Today we have a new 60-second spot for Safe, the latest Jason Statham action movie vehicle which once again features the pro athlete-turned-action-star kicking heads and dodging gunfire.
This time the action is set in New York City, as Statham finds himself on the rabbit’s end of a nonstop steeple chase through the city, trying to stay one step ahead of two warring gangs, cops both honest and crooked, shady government agents – all who want the code that Statham’s young companion has locked inside her brilliant mind.
Check out the latest TV trailer for Safe, followed by a more detailed synopsis of the film’s plot, below:

It’s easy to forget that there have been only two theatrical trailers unveiled for director Andrew Stanton’s live-action/CGI treatment of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ sci-fi novel “A Princess of Mars”, here re-titled John Carter. There has been so much in the way of advanced footage released for the film, it almost feels as though anyone who regularly visits their local movie theater should be sick of hearing about it by now.
That’s far from the case, though, judging by the film’s weak preliminary tracking results, which suggest that awareness and interest are not that high among casual moviegoers. Hence, Disney has released a third (and final) John Carter trailer that’ll be airing on big screens around the U.S. during the week-and-a-half left until the movie hits theaters.

Despite the onslaught of niche theatrical nominees, ABC’s broadcast of The 84th Academy Awards still managed to garner a 4% rise in the ratings from last year – thanks to Billy Crystal returning as host.
In total, 39.3 million viewers tuned in to see Crystal take the stage once again. Unfortunately, Crystal’s return, while generally entertaining, was not the ratings winner that everyone had hoped to be. Never before had the Oscars failed to attract fewer than 40 million viewers with Crystal hosting.
The host, however, is not the only factor that impacts the ratings of the Oscars. Most important is the popularity of the movies nominated in the top categories. While the likes of George Clooney and Brad Pitt may have been nominated, this year’s Academy ...
