Denzel Washington And Mark Wahlberg Whip Out Their Badges In New Trailer For 2 Guns!

Did someone say Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in a bromantic cop, action flick?

Count us in!

In the new trailer for the film adaptation of 2 Guns, we see the two take on the roles of a couple of bank robbers who just pulled off a HUGE heist! Well, sort of.

Denzel and Dirk Diggler are actually both undercover cops who have unknowingly been pitted against each other and when they find out the money they stole belonged to a mob boss, played by Edward James Olmos, they have to find a way to pay him back!

Ch-ch-check out the awesome trailer (above)!

From what we can tell, this movie has just the balance of laughs and action for a perfect summer blockbuster! And a little bit of Jack White and The Dead Weather rocking in the background never hurt anyone!

With this AND Kick Ass 2 hitting theaters in August, it looks like it's going to be a great summer!

So very sad.

As more details regarding the unthinkable tragedy that took the lives of Jenni Rivera and six other unfortunate souls, the Mexican-American singer's friends, family, colleagues, and fans are coming to a few sobering realizations.

The 43 year-old banda beauty should be gearing up right now up to promote Filly Brown — her film debut that hits theaters this Spring — but the surviving cast and crew is instead left with unanswerable questions and unspeakable sadness.

They will surely walk the red carpet of the premiere with a heavy-heart due to the absence of their friend and colleague.

Oscar-nominated actor Edward James Olmos said this about his co-star:

Legendary high school math teacher Jaime Escalante, whose inspiring story was told in the film Stand and Deliver, passed away on Tuesday afternoon after a long battle with cancer.

So sad.

"He did so much for so many people. And he did it with such grace and dignity," said actor Edward James Olmos, who played Escalante in the 1988 film.

The 79-year-old teacher was responsible for transforming the math program in Garfield High School into one of the top rated programs in the country.

He is survived by his wife, Fabiola, two children and six grandchildren.

There's no doubt Escalante's contributions to education will live on for generations to come.
