Take a look at the first trailer for the Allen Hughes
-directed drama Broken City,
starring Mark Wahlberg
and Russell Crowe
Wahlberg stars as a cop-turned-P.I. who is hired by the Mayor played by Crowe to find out if his wife is having an affair.
Hughes is directing from a script by newcomer Brian Tucker,
with the director producing alongside Wahlberg and the latter’s frequent collaborator, Stephen Levinson
(Entourage, Boardwalk Empire).
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
“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.”
Broken City opens on January 18th, 2013, and also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Barry Pepper and Kyle Chandler.
