In the crime thriller Cold Comes the Night, Bryan Cranston (of Breaking Bad fame) stars as Topo, a virtually blind career criminal who takes struggling motel owner Chloe and her daughter Sophia hostage and forces them to be his eyes as he tries to retrieve a cash package from a crooked cop.
This harrowing tale of survival not only offers a gripping premise, it also features several plot twists that will keep audiences guessing. An R-rated flick, it features plenty of action, often resulting in bloodshed and murder.
Playing Chloe is Alice Eve, most recently seen in Star Trek: Into Darkness. Sophia is played by Ursula Parker, best known for the TV series Louie. Rounding out the cast is Leo Fitzpatrick (My Name is Earl), Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus) and Erin Cummings.
This is only the second feature film by director Tze Chun, known for directing 2009's Children of Invention, another intense drama involving the survival of vulnerable characters. Chun also wrote the screenplay along with writing partners Nick Simon and writer/actor Oz Perkins, both of whom worked on the 2010 movie, Removal.
Cold Comes the Night hits theaters in limited release Jan. 10, 2014.
