The first trailer for Allen Hughes‘ thriller Broken City has arrived online. Mark Wahlberg plays a cop-turned-P.I. who is hired by the Mayor played by Russell Crowe to find out if his wife is having an affair. After confirming she is cheating, she ends up dead, and the P.I. is drawn into an intense political conspiracy. The thriller also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Barry Pepper and Kyle Chandler.
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.
