While any other day this would just be a rote actioner, we're excited to see the studio debut by Swedish helmer Daniel Espinosa, whose stylish drug drama "Snabba Cash" brought him to the attention of Tinseltown. Toss in a hot script by David Guggenheim, a pretty strong supporting cast that includes Vera Farmiga, Sam Shepard, Brendon Gleeson and Robert Patrick, and wrap it all up with a damn fine trailer and we're in. The story is simple enough, following a young U.S. intelligence agent (Reynolds) who is forced to go on the run with his prisoner (Washington) when his safe house comes under attack. And Universal has released a batch of new images to reel you in as the movie heads to theaters along with a clip from IGN (there's also one at EW, but you'll have to go there to see it).
We're pretty optimistic about this one, and the ingredients are there for a soild thriller. "Safe House" opens on February 10th.
