Denzel Dominates New Poster for ‘Safe House’

A new movie poster for the upcoming Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds film Safe House has hit the web. The trailer is also available, and it’s embedded below.

While it’s nice to Denzel back in an ass-kicking action role (let’s just forget about those silly train movies), I rather wish they would have been a bit more creative with the poster design.

This is a terrible poster. Sure, Denzel’s face is enough to entice some fans into theaters, but Ryan Reynolds is sharing the top billing. It’s an action-espionage movie, and the best the designers could come up with is this?!

Safe House arrives in theaters on February 10 in the US, and February 24 in the UK. Alongside Washington and Reynolds are co-stars Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson, Robert Patrick, and Sam Shepard.

Synopsis: Denzel Washington plays the most dangerous renegade from the CIA, who comes back onto the grid after a decade on the run. When the South African safe house he’s remanded to is attacked by mercenaries, a rookie operative (Reynolds) escapes with him. Now, the unlikely allies must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead.
