Red-band trailer for Baltasar Kormakur’s 2 Guns

Universal Pictures has released a cool red-band trailer for Contraband director Baltasar Kormakur’s new action-drama 2 Guns.

The film is based on the graphic novel of the same name, and focuses on an elaborate scam as a DEA agent and a Naval Intelligence Officer investigate one another in the belief that they are each stealing money from the mob.

Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg star as the central pair, with Bill Paxton, Paula Patton, James Marsden, and Edward James Olmos all offering great support.

2 Guns is out in the US on August 2nd, with Ireland following on August 16th.

Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead an all-star cast in 2 Guns, an explosive action film that tracks two operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unique alliance: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent.

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.
