What do you get when you team up Superman with John McClane? A whole bucket-load of ass-whupping, that’s what… especially if you’re a cabal of shady government types who have kidnapped their family.
That’s the set-up (minus the Superman bit, obviously) in new action thriller The Cold Light Of Day, in which Henry Cavill’s family holiday is disrupted by the abduction of his mother and siblings. Fortunately, his old man (Willis) is still around, but unfortunately, he’s the one with all the enemies.
Take a look at the new trailer, below…
To be honest, if Bruce Willis is your dad, you have to come to terms with the fact that a lot of people will want to kill him. Still, Cavill seems to adapt well enough, grabbing hold of the nearest gun and raising a little hell of his own.
Directed by JCVD helmer Mabrouk El Mechri, the film looks a little short of the Bourne-standard of secret service actioners, but Sigourney Weaver looks a pleasingly frosty presence in the Joan Allen ice queen mould. And we’ve always got time for Bruce Willis smashing heads through car windows…
The Cold Light Of Day opens in the UK on 6 April 2012.
