Denzel Washington is back to playing a bad guy on screen. And this time, instead of terrorizing Ethan Hawke as he did in Training Day, the Oscar winner has Ryan Reynolds unnerved in the upcoming action thriller Safe House.
Reynolds stars as a safe house sitter for the CIA. He's keeping an eye on a notoriously badass criminal (Washington), who he has to all of a sudden move to another location after the safe house is threatened by a group of bad guys.
Judging by the trailer, it looks like Washington's character has a few tricks up his sleeve and may be taking in Reynolds's character as bait for a larger plan. Though Washington's last film Unstoppable was met with tepid reviews (even though i liked it), the action thriller genre is really suiting him. Safe House hits theaters February 10, 2012.
