“He was most brilliant CIA operatives we ever had – until he went rogue,” says a voice over in the opening moments of the Safe House trailer.
 
Denzel Washington stars as a neck-snapping good-guy-gone-bad who is captured and kept in a safe house in Cape Town guarded by a young ambitious CIA agent, Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds).

But it’s not so safe after all, and Reynold’s character must move his dangerous captive to a different location.
 
“They’re here for me, but they want me alive. They’ll kill you,” Washington’s character tells Weston.
