Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg are bringing major firepower with a side of comedy in their upcoming action film, "2 Guns."
Directed by Baltasar Kormákur (2012's "Contraband"), the movie features Washington as an undercover DEA agent who works with Wahlberg's Naval Intelligence officer to rob a bank - not realizing that Wahlberg's character is undercover as well.
The deception, of course, is only discovered after the two lift $40 million.
When their superiors cut ties with them following the fiasco, the undercover duo - whose banter in the trailer hints that this is intended to be as much of a comedy as it is an action film - reluctantly end up working together as they're forced on the run.
"2 Guns," which also stars Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, James Marsden and Edward James Olmos, is slated to arrive August 2.
