Mark Wahlberg stars in the lead – therefore guaranteeing its brilliance; I’m a big Wahlberg fan – alongside the likes of the excellent Ben Foster, Giovanni Ribisi, Kate Beckinsale, J.K. Simmons, and Lukas Haas, with Wahlberg’s brother, Robert Wahlberg, also taking a smaller role.
We’ve now got a brilliant new clip to share with you from the film, courtesy of Fandango, which should nicely whet your appetite and get you as excited to see this as I am, if you aren’t already.
“Chris Farraday (Wahlberg) long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (Ribisi), Chris is forced back into doing what he does best – running contraband – to settle Andy’s debt. Chris is a legendary smuggler and quickly assembles a crew with the help of his best friend, Sebastian (Foster), to head to Panama and return with millions in counterfeit bills.
Things quickly fall apart and with only hours to reach the cash, Chris must use his rusty skills to successfully navigate a treacherous criminal network of brutal drug lords, cops and hit men before his wife, Kate (Beckinsale), and sons become their target.”
Director Baltasar Kormákur is already set to re-team with Wahlberg on 2 Guns, which I think it’s a great indication that they’ve had an awesome time filming Contraband, which in turn is a great indication that we’ll have an awesome time watching it.
This new clip sees Wahlberg talking to his boss, Ribisi, and things don’t look to be going quite his way, with the possibility of a $700k debt looming over his head – obviously not a nice situation to be in. Contraband will be hitting our screens on 16th March next year, which is a date that can’t come fast enough for me. Without further ado, here’s the great new clip. Enjoy.
