In theaters January 18, Broken City stars Wahlberg as Billy Taggart, an ex-cop barely making ends meet as a private detective. When the mayor (played by Crowe) offers an opportunity to regain his badge and gun, he jumps at the chance. Billy is tasked to spy on the mayor's wife (played by Zeta-Jones), whom he thinks is having an affair that could interfere with his chances for re-election. But when a key player is murdered, Billy realizes he's been double-crossed – and ignites a war with the corrupt politician.
