Despite being deep in his mature age, this doesn’t seem to stop Bruce Willis from being one of the more used tough guys in movies. Having taken part in around a hundred films, some of them pivotal titles to understand the action and mystery film scene of the last decades including Pulp Fiction (1994), 12 Monkeys (1995), The Sixth Sense (1999), Unbreakable (2000), Sin City (2005), Planet Terror (2007), and, overall, being the immortal John McClane in the Die Hard saga, he still has time to kick some major ass in modest action thrillers for the delight of his very numerous fans. And one of the upcoming titles in this category is home-invasion movie Survive the Night (2020).
In Survive the Night (2020), a disgraced doctor and his family are held hostage at their home by criminals on the run when a robbery-gone-awry requires them to seek immediate medical attention. After his brother Mathias is mortally wounded in a botched robbery, Jamie stalks trauma doctor Rich from the hospital to his home. Jamie proceeds to hold Rich’s wife and daughter hostage as he orders Rich to operate on his brother. This doesn’t sit well with Rich who teams up with his estranged father, Frank, to ensure his family’s safety.
Survive the Night (2020) has been directed by Iran-born American filmmaker Matt Eskandari, who has been the winner of several awards thanks to his horror and science-fiction epic Game of Assassins (2013), also known as The Gauntlet. This is not the first time Eskandari works with Bruce Willis since he was the star of his previous film Trauma Center (2019).
Together with Bruce Willis, Chad Michael Murray, Lydia Hull, Tyler Jon Olson, Shea Buckner, Jessica Abrams, and Ravare Elise Rupert also star in Survive the Night (2020). Doug Wolfe has been the writer of the screenplay.
The film is Rated R for violence, bloody images, and language throughout. Lionsgate, who owns the distribution rights, has scheduled the movie for a digitally release on May 22nd. Here you can watch the first trailer for Survive the Night (2020).
