Watch Mark Wahlberg And Russell Crowe In First BROKEN CITY Trailer
Check out the new trailer for director Allen Hughes BROKEN CITY.
Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) has a promising career as a New York City cop until the night he is involved in a controversial shooting. Stripped of his badge, but kept out of jail by New York’s popular Mayor (Russell Crowe), he re-makes himself as a private investigator.
Times are tough, and when the mayor offers Billy $50,000 to investigate the First Lady’s (Catherine Zeta Jones) extra-marital activities, it seems like a straight forward payday. Unfortunately, it quickly becomes apparent that the Mayor is not at all what he seems, and for Billy to achieve redemption he will have to risk everything — possibly even his freedom.
Always a tad jarring to see Crowe dressed in everyman’s attire. I’m more for seeing him in historical/period piece garb. Part of the Hughes Brothers directing team, Allen Hughes has previously helmed BOOK OF ELI with Denzel Washington, FROM HELL with Johnny Depp and NEW YORK, I LOVE YOU. Also starring Jeffrey Wright, Kyle Chandler and Barry Pepper, BROKEN CITY will be in theaters January 18th, 2013.
