We’ve got a trailer for an action flick called Survive the Night for you to check out starring Bruce Willis (Die Hard, The Sixth Sense) and Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill, Riverdale). The home-invasion hostage thriller also stars Lydia Hull, Tyler Jon Olson, Shea Buckner, and Jessica Abrams. The movie is directed by Iranian-American filmmaker Matt Eskandari, from a screenplay by Doug Wolfe.
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
After his brother Mathias (Tyler Jon Olson) is mortally wounded in a robbery gone bad, Jamie (Shea Buckner) stalks trauma doctor Rich (Chad Michael Murray) from the hospital to his home. While holding Rich’s wife and daughter hostage, the unhinged murderer forces Rich to operate on Mathias. But in order for him and his family to survive the night, Rich must team up with his estranged tough-as-nails father, retired sheriff Frank (Bruce Willis), in order to gain the upper hand and turn the tables on the criminals.
This movie didn’t grab me in the trailer. I like Bruce Willis, and I like a good thriller, but I didn’t really follow all the stories going on, and I didn’t find myself caring very much. Hopefully it does turn out to be a good popcorn flick, and gets a better trailer to reel us in. Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think.
Survive the Night is set to hit select theaters and VOD starting May 22nd.
