Contraband is remake of “Reykjavík Rotterdam” – Mark Wahlberg features as Embattled Guard

A security guard with financial troubles considers a return to his smuggling ways when an associate offers a potentially lucrative opportunity.

Iceland’s most successful director and top actor, Baltasar Kormákur, is launching the Hollywood movie, Contraband. The movie is a remake of a popular Icelandic movie called Reykjavík – Rotterdam. This is Baltasar’s first serious foray into Hollywood and he’s quite happy with the trailer reaching 5 million hits on youtube so fast: “I’ve of course only done movies at home [Iceland] and there’s like fifty people that watch the trailer and you are super happy you know.”
