Mark Wahlberg didn’t have a great 2017 finding himself the worst value film star after a number of his films flopped. His new film, Mile 22 , could change all that. Though the film is not out for a couple of months the film makers are so confident with the Mile 22 trailer that plans are apparently under way for a sequel. That seems like tempting fate but, hey! what do we know…..
The Mile 22 trailer is a pretty brutal affair with an elite American intelligence officer, aided by a top-secret tactical command unit, trying to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of the country.
Co written by debut feature writer Lea Carpenter and experienced TV series scripter Graham Walker the Mile 22 trailer also has Lauren Cohan, Ronda Rousey, Iko Uwais and John Malkovich co-starring in the film.
Ronda Rousey is the female MMA fighter and frankly the sort of woman who would be terrifying to be in a relationship and then break up with. Likewise Iko Uwais who starred in the phenomenal The Raid films. The fight scenes in The Raid have proved so difficult to replicate that the rumoured Hollywood remake has stalled several times although it seems that Frank Grillo may well be in training to star. And then there there’s John Malkovich…..a respected actor whose career choice of movies has been eclectic to say the least (Con Air, Zoolander 2, Jonah Hex, Penguins of Madagasar) although this will be second time that he has worked with Berg and Wahlberg having made Deepwater Horizon with them previously.
Mile 22 is released in the US on 3rd August 2018 and in the UK on 27th August.
Here’s the Mile 22 trailer…..
