“The Cold Light of Day,” with Henry Cavill, Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver, will get a limited release in September instead of a wide release in April
"The Cold Light of Day," starring "Superman" star Henry Cavill, Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver, is getting a limited release in September rather than a wide release in April, Summit Entertainment said Monday.
The movie is about a young Wall Street trader whose life turns upside down when, during a sailing vacation in Spain, his family is kidnapped by intelligence agents who want to recover a mysterious briefcase.
The PG-13 thriller originally was set to be released domestically on April 6 — the same day as Universal releases its comedy "American Reunion" and Paramount releases "Titanic 3D."
On Monday, Summit said it is switching the date to Sept. 7, and instead of a wide release, the movie will have a limited release.
No major films are scheduled for release that day.
An individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap that Summit plans a targeted release in the nation's top markets and, based on its performance, will expand the movie from there.
The film is being released internationally before it opens domestically.
