In the movie trailer to the film there is scene used that is not used in the actual film where Stig (Wahlberg) tells Trench (Washington) that he was "Special Forces." Another version of the scene is used in the movie where Stig does not tell Trench who he actually is. This version may have been changed due to Stig actually being a Navy SEAL, as Special Forces applies to the Army. This scene in particular is the desert scene after their bank heist where Trench reveals to Stig that he is a DEA agent.
