The Informers Trailer

Wow - I'm definitely impressed. Senator Entertainment has sent over a brand new red band trailer for Gregor Jordan's adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' The Informers. It looks like one hell of a funky, fun, and trippy film set in 1983 Los Angeles about movie executives, rock stars, a vampire, and other quirky characters. I've even heard that the gorgeous Amber Heard is naked throughout the most of film. In addition to her, Billy Bob Thornton, Mickey Rourke, Rhys Ifans, Kim Basinger, and Winona Ryder also all star. Potentially an indie gem? Definitely, but that is yet to be seen, as this premieres at Sundance next week.

Watch the red band trailer for The Informers:

The Informers is directed Australian filmmaker Gregor Jordan, of Two Hands, Buffalo Soldiers, and Ned Kelly previously. The film is based on Bret Easton Ellis' novel of the same name and was adapted by Ellis himself as well as newcomer Nicholas Jarecki. This will be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in just a few weeks, so look forward to some buzz and reviews soon. The Informers hits theaters in New York and Los Angeles on April 10th before expanding to more cities throughout the month. Interested?

    Amber Heard would be a much bigger star if All The Boys Love Mandy Lane would have been release here in North America....then the Informers would have much more buzz from her nude scenes....I'm a Bret Easton Ellis addict and every movie based on his work has impressed me....I also feel a bit of sorrow for Brad Renfro it being his last movie and not having a bigger credit....I really hope the Oscars develop some class this year and add him the to remembrance reel...I wasn't able to watch the Oscars last year but I heard his name was absent

    Best trailer music ever.

    @ #3 - Seriously! Sorry, but anyone know the name of the song in the middle?
  • Matthew
    @4 - It should be (Flock of Seagulls - Ran) As for the movie, I feel that if you do a proper late 80, early 90 movie with all the correct themes that were pervasive back then, such as drugs, sex, self loathing etc.. you get something amazing. American Psycho with Bale and this will defintely prove it. BTW, Mickey looks like he'll play an awesome part in this somehow, along with Kim... damn this is a sick movie.

    Isn't this a remake? Didn't one of the Baldwin brothers do a remake of this movie? Like back in the 90's I think.
  • Aequitas
    Didnt manage to get tickets for this yet, maybe ill go to the box office early and pray to get lucky. :) Another great movie to watch for sundance..
  • C Dot
    wow imdb gave it a 9.6 out of 10....now i want to watch this terribly. Mickey Rourke bringin it back in a major way yo
  • Collin
    Definitely has the American Psycho feel. It's in the way people talk, like in the Talented Mr. Ripley. It's always kind of annoying at first. Still think it looks pretty good though.
  • Redstrine
    Looks good. and Amber Heard nude is def. a selling point for me.
  • 9mm
    good trailer. ..and by "good trailer" i mean, nice boobs.!
  • Adam
    #11 we call them tittays here. this movie looks really interesting. it may be the 13 year old goth girl inside of me, but it seems really interesting that theres apparently a fucking vampire in there. still though, i don't really know what happened in the trailer - it was just like "shit is happening! woah! 80s! tittays!" - none of which is really indicative of the plot. Still, it was flashy and I like flashy things.

    for no.12 lol, its nice that u corrected him
  • Ross
    Brett Easton Ellis's books contributed heavily through my adolesence to my education and the way my mind is shaped. I love them. I love 'The Informer's, i've read it 4 times...i'm really excited for this movie!
  • ummm
    I thought Brad Renfro died 2 or 3 years ago.
  • Kara(Ross`s sister)
    My brother made me read his books i feel in love with it he educated me too. It looks amazing! Cannot wait to appreciate the true genius of Bret Eaton Ellis and Nicholas Jarecki. Xxx

    Brad Renfro died sometime late Fall/early winter of 2007. Remember the big deal last year when they didn't show his picture at the Oscars when they do the segment of people in the industry that died that year? Anyway, that clip has the feel that the piece of shit film "Less Than Zero" should have had. They ruined that movie. Great book. Hope they don't do the same with this. Don't know who did the song in the middle of the trailer, but the first song was "Simple Minds".
  • Matt
    I recommend you read the book! It's so twisted, this movie is looking like it stays pretty true to it, so I'm expecting some SHOCKING stuff here! And if they can get away with The Informers, I better be seeing Glamorama adapted as well. I can't wait.
  • LW
    Looks like a more, less-radical subtext of 'American Psycho' about the 80s.
  • moviedude
    I work for the company that is putting the remembrance reel together and Brad Renfro is on it...

    Wow...if that many A list actors said this was something they needed to be a part of than it must have something special. That poster kicks ass too.
  • Florian
    So this really is Brad Renfro's last movie huh...
  • Jimbo Slims
    Amazing how the main actor looks like he's taken directly out of the '80's. Nice to see a take on the 80's w/ out any blatant shots of cocaine snorting etc. I saw a piece on Brad Renfro - always such a tragedy for actors to die so young. Oh yeah. Almost forgot to mention this looks udderly Boobie-licious.

    Why is that poster reminding me of Nip Tuck for some reason?
  • fanboy d
    nekkidness! what happened to brandon routh?
  • http://www.aldonn.com Aldonn
    Apparently his vampire character got cut from the movie. Even though they filmed that shit, they decided to remove all the paranormal stuff. So I heard. It was everywhere when I googled this movie.
  • becca
    i FUCKING LOVE AMBER HEARD, kthanks. i only got interested in this movie solely because she's in it. but after seeing the trailer and reading the synopsis the movie itself has grown on me & now im anticipating the wait to see it all the way til the day it hits theatres.
  • namethismovie
    @23: Apparently you missed the part in the trailer where there was in fact blatant cocaine indulgence. Maybe you thought it was sugar?
  • fatrick
    i want the bryan metro song in the middle, any word on the soundtrack release date?
  • Sarah
    I loved American Psycho and the other Bret Easton Ellis movies so I'm curious and will see it.
  • Geo
    I saw this at Sundance -- Brad Renfro does an amazing job (can't believe it's his last role...) but Amber Heard was STUNNING. Really great movie, pretty dark, but, definitely gonna be one of the better flicks of 2009

    Looks good.

    can't get enough bret easton ellis.. check out the facebook page for the informers: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Informers/49636021034
  • Edienna
    Does anyone know what the first song was in the trailer? The music is gonna be soo good in this movie! i can't wait to see it!!!
  • Eric
    I can't get enough of anything relating to Bret. I knew him well when I dated his sister (name has been omitted) and spent my summers lounging at the Ellis home. He is a genuinely nice guy with a pretty strong knit family who support him through everything. I never met a cooler family and wish I hadn't done the wrong thing at the wrong time. Missing my gorgeous ex-girlfriend and can't help but think of her when I see anything her brother publishes, whether it's a movie or a book. I will always be haunted by him and her.
  • Sean
    @ 35... You're so freaking cool man. I really wanted to know about your private life. Not. Anyways, the movie looks sick! Loved American Psycho so I'm definitely gonna see this someday.
  • Marcus
    The song in the middle is: "Only You" by Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Jason Falkner, Justin Stanley & Dave Palmer
