‘There are some wars you fight and some wars you walk away from... this is the fighting kind,’ says a vengeful Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) in the trailer of the upcoming crime-drama-thriller Broken City. Taggart seeks revenge and redemption from perhaps the most powerful person in the city: Mayor Nicholas Hostetler (Russell Crowe).
A proud Russell Crowe says in the trailer ‘When I was elected Mayor, this was a broken city; tell me things haven’t changed?” While in the backdrop, we see Mark Wahlberg, who plays a former NYPD cop, clearing all the vermin (criminals) from the city.
Recognizing his skills, the Mayor gives him a task to find the guy sleeping with his (Mayor’s) wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones)! Come on, that’s not what national heroes are supposed to do! Anyhow, the catch is that though Wahlberg does complete his task to perfection, he is trapped and framed by the Mayor into an unforeseen scandal; every move the former cop made was being manipulated by the cunning Mayor!
No wonder Wahlberg will have a tough time proving his innocence since he is up against the most powerful figure of the city. However, as per the trailer, Mark is not one of those guys who’ll give up easily; a mighty clash between two tough nuts awaits. Should be fun.
Broken City will reportedly release in India on January 18. Catch the trailer of the film below and some stills on the pages that follow.
