The first trailer has arrived for Netflix’s action-comedy Spenser Confidential. Mark Wahlberg leads the cast in the movie that reunites him with director Peter Berg for the fifth time. In case you can’t be bothered to go to IMDB, Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, Patriots Day, Mile 22, and now Spenser Confidential. Here’s the official synopsis;
Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) — an ex-cop better known for making trouble than solving it — just got out of prison and is leaving Boston for good. But first he gets roped into helping his old boxing coach and mentor, Henry (Alan Arkin), with a promising amateur. That’s Hawk (Winston Duke), a brash, no-nonsense MMA fighter convinced he’ll be a tougher opponent than Spenser ever was. When two of Spenser’s former colleagues turn up murdered, he recruits Hawk and his foul-mouthed ex-girlfriend, Cissy (Iliza Shlesinger), to help him investigate and bring the culprits to justice. From director Peter Berg, SPENSER CONFIDENTIAL is an action-comedy co-starring Bokeem Woodbine, Marc Maron and Post Malone. Inspired by Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland, a best-selling novel by Ace Atkins.
Netflix is enjoying a good year for its original films, The Irishman, Marriage Story, and animated film Klaus all have notched up Academy Award nominations. Could we finally be turning a corner with the streaming service’s original movies? Only time will tell, but what we know for sure is that Spenser Confidential will be available worldwide on March 6.
