Watch: Mark Wahlberg Investigates The 'Broken City' In 3 New Clips

The Playlist By Cain Rodriguez | The Playlist January 10, 2013 at 12:09PM

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.

Broken City Mark Wahlberg Russell Crowe

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.

Wahlberg stars as an ex-cop hired by the New York City mayor (Crowe) to look into his wife’s (Catherine Zeta-Jones) infidelity, but who ends up uncovering something far more sinister. Going by the clips that have surfaced, though they are on the short side, the film seems a little low-rent. The cast does boast Kyle Chandler, Barry Pepper, Jeffrey Wright and James Ransone in supporting roles, however, which we hope means that audiences will be in for something a bit unexpected.

Watch the clips below and catch “Broken City” when it hits theaters on January 18th. [via Flicks And Bits]
