Trailer debuts for Statham flick Safe

If you know me then you will know I am a fan of Jason Statham's flicks. Whether it's the mockney gangsters in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, serial killers in Blitz or the crazy action in the Crank or Transporter flicks, I'm in there. So I am more than happy to share the new trailer for Safe, which opens in theaters on March 2nd 2012, and is about a former mixed martial arts fighter's struggle to protect a young girl who holds the secret behind an extremely valuable set of numbers. Judging from the trailer Statham is back to his ass-kicking best!

Director: Boaz Yakin
Cast: Jason Statham, Catherine Chan, James Hong, Reggie Lee, Robert John Burke
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.
