Universal Pictures has released six clips from the upcoming action film, 2 GunsDenzel 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.  Speaking to Steve at CinemaCon, director Baltasar Kormakur said it’s a “pulpy comic adaptation that’s ‘probably closer to 48 Hrs. than Bad Boys.‘”  Kormakur also says that there’s less action than in his previous film, Contraband, but “hopefully there is more fun in the action than necessarily big explosions.”  I’m not watching these clips since I’m seeing the movie tomorrow, but I liked what I saw from the trailer.

Hit the jump to check out the clips.  The film also stars Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Fred Ward, James Marsden, and Edward James Olmos2 Guns opens August 2nd.

Here’s the official synopsis for 2 Guns:

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.
