New poster for Safe House

A new poster has been released for upcoming CIA thriller Safe House , and from the looks of it, co-stars Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington appear to have the mean and moody routine down pat.

The new monochrome poster is a fairly one-paced affair, with Reynolds adopting the traditional action-thriller pose of staring into the middle distance, while Washington does his level best to stare straight into your brain.

Set in South Africa, the film will see Washington play a renegade CIA operative being held in a safe house by Ryan Reynolds’ inexperienced agent. When a team of bloodthirsty mercenaries storm the location, Reynolds must put his trust in this most slippery of characters in order to ensure they both escape with their lives.

Not exactly a novel plot then, but one with plenty of scope for some meaty action. And if Training Day was anything to go by, we do enjoy it when Denzel Washington taps into his dark side.

Directed by Daniel Espinosa and co-starring Robert Patrick, Brendan Gleeson and Vera Farmiga, Safe House will open in the UK on 24 February 2012.
