Ten years, maybe even five years ago, Russell Crowe would be playing the Mark Wahlberg character. Now he’s playing the sleazy older guy villain role. Oh well, such is life (and aging) in Hollywood, I guess. Take a look at the first trailer for Allen Hughes’ “Broken City”, which finds Mark Wahlberg in the very familiar role of a tough-as-nails, streetwise cop who is forced to go up against a powerful, slick politician played by Crowe. Much political machinations, sex, violence and threatening in low tones ensue.
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.
Also starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Barry Pepper, Kyle Chandler, Justin Chambers, Natalie Martinez, Alona Tal, and James Ransone.
Marky Mark takes it to the mayor January 18, 2013.
