Have you been hankering to see Denzel Washington back playing a truly nasty piece of work just as he was in Training Day? Then you’ll be happy to watch the trailer for Safe House, which features exactly that, all in the service of a high-octane action thriller co-starring Ryan Reynolds. The trailer is online over at Apple.
Directed by Snabba Cash’s Daniel Espinosa, Safe House finds Reynolds as a CIA agent itching for more field experience. But, because you should always be careful what you wish for, he gets far more than he expects when the facility he’s assigned to watch over gets a very high-profile “house guest”: agent-turned-rogue assassin Tobin Frost (Washington).
Turns out, some very bad people (yes, possibly even worse than Frost himself) have it in for the man, and will do everything they can do to make sure he’s pushing up daisies. With the safe house compromised, the agent and his prisoner have to flee for their lives. No easy feat when one of you is a stone-cold killer with zero morals...
Also featuring Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson, Robert Patrick and Joel Kinnaman, the movie will be out on February 24, 2012.
