    The trailer for Mark Wahlberg's new action thriller is here, and, well, it ain't "The Fighter."

    "Contraband," a remake of the Icelandic thriller "Reykjavík-Rotterdam," stars Wahlberg as an ex-smuggler gone straight who gets pulled back into the game when his brother-in-law mucks up a drop and finds himself in the mob's cross-hairs.

    It all looks fairly generic, but the cast is great--Kate Beckinsale (with blonde hair she looks exactly like Monica Potter, no?), Ben Foster, Giovanni Ribisi, Lukas Haas, Caleb Landry Jones, Diego Luna and J.K. Simmons--and it's directed by Baltasar Kormákur, who starred in the original film.

    "Contraband" opens Jan. 13, 2012.
