Man, it's been raining trailers these past few days, hasn't it? Not that I'm complaining, especially with the quality of the pics coming down the pipe. Now, we have director Allen Hughes BROKEN CITY, starring Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, which looks to be the perfect kind of material for all involved. Hughes has done well with the crime thriller genre (MENACE II SOCIETY, DEAD PRESIDENTS) and both Wahlberg and Crowe have had their share of gritty, street-level thrillers along these lines as well. It's a well-cut trailer, which sells the movie a lot better than the stills and poster we've seen thus far.

Check it out:

I had kind of written this off as a rental when I first heard of it, but this trailer has won me over. I have to remind myself that Hughes is involved and has proven to have some solid style and grit with his films. This is his first film sans his brother as directing partner, so it will be interesting to see how this sizes up in comparison to their other flicks.

Here's the synopsis:

In a broken city rife with injustice, ex-cop Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) seeks redemptionand revengeafter being double-crossed and then framed by its most powerful figure, the mayor (Russell Crowe). Billys relentless pursuit of justice, matched only by his streetwise toughness, makes him an unstoppable forceand the mayors worst nightmare.

BROKEN CITY hits theaters on January 18, 2013.

I've been cautiously optimistic about this movie. I grew up on detective stories, and the idea of Russell Crowe as the Mayor of New York sounded inspired to say the least. I'm really starting to warm to Mark Wahlberg being something of the equivalent of Robert Mitchum or Sterling Hayden in their heyday, albeit, a little less charismatic.

Look! In that last pic Mark Whalberg is giving us the traditional Wahlberg stare.

This looks solid. I like the smarmy tan on Crowe and the bigger-than-just-this feel to the story.
Tidbit: She had one line! Dont be too hasty.

It looks way better than I was expecting. Wahlberg and Crowe look like they have good chemistry together.
