearance since Tarsem Singh‘s Immortals, but Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, of course, remains the actor’s most anticipated outing. Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver, both of whom get a small sliver of poster treatment, round out the cast’s prominent names. The screenplay comes from Scott Wiper and John Petro. You’ll find the official synopsis below the poster.

‘Cold Light of Day’ Trailer: Henry Cavill Has Deadly Daddy Issues

30 January 2012 3:31 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Summit Entertainment’s The Cold Light of Day reads as being just another average entry in the mystery-thriller genre – with a slight Hitchockian twist, involving a vacationing young man’s family falling into danger due to the secret history of his otherwise seemingly-benign father.

That is, at least, before you learn that the film features Immortals star and the new Superman in Man of Steel (Henry Cavill), along with longtime fan-favorite acting veterans such as Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver – as the movie’s shrewd anti-hero and calculating villainess, respectively. In that regard, The Cold Light of Day suddenly becomes a film worth your attention.
