The CIA's best agent has become their most dangerous threat.

Two-time Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington (Training Day, Unstoppable) and Ryan Reynolds (The Change-Up, The Green Lantern) star as unlikely allies in Safe House the explosive action-thriller.

Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington), one of the CIA's most dangerous traitors, resurfaces in South Africa after alluding capture for almost a decade. When Frost is captured and taken to the local safe house for interrogation, brutal mercenaries attack, forcing one rookie agent, Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds), to take the infamous fugitive on the run.

Weston struggles to deliver Tobin to the next safe house, as the traitorous manipulator toys with his morality and youthful idealism. A deadly challenge has been set for the inexperienced operative, as he is eventually forced to fight alongside his untrustworthy ally in a bid to stay alive long enough to reveal who wants them dead.

Packed with intense action and thrilling suspense, Safe House takes you on a deadly ride through a covert world, where no one and no place is ever safe.
