Jason Statham in yet another bad boy movie; SAFE

We’re excited to share NEW images on behalf of Lionsgate’s upcoming SAFE! From the producer of the Kill Bill saga and Inglourious Basterds, this new thriller about a former elite agent’s forced to protect a young girl and her photographic memory from the police, Russian mafia and Triads, Jason Statham stars in this new thriller launching in theaters on April 27, 2012!

Jason Statham doesn’t stray from the roles he is comfortable playing that’s for sure. And in this role (synopsis follows) as a former agent mourning his wife he plays the part well. Not to be overlooked is Catherine Chan, his co-star in SAFE who is an amazing actress in her own right. She handles her role as an orphan who has seen to much with great flair. This movie will definitely have people tensing their shoulders and gasping in the theaters.

A second-rate cage fighter on the mixed martial arts circuit, Luke Wright lives a numbing life of routine beatings and chump change…until the day he blows a rigged fight. Wanting to make an example of him, the Russian Mafia murders his family and banishes him from his life forever, leaving Luke to wander the streets of New York destitute, haunted by guilt, and tormented by the knowledge that he will always be watched, and anyone he develops a relationship with will also be killed.
But when he witnesses a frightened twelve-year-old Chinese girl, Mei, being pursued by the same gangsters who killed his wife, Luke impulsively jumps to action…and straight into the heart of a deadly high-stakes war. Mei, he discovers, is no ordinary girl, but an orphaned math prodigy forced to work for the Triads as a “counter.” He discovers she holds in her memory a priceless numerical code that the Triads, the Russian mob and a corrupt faction of the NYPD will kill for.

Realizing he’s the only person Mei can trust, Luke tears a swath through the city’s brutal underworld to save an innocent girl’s life…and perhaps even redeem his own.
