Last night at a family dinner for my mom, (happy birthday mom!) my brother pulled me aside and gave me crap for not having this trailer on the site yet. Honestly, I hand’t even heard of it – and it wasn’t on my radar, so I looked it up – and holy crap it looks FUN! I love me some Denzel Washington – and Mark Wahlberg. Put them together – and yes please!
Coming from ‘Contraband’ director Baltasar Kormakur, 2 Guns reunites him with actor Mark Wahlberg, joined this time by Denzel Washington. The film, which centers on a DEA agent and an undercover Navel Intelligence officer sent to investigate each other before they discover the mob have set them up. As distrustful of each other as they are of their enemies, they have to team up in order to survive.
Also starring Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Fred Ward, James Marsden and Edward James Olmos, the film will hit theaters on August 2nd and you can see the new promo material below.
Looks great! Trailer after the jump! (more…)
I’m not even going to put these pictures in a gallery. Just deal with it.
It’s Mark Walhberg playing at the park with his son Brendan.
Justin Bieber is about to make his acting debut, alongside Mark Wahlberg, in a new movie. “The script’s good and now we’re trying to figure out his whole schedule,” Wahlberg confirmed.
The movie is written by ‘How To Make It in America’ creator Ian Edelman, and the untitled film will star 41-year-old Wahlberg as a “reluctant mentor” to Bieber’s young basketball playing street hustler.
“Originally we had a great idea but we didn’t know what the script would be like, but then Ian just turned in this great f**g script,” Wahlberg explained, adding that Bieber’s manager and the film’s co-producer Scooter Braun “is super excited about it.”
Wahlberg – who Deadline reports will co-produce the picture along with Braun and his production partner Stephen Levinson — previously described the film as an update of the Paul Newman, Tom Cruise film The Color of Money set “in the world of inner city basketball” with Bieber playing the “wisecracking kid who’s very talented.”
As for timing, Bieber is currently committed to his Believe World Tour until May of 2013 and Wahlberg has a slew of big ticket films coming out in the coming year — including the sequel to the Seth MacFarlane hit Ted, a feature film adaptation of the 2006 documentary Cocaine Cowboys and a starring role in the next Transformers film.
Asked for when he believes film is set to begin principal photography, Wahlberg pinpointed early 2014 as a tentative date.
“With Transformers and Ted 2 and Cocaine Cowboys, maybe around February of next year we can shoot it.”
At first I was horrified, and then I calmed down and realized it IS Mark Wahlberg who I idolize for the most part (until he did ‘Ted’). If Mark has his hands in it, it can’t be that bad, right?
PS: I just love this picture of Bieber. He looks so…. soft.
And he’s not kidding.
Even though Mark Wahlberg has worked with some of Hollywood’s best directors, he’s come out and said that Michael Bay’s ‘Transformers 4′ is the “most important role” of his career. I’m having a really hard time with this one, bear with me.
“I’m thinking this is the most important role of my career and I can do something really special,” Wahlberg told Coming Soonabout his participation in Michael Bay’s “Transformers 4.”
Wahlberg and Bay worked together on the black comedy “Pain & Gain” and were going to make another film together. That project was jettisoned, however, when the pair decided “Transformers 4″ would be the right fit.
“Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on ‘Pain and Gain’ and I’m so fired up to be back working with him,” Bay said in a statement on his website in November. “An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the ‘Transformers’ legacy.”
According to Wahlberg, the idea of doing a “Transformers” reboot is what appealed to him most. “I loved the idea and I think we can make something really cool and kick-ass,” he told Coming Soon. “This is not something where it’s already established and I’m just in there to get a paycheck.”
Original cast members like Shia LaBeouf, who appeared in three “Transformers” films, will not return to “Transformers 4.”
“Transformers 4″ is due in theaters on June 27, 2014. To find out how Wahlberg’s children feel about his new job, head over to Coming Soon.
Believe it or not, I think Mark Wahlberg is somewhat of a genius. His movies (‘The Fighter’) and TV Shows (‘Entourage’ and ‘Boardwalk Empire’) are absolutely brilliant. When I heard he was going to star in T4 I was really confused. I’m not sure I understand one of my favorite celebrities taking on such a mindless role. I also find it strange they’re already “rebooting” Transformers, when it hasn’t been 18 months since the last one. Is Transformers really a good use of his talents?? I’m scared.
I don’t know why this news shocks me so much, but it really does!
Mark Wahlberg has just been cast to replace Shia Labeouf in the upcoming ‘Transformers 4′! The new movie will hit theaters on June 27, 2014.
Director Michael Bay made the announcement Thursday evening. Bay and Wahlberg recently collaborated on “Pain and Gain” – a movie about bodybuilders turned criminals set for release next April.
“Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on ‘Pain and Gain’ and I’m so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the ‘Transformers’ legacy,” said Bay.
The first three “Transformers” films have been critically panned but box office successes, earning more than $2.6 billion worldwide.
But don’t expect to see Shia LaBeouf reprising his role. The actor told The Hollywood Reporterin August that he is done with big blockbusters, saying the studios “stick a finger up your ass.”

And while you have to wait until 2014 for the next “Transformers,” some major sequels are in theaters this holiday season. Click on the “Launch Gallery” below to find out when “Breaking Dawn — Part II” and “The Hobbit” are in theaters.
Maybe I might have to see ‘T4′ now. Shia was good – in the first movie. After that, they just went downhill fast. I’m not a huge fan of Michael Bay’s movies – but I love me some Mark Wahlberg.
What do you think of the new lead?
