Like Jason Statham, Mark Wahlberg reliably brings audiences out to the theaters, which is how we get something like last year’s mid-budgeted action thriller “Contraband” or the upcoming Allen Hughes-helmed “Broken City.” While the January release date suggests yet another generic Wahlberg actioner, “Broken City” boasts Russell Crowe in a co-starring role, and three new clips have hit the web showcasing the actor sliming it up.

After three straight "Transformers" movies, we kind of forgot that Michael Bay movies used to be fun. Testosterone fueled fun, sure, but fun nonetheless. But he's taken a break from making robots go boom to make his "indie" movie, and goddamn, if this trailer for "Pain And Gain" isn't a steroid boost right to the nostalgia center of our brains.

It's going to be a big 2013 for Mark Wahlberg, with at least three movies on the way, and possibly four (depending on where Peter Berg's "Lone Survivor" lands). But before he pumps iron in Michael Bay's "Pain & Gain," or gets set up by the mob with Denzel Washington in "2 Guns," Wahlberg will starting off the year in the grimy "Broken City."

Spurred on by its pulsing Kanye West accompaniment -- trailer-speak for “corruption, desire, and violence around the corner” -- the initial look at “Broken City” promised a sleek action-drama with Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe at full genre tilt, and now the first clip from the film has surfaced to confirm that perception completely.

First Michael Bay said his "Pain And Gain" star Mark Wahlberg would be in "Transformers 4," then he said, well, no, but we'll work together on a "different project" and then yesterday is sounded like Marky Mark was back in the fold. So we suppose it's no major shocker here. After what evidently seems like a fruitful collaboration on Bay's upcoming “Pain and Gain,” Wahlberg has been set for the lead of his sorta-rebooted "Transformers 4."

Just a couple of days ago, it was revealed that Hasbro posted their latest sales records, and earnings were down compared to last year. The culprit? Sales of "Transformers" toys had declined among other things. And while a new movie guarantees an uptick in toy sales, it's also about getting that core audience to care with an effort that will also appeal to those who may not know their Autobots from Decepticons. And while the first three movies in the franchise were massively successful, each making more than the last, it appears that Michael Bay and co. what to take their game even higher, courting a bonafide star to possibly lead the next installment.

So, is this another generic, urban thriller with Mark Wahlberg doing his burned out leading man thing, or something more? The January release date says one thing, the enticing lead turn by Russell Crowe says another, but see for yourself in the first trailer for "Broken City."

Considering the movie comes out in about three months, Universal decided they should probably start letting people know it's happening. And thus, the marketing department has slapped together a poster that looks like it was an outtake from the photo sessions for the "Contraband" one sheet. Welcome to "Broken City."

Um, yay? According to a Deadline report, "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin is nearing completion on his "Entourage" movie script, which would presumably complete the heart-stopping cliffhanger of the show's final season, with screaming Jewish stereotype Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), elevated to studio mogul status. After Ellin completes his screenplay, he will submit it to executive producers Mark Wahlberg and Steven Levinson and await the greenlight from HBO. We're already all tingly with anticipation.

Ever since he stopped being Marky Mark and became a proper actor, Mark Wahlberg has always seemed at his most comfortable on the big screen as part of a strong ensemble cast (a la breakout "Boogie Nights") or stealing scenes as a supporting player. Be it in the likes of “Planet of the Apes,” “The Italian Job,” “The Happening” or “Max Payne,” for a long time it looked like he just wasn’t going to cut it as a leading man. Of course there may be a few exceptions along the way (and feel free to point them out in the comments), but it seemed like two significant things happened in the last few years that have changed that.
