In the promo video, Reynolds and Washingon play unlikely allies who must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead.
Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for "Safe House" via Apple. The promo video sees a great collaboration between Ryan Reynolds and Oscar-winner Denzel Washington and plenty of high-octane action scenes. Both actors are seen teaming up to stay alive and getting into various fighting scenes on the city streets.
Filmed in Cape Town, South Africa, the action film centers on a young housesitter of a CIA-run safe house. The housesitter, played by Reynolds, must help the criminal, played by Washington, who's being hidden in the safe house as they flee to another secure facility when the first house is destroyed by villains who want them dead.
"Safe House" is directed by Daniel Espinoza, with David Guggenheim penning the script. Joining Reynolds and Washington in the cast ensemble are Vera Farmiga, Tim McGraw, Liam Cunningham and Brendan Gleeson. The movie is slated for a February 10, 2012 release in theaters across the U.S.
