Broken City Trailer

Broken City Trailer: It's Mark Wahlberg vs. Russell Crowe

Mark Wahlberg has the role of tough guy down pat, and in Broken City, he's going there again to face off with the most slippery of villains: the dirty politician. Wahlberg is Billy Taggart, a former cop whose heroics earn him the attention of Nicholas Hostetler (Russell Crowe), the NYC mayor who has cleaned up the city (despite his really unfortunate hairstyle). Hostetler wants to use Taggart's special skill set for something under the table — to find out who his cheating wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones) has been seeing. When Hostetler's wife's lover shows up dead, Taggart realizes that Hostetler commits worse crimes than stuffing ballot boxes, but he refuses to be one of the mayor's minions.

Aside from employing one of the most overused trailer songs of the last two years, Kanye West's "Power," the story seems pretty original — and unpredictable. Not only am I interested in seeing who comes out on top here, but I also like seeing Wahlberg pitted against Crowe. They're two actors I wouldn't have picked to play nemeses, but it looks like they have the right chemistry to butt heads. Broken City comes out Jan. 18, and you can watch the trailer after the break.
