Mark Wahlberg gets angry and vengeful in the trailer for ‘Contraband’

Mark Wahlberg is set to turn into Liam Neeson’s character in Taken in director Baltasar Kormakur’s revenge thriller Contraband, and the trailer doesn’t look too bad. The story has been done a zillion times, but Wahlberg has a charisma about him which just pull off the lead character and make him interesting. Kate Beckinsale plays his wife which is always a bonus,  and the great and underrated Giovanni Ribisi plays the main bad guy.

The film does look an awful lot like Taken and many other revenge thrillers, and you can expect to see it in UK cinemas from 16th March 2012.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
