'Broken City' Second Trailer: Russell Crowe and Mark Wahlberg Clash
The premise for the film is familiar in that it’s a genre picture. Wahlberg plays a cop hired by the mayor (Crowe) to see if the mayor’s wife (Zeta-Jones) is having an affair, but that’s just where things get interesting. Fighting against corruption, Wahlberg must become the lone wolf who finds redemption and the truth in his pursuit to get out from under Crowe’s thumb. This comes from director Allen Hughes, who knows his way around genre. (ScreenCrave)

Anne Hathaway 'specific' about movie shoes
Paco (Delgado, costume designer) explained it wasn't just the women who were challenging to find shoes for. Hugh Jackman had a strange costume request for "wooden clogs" that he insisted he wore on set.
"Hugh Jackman [playing Jean Valjean] had a combat leather boot look and very rough espadrilles. He also wanted to wear wooden clogs," Paco finished. "It was very difficult to walk in them, but he figured out how to do it. And for Russell Crowe [in the role of Javert] it was all boots." (Belfast Telegraph)
