    It's another weekend of post-New-Year roll-outs, and this batch continues to solidify January's low-rung status in the theatrical release schedule.

    Watch: New Trailer & Pics From 'Broken City' Starring Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe & Catherine Zeta-Jones

    It's going to be a big 2013 for Mark Wahlberg, with at least three movies on the way, and possibly four (depending on where Peter Berg's "Lone Survivor" lands). But before he pumps iron in Michael Bay's "Pain & Gain," or gets set up by the mob with Denzel Washingt...

    Considering the movie comes out in about three months, Universal decided they should probably start letting people know it's happening. And thus, the marketing department has slapped together a poster that looks like it was an outtake from the photo sessions for the "Contraband" one sheet. Welcome t...
