Apple has debuted the first trailer and poster for director Baltasar Kormákur's "2 Guns," the Universal Pictures adaptation of the crime comic by Steven Grant and Mataes Santolouco.

Published in 2007 by BOOM! Studios, "2 Guns" follows a DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer who, after unwittingly investigating each other, team up to steal money from the mob. Unfortunately they learn too late that the $50 million actually belongs to the CIA.

Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead an impressive cast that includes Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Fred Ward, James Marsden and Edward James Olmos. Watch the trailer below or in HD at Apple.com. "2 Guns" opens Aug. 2.

Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead an all-star cast in "2 Guns," an explosive action film that tracks two operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unique alliance: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent.

For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down.

When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Trench and Stigman are suddenly disavowed by their superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.
