Some days you just need a shot of old-school Mark Wahlberg. Today’s been one of those days on this end, so I found myself being like, “YEAH! GO MARKY MARK!” in response to the trailer below for Contraband. Perhaps you’ll feel the same way?
There’s nothing new really—it’s the same ol’ “Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in” storyline about a bad guy turned good guy turned bad guy (against his will!), complete with lots of action sequences and explosions and gun-waving. The difference here is that the entire cast is pretty great (well, the guys at leastI’ve never been a big Beckinsale fan… BUT I GET why men drool over her).
Here are the film’s two posters. I like the money-belt one better, probably because I think its tagline and image are unintentionally hilarious together.
“What would you hide to protect your family, Mark?”
“I would literally hide a ton of cash using duct-tape around my waist.”
Wahlberg and his gang of criminals hit theaters on January 13 against the Beauty and the Beast 3D re-release and the Queen Latifah/Dolly Parton music-centric flick Joyful Noise. Talk about yer counter-programming…
What will you be seeing that weekend? Do you enjoy the guilty pleasures of Tough Guy Wahlberg as much as I do?
