Will Ryan Reynolds finally become a box office draw? (We doubt it). Universal Pictures didn’t even feature him on the first poster for the movie, which says a lot.
Safe House tells the story of a young house sitter (Ryan Reynolds) of a CIA-run safe house who must help a criminal (Denzel Washington), who’s being hidden there, avoid being killed as they flee to another secure facility when the first house is destroyed by villains who want the witness dead.
Denzel Washington got his start on the 1980s hit show St. Elsewhere.
