"Safe"

Jason Statham is back with another actioner: the aptly titled Safe.

The R-rated film from Lionsgate follows a similar DNA from Statham's recent batch of big-screen projects. The only catch this time around, is that he'll be protecting a 12-year-old girl who can remember everything (not to be confused with CBS' Unforgettable, revolving around a female adult cop who can do the same). In the new trailer released on Thursday, even before Statham utters a word, he fends off several "bad guys" before delving deep into the task.

When he discovers that she was shown a never-ending number that's "not just random" but sequential, that's when he and girl team up with everyone hot on their tail. "It's a code," Statham, whose character is a former cop, figures out. The best moment may be the final scene between Statham and an unsuspecting victim at a bar.

"Let's go to war."

Safe, written and directed by Boaz Yakin and co-starring Anson Mount and Chris Sarandon, opens in theaters March 2, 2012.
