Denzel Washington in Cuffs on the First 'Safe House' Teaser Poster
No One is Safe. Universal has unveiled the rather bland first poster via Moviefone today for Safe House, a new action-thriller starring Denzel Washington as a rogue CIA agent under house arrest who must escape with his rookie guardian, played Ryan Reynolds (not seen yet), when their compound comes under attack. The poster simply features a slightly menacing-looking Washington sitting in the dark with cuffs on, but that's about it. Literally, that's it, besides the title and tagline and credits. I'm sure we'll see more posters or a trailer for this soon, but as a first look at this action flick, it isn't that exciting. Check out the poster below.
When a CIA-operated safe house is targeted by a group of bad guys, the facility's house-sitter is tasked with the dangerous job of moving the criminal who is being hidden there to another more secure location.
Safe House is directed by up-and-coming Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa, of The Fighter, Outside Love and his break-out hit Snabba Cash, also known as Easy Money in the US. The original screenplay is by David Guggenheim (Exit Strategy, Medallion). This was filmed in Cape Town, South Africa earlier this year. Universal is bringing Safe House to theaters starting February 12th, 2012 next year. Stay tuned for more!
