Take a gander at two new TV spots for “Contraband” director Baltasar Kormákur’s buddy cop actioner “2 Guns”, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as the cops (well, law-enforcement types, anyway) buddying up. I like how Wahlberg’s character refers to himself as “Special Forces”. That seems like such an odd thing to go around calling oneself, since it encompasses so much. But I guess it sounds cool, even if it doesn’t make much sense.
But never you mind that. If you have some time to kill, feel free to indulge in two very snappy, fun looking TV spots for “2 Guns”. It’s supposedly based on a comic book, not that that matters.
Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead an all-star cast in 2 Guns, an explosive action film that tracks two operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unique alliance: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent.
For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down.
When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Trench and Stigman are suddenly disavowed by their superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.
Starring Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Fred Ward, James Marsden and Edward James Olmos.
The guns come out August 2, 2013.
