Bruce Willis stars in The Cold Light Of Day trailer

And Henry Cavill is his son

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.

      Not been a huge fan of Bruce Willis in recent years (Cop Out anyone?) but this actually sounds kinds fun...

      It may just be me, but does this trailer show a massive potential spoiler in the 'you work for the CIA' followed by a sniper shot, Cavill ducking and the then noticeable absence of a certain Mr Willis throughout the rest?

      What on earth are YOU talking about? Cop Out is a steaming pile of liquid s**t.

      I already said this film sounds kinda fun, don't disagree with me and then agree in the same sentence...!!! Also, my opinion is that Cop Out was a steaming pile of liquid s**t (as writerdave87 so eloquently put it). If you don't like our opinion, well, I don't really care much either way...so there... But writerdave87 disagrees with you and have a go at him? Seriously, bipolar much? By the way, Assassination of a High School President (aka The High School Conspiracy) is available on Amazon from £12.50 - £14.99 (Region 2).

      Dalidab, your opinion is like your taste in guys. Bizarre, immature and frowned upon by most of civilised society. You give out as much as you get, so I suggest growing a thicker skin and manning the f**k up.

      I also like the look of this though, good setting and cast looks like it might make up for a potentially samy storyline. Cavill looks to have some charisma in the lead too.
