20th Century Fox has released four clips from director Allen Hughes’ (The Book of Eli) upcoming political thriller Broken City. The film stars Mark Wahlberg as a private detective who is hired to identify the lover of a powerful politician’s wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones), with Russell Crowe playing the shady politician. Wahlberg and Crowe look to be having a lot of fun with the roles, so hopefully the full film delivers.
Hit the jump to watch the clips. The film also stars Jeffrey Wright. Broken City opens on January 18th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Broken City:
In a broken city rife with injustice, ex-cop Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) seeks redemption–and revenge–after being double-crossed and then framed by its most powerful figure, the mayor (Russell Crowe). Billy’s relentless pursuit of justice, matched only by his streetwise toughness, makes him an unstoppable force–and the mayor’s worst nightmare.
