'2 Guns' Trailer: Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg Rob Bank, Fight Bad Guys (Video)

The film is directed by "Contraband" helmer Baltasar Kormákur.

Two robbers steal piles of cash from a bank, manage get away and begin to count their money -- only to both realize the other guy works for the government.

So begins the trailer of 2 Guns, a forthcoming popcorn movie featuring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as the robbers-turned-dueling-federal-agents.

And even though the two strike up a rivalry in the clip, the mood is light as explosions, car chases and gun fights ensue.

"The bank was a set up, we got to figure out whose money that was," says Washington in the clip. "What, like, we're working together?" responds Walhberg. And a buddy cop team is born. 

The film's director, Baltasar Kormákur,  previously worked with Wahlberg on last January's Contraband, which grossed over $65 million in U.S. theaters.

2 Guns is scheduled to arrive on screens August 2.
