Watch: Mark Wahlberg & Russell Crowe in First 'Broken City' Trailer
After that cologne advertisement of a movie poster hit yesterday, we now have a much better impression of Allen Hughes' new thriller Broken City starring Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe. In a broken city rife with injustice, ex-cop Billy Taggart (Wahlberg) seeks redemption and revenge after being double-crossed and then framed by its most powerful figure, the mayor (Crowe). This looks pretty intense, and there might even be some twists and turns to keep audiences guessing. Crowe seems to be putting in another solid performance, and this should be a refreshing film in the normally dead box office month of January.
Here's the first trailer for Allen Hughes' Broken City originally from Apple:
Broken City is directed by Allen Hughes (From Hell, The Book of Eli) and written by Brian Tucker. The film follows an ex-cop-turned-private detective who is hired by the mayor (Russell Crowe) to see if his wife is cheating on him. The private eye (Mark Wahlberg) confirms those suspicions, and when the mayor's wife's cheating partner ends up dead, the private eye immerses himself in the mayor's business and uncovers a real estate scandal that involves the official dealing himself city-owned properties. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kyle Chandler and Barry Pepper also star in the film slated to hit theaters on January 18th, 2013. Excited?
