Lionsgate will be bringing the action film The Cold Light of Day, starring Bruce Willis and Henry Cavill, to Blu-Ray in January.
It’s never a good sign when a studio randomly decides to shift a straight-to-DVD film to wide release, without a single bit of promotion. That’s what happened to the latest Bruce Willis action film The Cold Light of Day, which also stars Henry “Superman” Cavill.
The film most likely went wide due to a contractual agreement in Willis’ contract with Lionsgate, which resulted in an expected bomb on the box office front and a critical disaster on the audience front. I’ve seen the film (on opening night in an empty auditorium) and I can tell you first hand that it is beyond horrible. It’s an action film without action or a story and the only saving grace is Bruce Willis’ few moments on camera.
The film will be coming to Blu-Ray with not a single special feature confirmed, so let’s just assume a 1080p video transfer and either a 5.1 or 7.1 DTS-HD audio track.
The Cold Light of Day hits Blu-Ray on January 29th, 2013.
