Super Bowl XLVII takes place in the States tonight, which means TV audiences will get a sneak peek at some of Hollywood’s upcoming movie offerings, with the studios paying out around $4 million per 30-second slot to advertise their wares for the coming blockbuster season.
We’ve already posted the TV spot for the Brad Pitt zombie epic World War Z (which you can view here) and now we have a look at the action thriller Snitch, which stars Dwayne Johnson, who looks set for a big year with the release of this alongside G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Fast and Furious 6, Pain & Gain and Empire State. Guess that explains why he’s the WWE Champion again…
“In the fast-paced action thriller SNITCH, Dwayne Johnson stars as a father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime and is looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 years. Desperate and determined to rescue his son at all costs, he makes a deal with the U.S. attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a drug cartel on a dangerous mission – risking everything, including his family and his own life.“
Snitch is directed by Ric Roman Waugh, and also stars Barry Pepper, Jon Bernthal, Michael K. Williams, Melina Kanakaredes, David Harbour, Nadine Velazquez, Rafi Gavron, Benjamin Bratt and Susan Sarandon. The film is due for release in North America on February 22nd.
