Director Baltasar Kormakur bored us all to death with last year’s January action film Contraband, starring Mark Wahlberg. It looks like he’s re-teaming with his star and bringing along Denzel Washington for 2 Guns, which looks to be much lighter and actually funny.
There’s still some action in this first trailer, but I’m impressed by how buddy-buddy it looks, while still appealing to me as an action picture. Maybe Paula Patton won me over or maybe Kormakur has some range that he didn’t tap into with Contraband.
2 Guns also stars Bill Paxton and it hits theaters on August 2nd, 2013.
