New 'Safe House' Poster with Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington
It's only January 2nd of the new year, and we've already got the first cheap poster of 2012. While the initial trailer for Safe House has sparked my interest (despite a February release date, this new poster does absolutely nothing to get me interested in the film. Clearly it's using the star power of Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds to get audiences into theaters, and while I hate that method of selling a film, that's not the real issue here. The problem is that this poster for the Universal Pictures film is a carbon copy of their poster for The Bourne Ultimatum (see it right here). Hope the paycheck was small for this one. See it below!
Here's the new poster for Daniel Espinosa's action thriller Safe House (via ComingSoon):
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. What do you think?
