Watch Denzel Washington and Paula Patton in ‘2 Guns’ Trailer

'2 Guns' Theatrical PosterDenzel Washington, Paula Patton and Mark Wahlberg star in what seems like the longest trailer in history for Baltasar Kormákur‘s 2 Guns.

The film, based on a graphic novel by Steven Grant, follows Washington as a DEA agent and Wahlberg as an undercover naval intelligence officer who unknowingly investigate each other as each is stealing money from the mob.

The official film synopsis reads:

Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead an all-star cast in 2 Guns, an explosive action film that tracks two operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unique alliance: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent. For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down. When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Trench and Stigman are suddenly disavowed by their superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.

2 Guns will open in theaters on Aug 2.
