“Failure is NOT an option!”
That’s what Mark Wahlberg’s character James Silva tells his team of CIA operatives as they set out on their dangerous and deadly mission in Mile 22. A new red band trailer was released for the film by STX, and things get pretty violent!
This new trailer has it all – crazy shootouts, impressive martial arts stunts, and a lot more Lauren Cohan than the first trailer gave us! Check it out:
In the film, Wahlberg plays CIA operative James Silva who, along with a top-secret tactical command team, has been tasked with retrieving and transporting an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in on them.
In addition to Wahlberg and Cohan, the film also stars Iko Uwais, Ronda Rousey, and John Malkovich. Producers are Peter Berg, Mark Wahlberg, and Stephen Levinson and the script is written by Graham Roland and Lea Carpenter.
Mile 22 is just the start of a much bigger universe that’s being planned. It was recently reported that, before this first film has even had a chance to hit theaters, a sequel film is already in the works with Black List writer Umair Aleem on board to write the script. STX has big plans to turn Mile 22 into a cross-platform franchise spanning from not only the big screen but also into television and even the virtual reality realm as well. It will be interesting to see how this franchise begins to unfold when Mile 22 hits theaters on August 3, 2018.
