’2 Guns’ Trailer: Lots of Action, Lots of Laughs, Lots of Denzel and Wahlberg
Universal Pictures wants you to know that, yes Denzel and Marky Mark can toss off clever dialogue while dashing through mayhem and outrunning the bad guys in the new trailer for "2 Guns," an action thriller due this August.
The trailer starts with two guys in a vintage muscle car exchanging some vaguely Tarantino-esque dialogue about whether the following really is a well-known saying: "Never rob a bank across from a diner that has the best doughnuts in three counties."
Check out the trailer here:
As it turns out, moments later, those guys -- Bobby (Washington) and Stig (Wahlberg) -- are in fact robbing a bank across the street from that very diner, which is full of cops. Despite that drawback, the guys are soon driving away with a pickup truck full of cash, and when they pull over, Bobby figures they've gotten away with $40 million. Bobby then pulls out a gun and a badge, and we learn both guys are working for different law enforcement agencies – Bobby (Denzel Washington) is with the DEA, and Stig (Mark Wahlberg) is a petty officer with the Naval Police's Special Forces branch. The news doesn't go over well with either of them, leading to a car chase and a fistfight. But Stig agrees when Bobby says, "The bank was a set up. We've gotta find out whose money that was."
"Like we're working together?" Stig asks.
"No, not like we're working together," Bobby says with distain. "Like we're working in the same vicinity. In the same area code"
Like it or not, Bobby and Stig really are working together, and they're promptly ambushed by some scary looking guys with guns, and told by a sinister looking fellow (played by Edward James Olmos), "You ripped off the CIA." Bobby and Stig are given an ultimatum to get the cash out of lock up in 24 hours, and soon the two lawmen are up against some serious crashes, explosions, and armed assaults as they find themselves on the wrong side of these corrupt lawmen. Bobby does get to have some enjoyable downtime with a seriously sexy woman named Deb (Paula Patton), but that's just a set up for her being kidnapped by the bad guys. And while Bobby and Stig are on the run and showing just who's bad in this squabble, they rank out on one another like friends who aren't friends in between explosions, gunfights, and attacks from angry bulls (no, really).
