THE INFILTRATOR Trailer: Bryan Cranston Goes Undercover to Bust Drug Dealers
Here's the second trailer for the new drug thriller The Infiltrator, which stars Bryan Cranston as an undercover agent who attempts to take down cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar. I like this trailer a little more than the first one, because it seems better edited and faster-paced. This is a true story that's been told many, many times already, but as is often the case in genre movies, it all comes down to the execution. We'll see if director Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) can elevate the final movie above its familiar setting.
Cranston, John Leguizamo, Benjamin Bratt, Diane Kruger, Amy Ryan, and Joseph Gilgun (who plays Cassidy on AMC's Preacher) all star, and The Infiltrator hits theaters on July 15, 2016.
Based on a true story, Federal agent ROBERT "BOB" MAZUR (Bryan Cranston) goes deep undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar's drug trafficking scene plaguing the nation in 1986 by posing as slick, money-laundering businessman Bob Musella. Teamed with impulsive and streetwise fellow agent EMIR ABREU (John Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé KATHY ERTZ (Diane Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar's top lieutenant ROBERTO ALCAINO (Benjamin Bratt). Navigating a vicious criminal network in which the slightest slip-up could cost him his life, Mazur risks it all building a case that leads to indictments of 85 drug lords and the corrupt bankers who cleaned their dirty money, along with the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, one of the largest money-laundering banks in the world.
