Mark Wahlberg Is "Back from the Dead" and in Hot Water in Preview Clips from Contraband
12.20.11 by BJSprecher
Five new preview clips from Mark Wahlberg's new action-thriller, Contraband, have been released online. A remake of Icelandic writer-director Óskar Jónasson's 2008 thriller Reykjavík-Rotterdam, Contraband was directed by Baltasar Kormákur, who also starred in and produced the award-winning original.
In the movie, Wahlberg plays Chris Farraday, a former smuggler who is trying hard to walk the straight and narrow path. However, when his brother-in-law (Caleb Landry Jones) runs into trouble with a drug lord (Giovanni Ribisi), Farraday is forced to run contraband in order to try to settle his debts. As detailed in the preview clips, Farraday's decision to return to crime not only lands him in hot water with the drug lord, but also with the police and with his wife (Kate Beckinsale), who fears he will end up in prison or dead, leaving her to raise their sons on her own. Ben Foster, J.K. Simmons, and Lukas Haas also star.
