Two undercover operatives. Two competing departments. One big bust. For the past year, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Denzel Washington) and U.S. Naval Intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Mark Wahlberg) have been tracking the same drug cartel in hopes of bringing down the organization and recovering millions in stolen assets. Both men have come dangerously close to success, but when their efforts suddenly go south, each of them finds himself disavowed by his bureau and scrambling to survive. But there’s a twist—neither knows that the other is an undercover agent!
On the run and forced to partner together, the two distrust each other as much as the criminals they have been hunting. For months they had been investigating each other on suspicion of stealing money from the mob, but now that it appears that the mob has set them up, they must set aside their differences if they want to survive. Onetime enemies Bobby and Stig realize that the only person they can count on is the other. As the clock winds down, the two men of the law must turn to some less-than-lawful skills acquired on the job if they hope to stay out of jail—and the grave.
Written by Blake Masters and directed by Baltasar Kormakur, 2 Guns is set for release on August 16, 2013. This Universal Pictures action crime thriller also stars Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Edward James Olmos, and James Marsden.
