Exclusive: The Cold Light Of Day Clip
Bruce Willis' super punch-out!

28 March 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

It seems almost too obvious to mention, but the bad guys in The Cold Light Of Day seem to have overlooked the fact that the Shaw family, their victims of choice, includes Superman and John McClane. This new clip from the film shows why that might have been a bad idea. Seriously, who else do they need to see sitting around the Shaw dinner table to think they might be better off picking on someone else? The Kraken?

 
Henry Cavill and Bruce Willis - for 'tis they - are separated by a sinister gang of nasties when old man Shaw is kidnapped. The baddies represent even more sinister interests, including Sigourney Weaver's shadowy figure, who have dark designs on Willis's ex-spook. Well, at least they've got Ellen Ripley on their side.

The man presiding over the carnage is French director Mabrouk el Mechri, director of meta-mindbender JCVD. He's gone from the Muscles from Brussels to the, erm, Willis from West Germany*, and, judging by this footage, hasn't shirked on the violence. It's strong medicine, especially the bit with the classic multiple-door-slam-on-body technique. Heck, why not? It's served the likes of Vinnie Jones and Jason Voorhees well in the past.


The Cold Light Of Day will be kicking down cinema doors and punching its way to the pick 'n' mix counter from April 6. Head here for the full trailer.

*Fun fact: Bruce Willis was born in West Germany! We're not just throwing this stuff together, you know.
