Universal Studios has released the first poster and trailer for director Baltasar Kormakur’s upcoming 2 Guns. The film is based on the graphic novel of the same name written by Steven Grant and centers around a DEA agent and a special forces officer investigating one another under the assumption they are stealing money from the mob, only to find out they’ve been set up.
This looks like a fun action movie that reunites Kormakur and Wahlberg, who previously worked together in Contraband. Washington and Wahlberg, in theory, should have good chemistry, and the film doesn’t seem to take itself too seriously. And a mustachioed Bill Paxton as the villain is always a plus.
The supporting cast includes Paula Patton, Fred Ward, James Marsden and Edward James Olmos.
Academy Award(R) 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.
