Trailer Time! ‘Broken City’ starring Russell Crowe and Mark Wahlberg!

In the new movie ‘Broken City’, Mark Wahlberg plays an idealistic ex-cop, who finds out the New York City mayor (Russell Crowe) isn’t exactly the man he thought he was.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. To wit: In the 1996 film “City Hall,” John Cusack played an idealistic New York City deputy mayor who finds out that his boss (played by Al Pacino) isn’t the man he thought; in the 2013 film “Broken City,” Mark Wahlberg plays an idealistic ex-cop who finds out the New York City mayor isn’t the man he thought.

What sets “Broken City” apart from “City Hall,” despite nearly 17 years? The use of Kanye West’s “Power,” Catherine Zeta-Jones in full Lady MacBeth mode and Wahlberg’s burning intensity. “You’re going to walk away,” Wahlberg says with the gusto of “not you.” (Also, that is poor Kyle Chandler in a body bag at 89 seconds; Texas forever, indeed.)

Wahlberg has bounced from genre to genre in recent years, which isn’t an accident.

“Yeah, it’s all calculated,” he told Moviefone last year. “We always usually saddle up to do the complete opposite of the last thing that we did. And then you got to balance when they’re going to be released, what quarter they’re coming out. So right after ‘Contraband’ we went and did this Seth MacFarlane movie that’s a rough comedy ['Ted'], and now we’re doing ‘Broken City,’ which is a crime thriller and drama. That’s a movie that could come out a soon as next year. Russell Crowe, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jeffrey Wright, Barry Pepper, Kyle Chandler, I mean we got a stacked deck here.”

“Broken City” is out next year. Jan. 18 to be exact.

Can’t wait!

Mark Wahlberg Makes His Kids Watch Tattoo Removal Process

Celebrity dad Mark Wahlberg is trying to teach his oldest kids a lesson: don’t get tattoos.  Mark shared that he’s in the process of removing all of his tattoos and has been taking Ella and Michael along to witness the painful procedure.

“[All the tattoos] have meaning to me, but it’s both personal and professional.

I don’t want my kids getting tattoos. And I wanted them to be [removed] by the time I did The Fighter because putting make-up on and covering them up has always been a pain in the butt.”

I’ve taken my two older kids to the procedure so they see how painful it is and what I have to go through,” he reveals.

Mark also says that he’s hoping none of his kids catch the acting bug:

“I don’t want my kids to be in the entertainment business either, which is why I’m trying to build a lot of [separate] businesses.   If they feel [passionate about acting], and that’s the decision they want to make, then I’ll support them. But I’ll do everything I can to point them in another direction.”

It’s funny how most celebrity parents are adamant that they don’t want their own kids getting into showbiz.  I’m sure their own parents felt the same way.

Here’s Mark attending a photocall for ‘Contraband’ in Sydney this afternoon.

Mark Wahlberg Is Sorry For 9/11 Comments

Mark Wahlberg is back-pedaling this afternoon, apologizing for the comments he made during an interview with Men’s Journal about 9/11, claiming he would’ve landed the plane safely had he been on board.  He tells TMZ he’s very sorry:

“To suggest I would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible. “To speculate about such a situation is ridiculous to begin with.  I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive, it was certainly not my intention.”

Mark’s initial comments to Men’s Journal if you missed it this morning:

“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.’”

Do you think Mark needed to apologize for the comments?
