We haven’t seen Mark Wahlberg on the big screen since his great turn in The Fighter at the beginning of last year.
But next month sees him switch family boxing drama for action thriller with his new movie Contraband.
The movie sees him team up with Kate Beckinsale, Giovanni Ribisi and Ben Foster while Baltasar Kormákur is in the director’s chair.
Chris Farraday (Wahlberg) long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), Chris is forced back into doing what he does best, running contraband, to settle Andy’s debt.
Chris is a legendary smuggler and quickly assembles a crew with the help of his best friend, Sebastian (Ben Foster), to head to Panama and return with millions in counterfeit bills.
Things quickly fall apart and with only hours to reach the cash, Chris must use his rusty skills to successfully navigate a treacherous criminal network of brutal drug lords, cops and hit men before his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and sons become their target.
Contraband is released 16th March.
