SAFE Teaser Trailer Online

First teaser trailer for Jason Statham's Safe.

Lionsgate and Yahoo Movies have unleashed the first teaser trailer for Jason Statham's next R-rated action vehicle, Safe. Watch it down below and sound off with your thoughts. Jason will be joined in the adventure by his co-stars James Hong, Reggie Lee, Catherine Chan and Robert John Burke. Writer-director Boaz Yakin led the production and penned the screenplay.

Plot Concept: Sometimes a chance meeting can save your life. Mei (Catherine Chan) is a 10 year-old Chinese math prodigy who is abducted from her home in Nanjing by the Triads; she is sent to America by the Triad Leader Han Jiao (James Hong), where she will serve as a "counter" for their extortion racquets. No computers, no paper trails - she keeps all the numbers in her head. One year later Mei's new adopted "father" Chang (Reggie Lee) brings her along to count the numbers as he shakes-down his business operations.

Luke Wright (Jason Statham) is a second rate cage fighter in the mixed martial arts circuit in New Jersey. When he blows a rigged fight, the Russian mafia make an example of him - murdering his wife and threatening to kill anyone he forms any kind of friendship or relationship with. Now homeless, destitute and completely isolated from society, Luke wanders the streets of New York like a ghost, hovering on the edge of suicide.

Big things begin to stir in the city, when Triad boss Han Jiao appears in New York, and gives Mei a secret number to memorize; on her way to use this number for an unknown purpose, Mei is violently kidnapped from the Triads by the Russian Mafia, who want the information she now has in her head— as does the corrupt Captain Wolf (Robert John Burke) of the NYPD. Mei manages to escape, but she won't be able to survive on her own for long.

Standing on a subway platform ready to throw himself under a train, Luke Wright sees the young and terrified Chinese girl being pursued by Russian thugs... he knows something is wrong, and he knows now he has to make a decision: continue on his downward spiral, or come back fighting in order to help a little girl he's never even met. Luke comes back to life, forcing himself into violent action, and over the course of one harrowing night he tears a swath through the city's underworld in order to save Mei's life and redeem his own.

Safe strikes down theaters March 2, 2012.

Looks cool and a bit refreshing from his latest movies.

 I like Statham and I like watching him kick @$$ in films.  I can go to his movies and go to these movies and not expect some Oscar worthy performance (which in this day and age is a good thing) and just enjoy myself.

 Looks like a good Statham movie.  He's at his best when he's being simply a badass.

Looks to be another great Statham action piece.

Statham's movies are always pretty fun. That actress playing the girl seems pretty awful though. Hard to judge from a trailer but her delivery is... pretty bad.

can't watch the preview but the plot it sounds a little like the Professional

Why is Statham so good at playing a badass?

Wiseguy 11/11/2011 1:17:06 PM

Nice, like Statham too. I wonder if he's destined to remain a B level movie star though. I thought that after Snatch he was on his way but he seems to have stalled at the B level or supporting actor

I was thinking The Professional as well.  One thing though, the plot desription says he was an ex-MMA fighter but the trailer says ex-supercop, which one?

Statham is one of my absolute favorites, most of his films are pure fun and he's got a really good sense of how to say something hillarious while appearing serious and not serious at the same time.  The Bank Job is one of my favorite films and it's gotta be his best performance, without any greased-up roundhouse's either!  This looks like his average action, maybe a little better but either way I think he's destined to do the March and August release's and I'm fine with that.  I'm a little scared of his attempted American accent though..........
