Don’t mess with Mark Wahlberg. That’s what I got from this debut trailer for Wahlberg and director Baltasar Kormákur’s “Contraband”. That, and Kate Beckinsale playing a damsel-in-distress housewife just feels … wrong. The film is the Hollywood debut of Kormákur, based on the 2008 film “Reykjavik-Rotterdam”, which Kormákur not only co-produced, but also starred in as the main character. So basically he’s now directing Wahlberg in the role he originated. You can’t make this stuff up, folks. Anyways, the first trailer for “Contraband” and new images from the movie below.

Chris Farraday long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy, botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs, 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, 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, and sons become their target.

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Kate Beckinsale, Ben Foster, Giovanni Ribisi and Lukas Haas.

Grab some contraband January 13th, 2012.
