    New York City can be a dangerous place, but it turns out the most wanted individual is a 12-year-old girl. From the director of Remember the Titans and producer of Kill Bill and Inglourious Basterds comes the adrenaline-charged crime thriller, Safe, arriving on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy), DVD (plus Digital Copy), Digital Download and On Demand on September 4, 2012. Everyone's favorite action hero, Jason Statham (The Expendables), gives an exhilarating performance as Luke Wright, a mixed martial arts cage fighter who comes to the rescue of a terrified young girl on the run from the city's most dangerous gangsters.

    Catherine Chan shines in her film debut alongside Statham and keeps audiences riveted as she plays an orphaned math prodigy who holds a secret number that could ruin the Triads, the Russian mob and a corrupt part of the NYPD. The film also stars Robert John Burke (Limitless), James Hong (Kung Fu Panda 1 & 2), Anson Mount (Straw Dogs) and Chris Sarandon (Dog Day Afternoon). Loaded with thrilling special features including a writer/director audio commentary with Boaz Yakin as well as three featurettes, the Safe Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy) and DVD (plus Digital Copy) explodes onto store shelves September 4th for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.


    Luke Wright (Statham) was living a normal life as a second-rate mixed martial arts cage fighter until screwing up a rigged fight. The Russian Mafia decides to make an example of him to prevent this from happening again and murders his family. With nothing to live for anymore, Wright wanders the streets of New York full of guilt and anger until he encounters Mei (Catherine Chan), a frightened 12-year-old Chinese girl. An orphaned math prodigy, Mei had been forced to work for the Triads as a counter and holds the key to a numerical code that could destroy the Triads, the mob and corrupt cops within the NYPD. After discovering that the same gangsters who killed his family are pursuing her, Wright takes matters into his own hands to protect the innocent girl and seek revenge.
