Summer 2013 has seen two good buddy-cop-style movies with White House Down and The Heat, and hopefully it has one more with 2 Guns. Denzel Washington plays a DEA agent who reluctantly teams up with a U.S. naval intelligence officer (Mark Wahlberg) to infiltrate and bring down a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions of dollars. Washington and Wahlberg seem like an odd pairing, but judging by the trailer, they’ve got some good chemistry and a unique dynamic that could be a lot of fun.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 10 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of 2 Guns. The film also stars Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Fred Ward, James Marsden, and Edward James Olmos. 2 Guns opens August 2nd.
To enter for a chance to win 2 admit-one passes, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “2 GUNS”. The screening is on Tuesday, July 30th at 7:00PM at Regal Atlantic Station, so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Please note that a pass is not a ticket. To guarantee a seat, please arrive at the theater early since seating is first come, first serve.
Here’s the trailer:
And here’s the official synopsis:
Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead an all-star cast in 2 Guns, an explosive action film that tracks two operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unique alliance: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent. For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down. When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Trench and Stigman are suddenly disavowed by their superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.
