Universal Pictures has unveiled the trailer for the upcoming "2 Guns" crime thriller, which is based on a comic book and stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. Check out the trailer and poster below.
Plot: A DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer who have been tasked with investigating one another find they have been set up by the mob -- the very organization the two men believe they have been stealing money from.
The new movie is directed by Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband) and co-stars Paula Patton, James Marsden, Edward James Olmos, and Bill Paxton. It's set to hit theaters on August 2nd.
Basically an onscreen pissing contest. And with a title like "2 Guns", the interracial casting inevitably portends a scene where weapons are drawn and Washington says to Wahlberg, "Mine's bigger." The groundlings surrounding me in the theater will fall out of their seats laughing while I die a little inside. Roll credits.
I think it could be an entertaining flick, to be honest, although Bill Paxton's presence always puts me on edge. Fingers crossed his appearances are kept to a minimum and this thing comes out R-rated.
Contraband was a f*cking messy and implausible story-wise, and it wasn't helped out any by Kormskur's direction. I expect about the same here.

Looks more interesting than the bland generic Safe House, although it seems likely to descend into gunfights, explosions, double-crosses, triple-crosses, and Tarantinoesque Mexican standoffs.
Still, I was with it until they used the world's worst cover of "All Along the Watchtower." Every trailer lately either has a sh*tty pop song or a sh*tty rap song or some sh*tty cover/remix/sample song, don't know why...
This would be better than the f*cking GI Joe sh*t. I saw the first one and was repulsed by it's stupidity, bouncing f*cking leg machines hopping all over the pace. It LOOKED stupid. Why would I watch the sequel especially with Bruce The c*ck Willis, The Rock should pick better roles.
will smith hasn't made a god damn movie since 1995, where martin lawrence was called upon to be the f*cking comedy, i'm hoping his After Earth is a return to the serious role (with a interesting story) i knew was a better actor all along, jaden smith be damned, bad graphics be damned, bad boys be resurrected.
