Universal Pictures has released six clips from the upcoming action film, 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. 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 Olmos. 2 Guns opens August 2nd.
