Mile 22 Trailer

The Plan Goes Awry in Final “Mile 22” Trailer

Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg have quite the history.  From 2013’s Lone Survivor to 2016’s Deepwater Horizon and Patriots Day, the duo have created a series of intense thrillers that have entertained audiences while pulling inspiration from profound true events.

In 2018 they will venture away from the true story sub-genre with the original Mile 22.

The film, which just got a final trailer, sees Wahlberg as James Silver, a CIA operative who serves as part of the most highly prized unit with the agency.  After them there is no backup plan, no second option.  They protect their country without the need for recognition, tackling the most dangerous of missions.

Today, they have been tasked with transporting someone who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction.  But in these films nothing ever goes according to plan.  And though the trailer leaves little to the imagination in regard to plot points, I’m a sucker for hardcore action films - so needless to say, I’m looking forward to this one.

Co-starring The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan, Iko Uwais, Ronda Rousey and John Malkovich, Mile 22 hits theaters on August 17.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
