Watch: One-Minute 'Broken City' Trailer Pits Wahlberg Against Crowe
"Your husband set me up, and I'm gonna destroy him for it." It looks like there's going to be double-crossing abound in January when Broken City hits theaters. Russell Crowe wants someone to spy on his wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones), and even though it looks like Mark Wahlberg does a good job, there's something bigger at play here. There's a lot of intimidation and threats in this short, new trailer, and I'm hoping this thriller is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise dead time for good movies in theaters. Of course, the film being released in January is worrisome, but hopefully director Allen Hughes can make it good.
Here's the new one-minute trailer for Allen Hughes' Broken City from MTV:
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?
