See Mark Wahlberg Return To a Life of Duct Tape-Assisted Crime in the Contraband Trailer
Did you guys realize that Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale were starring in a little heist movie called Contraband? Me neither, but that's probably because Universal has quietly scheduled the film, from Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur, for a quiet box office
death release next January. But we're going to need something to watch during that winter wasteland month so let's take a look and see if super-angry Mark Wahlberg, his abs, and and Kate Beckinsale undressing for the camera can't motivate us to buy tickets.
It kind of looks like a poor man's Ocean's Eleven, right? Instead of Brad Pitt and George Clooney casing casinos for hundreds of millions of dollars via ingenius scams involving expensive copycat vaults, world class pick pockets and tiny Chinese gymnasts who can navigate security laser beams, Mark Wahlberg points a gun at someone's head and then duct tapes fat stacks of cash to his abdomen. Problem. Solved. The problem being that his brother-in-law got him into some trouble and now he owes Giovanni Ribisi's character (who can place that accent?) a lot of money that he doesn't have. Looks like it's time to return to his criminal ways!
Look for Contraband, which also co-stars J.K. Simmons, Diego Luna and Giovanni Ribisi, in theaters January 13.
