Mark Wahlberg leads the cast of the fast-paced thriller Contraband, playing a man trying to stay out of a world he worked so hard to leave be hind and the family he’ll do any thing to protect. Contraband explores the cut throat underground world of international smuggling in New Orleans. It’s a world full of desperate criminals and corrupt officials, big pay offs, where death is one wrong turn away. Chris Farraday (Wahlberg) long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), Chris is forced back in to doing what he does best—running contraband—to settle Andy’s debt. Chris quickly assembles a crew with the help of his best friend, Sebastian (Ben Foster), but things quickly fall apart, leaving Chris to use his rusty skills to successfully navigate a dangerous criminal network of brutal drug lords, cops and hit men before his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and sons become their target.
Contraband hits theaters on January 13th, 2012.
