Here’s the first trailer for Universal and Working Title’s Mark Wahlberg-starrer Contraband, an action thriller about a security guard trying to go straight who must return to his old life of high-stakes smuggling to settle a family member’s debt with a ruthless former boss. Giovanni Ribisi, Kate Beckinsale and Ben Foster co-star. The pic, based on the 2008 Icelandic film Reykjavic-Rotterdam, is set to be released January 13, 2012. Baltasar Kormakur directed the remake after starring in, producing and co-writing the original. From the looks of it, this one seems right in Wahlberg’s wheelhouse.
