The first trailer for the Universal Pictures film 2 Guns has been released online.
The trailer (and film poster) were released by Apple on Friday. The film, directed by Baltasar Kormákur, is the Universal Pictures adaptation of the crime comic book by Steven Grant and Mataes Santolouco.
The book follows a DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer who start off investigating each other only to team up in the end to steal money from the mob. The comic was published by BOOM! Studios in 2007.
The film stars Denzel Washington as Bobby Trench and Mark Wahlberg as Marcus Stigman. Rounding out the impressive cast are Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Bill Paxton (Big Love), Fred Ward (Tremors), James Marsden (Enchanted), and Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica).
Here’s the synopsis:
“For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down.
“When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Trench and Stigman are suddenly disavowed by their superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.”
2 Guns opens on August 2, 2013. You can watch the trailer at Apple, or below:
