2 Guns Synopsis
Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead an all-star cast in 2 Guns, an explosive action film that tracks two operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unique alliance: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent.

For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down.

When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Trench and Stigman are suddenly disavowed by their superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.

The crawl begins as a begrudging reunion of a bunch of men who are no longer friendly, but when Nick Frost, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright are involved, fans are in for something a little spookier and more spectacular. In this case, as the night wears on, the former friends determine there is something more sinister afoot.

Weekend Box Office: 2 Guns Locks Down Number 1, Smurfs 2 Debut Not So Smurfy Weekend Box Office: 2 Guns Locks Down Number 1, Smurfs 2 Debut Not So Smurfy
Sequels have had a hit and miss summer, but this weekend was a major miss for certain little, blue, computer-animated mushroom dwellers. The Smurfs 2 debuted in third place with just $18 million, little more than half what the first Smurf feature earned when it opened two years ago.

2 Guns Overtakes The Wolverine For #1 At Friday Box Office 2 Guns Overtakes The Wolverine For #1 At Friday Box Office
2 Guns, a movie that seems completely indistinguishable from a million other mismatched buddy cop movies, has at least convinced a solid number of moviegoers that it's something worth seeing. According to early numbers at Deadline the Mark Wahlberg-Denzel Washington vehicle brought in $9.8 million on Friday, good enough for first place at that day's box office and for the weekend in general, which should have it bringing in around $27 million

2 Guns Red-Band Trailer: Wait, This Movie Is Actually Funny? 2 Guns Red-Band Trailer: Wait, This Movie Is Actually Funny?
Last night Mark Wahlberg showed up on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and surprised the hell out of me by talking up the comedy of 2 Guns. Wahlberg had the biggest hit of his career last summer with Ted, and he was showing up on a comedian-friendly late night show, so the topic made sense, but nothing I had seen from 2 Guns suggested the slightest possibility of being funny. Now here comes this red-band trailer, via IGN, which actually backs Wahlberg up

This Rotten Week: Predicting 2 Guns And The Smurfs 2 Reviews This Rotten Week: Predicting 2 Guns And The Smurfs 2 Reviews
As we get into the dog days of summer the movie landscape starts getting a little sparse, with a few tumbleweeds drifting across the view. Many of the big names have already hit the big screen. And though there are a few more anticipated movies coming down the pike, every week can’t be a blockbuster. This is one them. We’ve got a couple of guns and little blue things to talk about

Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington Bring Back Buddy-Cop Fun In 2 Guns Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington Bring Back Buddy-Cop Fun In 2 Guns
The first official trailer for 2 Guns confirms what you probably already assumed about the shoot-them-up buddy-crime thriller. Charismatic Mark Wahlberg and smooth-as-silk Denzel Washington make a tremendous pair, and audiences likely will happily line up and fork over their $15 to watch these two in just about ANYTHING.

The movie will be adapted from a Steven Grant graphic novel. His story casts Wahlberg and Washington as an undercover DEA agent and a Naval intelligence officer, respectively, who plot to steal from a mob-controlled bank (without realizing that they’re both being manipulated by the Mafia behind the scenes).

Fred Ward Joins Denzel Washington And Mark Walhberg In 2 Guns Fred Ward Joins Denzel Washington And Mark Walhberg In 2 Guns
Based on Steven Grant's comic book, 2 Guns is an upcoming action movie starring Denzel Washington and Mark Walhberg. It's fitting that the two actors are finally making a film together since they've kind of become kings of the generic thriller, with this year's Contraband and Safe House serving as perfect examples.

Adapted for the screen by Blake Masters (Rubicon), 2 Guns is about a pair of undercover investigators, Wahlberg a Navy SEAL and Washington's DEA agent, who find themselves working on the same heist while completely unaware of the other's operation. They think they are stealing $50 million dollars from the mob but, after some predictable backstabbing, it turns out the money actually belongs to the CIA.

Paula Patton Will Reteam With Denzel Washington In 2 Guns Paula Patton Will Reteam With Denzel Washington In 2 Guns
As the strong and stunning leading lady of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Paula Patton showed audiences worldwide that she could kick some major ass—even out of a building if need be. She was sleek and believable as a secret agent, and proved a good match opposite such serious star power as Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner. So it's little wonder that's she has been offered a role in Universal's heist thriller 2 Guns opposite Denzel Washington.

Mark Wahlberg Wants To Replace David O. Russell On 2 Guns With His Contraband Director Mark Wahlberg Wants To Replace David O. Russell On 2 Guns With His Contraband Director
You may not be surprised to learn that the movie won't be all that different from Contraband-- the plot reported by Variety involves "a DEA agent and an undercover naval intelligence officer who unwittingly investigate each other as each steals mob money." As a matter of fact, it sounds a lot more like The Departed and the film it was based on, Infernal Affairs
