Trailer For 'Contraband' Starring Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale

The Collider:
The trailer for Contraband has gone online and I have no idea what differentiates it from other Mark Wahlberg crime movies. He’s either a cop or a good-guy criminal and in this movie he’s the latter. He plays a former smuggler who’s called back into the game when his brother-in-law (X-Men: First Class‘ Caleb Landry Jones) steals from the wrong gangster (Giovanni Ribisi with a bizarre, distracting accent). Wahlberg then puts together a team of crooks (including characters played by Ben Foster and Lukas Haas) and it looks a little like The Italian Job with smuggling and cool duct tape masks. Hopefully, the film will have something to make it stand apart from other movies where Wahlberg plays a frantic, hard-nosed character.

I think Mark Wahlberg plays the same character in with a different storyline in each movie.

Just now catching onto that are you? ;)

I'll take any opportunity to watch Kate Beckinsale though :D

They actually showed this preview at the movies the other day. I thought it was kind of strange and early for that. You are right though about him playing the same character except for maybe The Departed.
