STX Entertainment has released the new trailer for Mile 22, starring Mark Wahlberg in a reunion with Deepwater Horizonand Lone Survivor director Peter Berg, and this film certainly deviates from the project’s plan a few years ago. That was the point in time where Hollywood was starting to question Ronda Rousey’s ability to carry a feature film, and as a result, her role was downsized considerably from what would have been a star vehicle for her.
As the trailer shows, Mile 22 now revolves around Wahlberg leading a group of CIA ghost operatives, and Rousey is a part of the team. Unfortunately, it’s hard to see how much of a role she plays — she has one line in the trailer, and most of her visible moments are spent shoving magazines into semi-automatic weapons. Meanwhile, Wahlberg launches into full-on action mode.
Mile 22 will arrive in theaters on August 3.
