Safe Haven Film Debuts on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD May 7


Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough star in this spellbinding romantic drama based on the novel by best-selling author Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook). When a mysterious, beautiful woman named Katie (Hough), moves to Southport, North Carolina, she sparks the interest of the locals, especially Alex (Duhamel), a handsome widower. Although she is attracted to Alex, Katie is reluctant to trust him – that is, until a new friend (Cobie Smulders) convinces her to give Alex a chance. But before long, a dark secret from Katie’s past threatens her happiness in this thrilling romance directed by Lasse Hallström (Dear John).

Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel's latest film Safe Haven tackles unconditional love and fear of the unknown, but it also underscores the importance of self-defense skills for women.

Unlike Katie, Hough’s character in the film, women don't have to be in love with the wrong person to risk getting hurt, which is why we've created a list of 10 key self-defense tips for women:

  • Trust your instincts. If something feels wrong, odds are something is wrong.

  • Be aware of your surroundings. Always walk in well-lit areas

  • Walk close to the curb, facing oncoming traffic

  • Carry bags close to your body

  • If a robber asks for your wallet, don’t hand it to them – toss it as far away from you as possible and run in the opposite direction

  • Don’t be afraid to get hurt while staying safe! Need to jump out of a window or a moving vehicle? Do it.

  • Use objects in your environment to your advantage: Smash a window, pull a fire alarm, or throw a chair

  • Yell. Yelling increases power as much as 33 percent and can attract help.

  • Use your elbow – it is the strongest point in your body, don’t be afraid to elbow someone who is hurting you.

  • Been thrown in the trunk of a car? No worries, kick out the taillights, stick your arms out and wave!
