We witnessed our first presidential debate last night, so I think it is fitting that the trailer for Broken City came out today. It is the story of a corrupt mayor and a former cop who gets roped into a scheme and then blackmailed. The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Natalie Martinez, Jeffrey Wright, Kyle Chandler, Barry Pepper, and Justin Chambers. Allen Hughes (From Hell, The Book of Eli) directed and Brian Tucker (a newcomer) wrote the screenplay.
“In a broken city rife with injustice, ex-cop Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) seeks redemption–and revenge–after being double-crossed and then framed by its most powerful figure, the mayor (Russell Crowe). Billy’s relentless pursuit of justice, matched only by his streetwise toughness, makes him an unstoppable force–and the mayor’s worst nightmare.”
Broken City is in theatres January 18, 2013
