LOS ANGELES, March 12 (TheWrap.com) – “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 September 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.
Cavill, who played Theseus in Relativity’s “Immortals,” stars as Superman in “Man of Steel,” from Warner Bros. That movie opens June 14, 2013.
