Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones star in the new Broken City trailer
Every time a new Mark Wahlberg movie came out, I used to give him a hard time about his acting ability. In fact, I used to get in debates with fellow Flix 66 writers about it, always losing the argument when they brought up his Oscar nomination for THE DEPARTED. To be fair, I was even starting to concede that Mark Wahlberg might be a decent actor after seeing him in TED this summer. But then I see the second trailer for BROKEN CITY and he delivers the line “your husband set me up and I’m going to destroy him for it” and lose all hope. The movie actually looks decent (I put it on the level with CONTRABAND), but sometimes Mark Wahlberg delivers his lines like a little kid telling you something he just realized.
BROKEN CITY stars Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kyle Chandler and Justin Chambers. The Allen Hughes directed film opens in theaters on January 18, 2013. Check out the new trailer below, featuring a sleazy Russell Crowe and a tough, angry Mark Wahlberg.
