First Lazy Poster for 'Broken City' with Mark Wahlberg & Russell Crowe
Theatrical releases in the early part of the year are normally from the bottom of the barrel. However, Universal has found success with films like Contraband and Safe House, and Fox is hoping to toss out another gritty thriller in the same fashion. Broken City stars Mark Wahlberg as a private detective hired by the mayor (Russell Crowe) to investigate his wife to see if she's cheating on him. But when his wife's suitor ends up dead, the detective digs deeper and finds himself in uncovering a real estate scandal. Sounds like a solid thriller, but sadly, the first poster has just shown up and is anything but that. Basically it's some glamor shots of Crowe and Wahlberg that look meant for fashion ads with a title and credits slapped on.
Here's the first poster for Allen Hughes' Broken City via HeyUGuys:
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 28th, 2013. Excited?
