Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe take the lead of an impressive cast, and after catching a great new TV spot last week, StudioCanal have released a new UK trailer to whet our appetites.
After seeing Wahlberg co-lead last year’s #1 comedy, Ted, I can’t wait to see him return to the crime-thriller genre that we all know and love him for.
“In a broken city rife with injustice, ex-cop Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) seeks redemption–and revenge–after being double-crossed and then framed by its most powerful figure, the mayor (Russell Crowe). Billy’s relentless pursuit of justice, matched only by his streetwise toughness, makes him an unstoppable force–and the mayor’s worst nightmare.”
Catherine Zeta-Jones stars as Crowe’s unfaithful wife, with Kyle Chandler, Barry Pepper, Jeffrey Wright, and Natalie Martinez completing the cast nicely.
Hughes (The Book of Eli) is making his debut as a solo director, having previously directed all his feature films with twin brother Albert. Newcomer Brian Tucker has penned the script, and Hughes, Wahlberg, and Stephen Levinson (Entourage) serve as producers.
Broken City is currently on wide release in the US, and will be released here in the UK on 1st March. For now, here’s the latest trailer to set the tone. Enjoy.
