Mark Wahlberg and The Rock must have really bonded on the set of Pain & Gain, as they both seem to be making the exact same movies. Wahlberg had Broken City early this year and now The Rock has his own NYC crime thriller coming to DVD and Blu Ray with “Empire State”. The Rock co-stars with Liam Hemsworth as an NYPD detective in the 80’s investigating an armored car robbery that Hemsworth is a victim of. One of his co-workers is killed in the robbery and Hemsworth feels the payment to the family is not enough, so he conspires to rob the company. It looks like standard thriller stuff but hopefully it will be a little bit more exciting and action filled than say, Snitch. It’s out on September 3rd and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
