Watch: Bryan Cranston in First Full Trailer for Thriller 'The Infiltrator'
"One wrong word, one slip and…" Broad Green Pictures has debuted the trailer for based-on-a-true-story thriller The Infiltrator, starring Bryan Cranston as DEA agent Bob Mazur, who went undercover in the 80s to infiltrate Pablo Escobar's drug trafficking ring. This also stars John Leguizamo, Diane Kruger, Benjamin Bratt and Amy Ryan. Mazur posed as a money-laundering businessman and he successfully worked his way into Escobar's drug empire for five years. This trailer explores much of the story and it looks like a fascinating inside look at how tricky it can be to safely infiltrate a drug empire. As always, Cranston is awesome to watch and this seems like it might be engaging - though the trailer ends quite abruptly. Enjoy.
Here's the first official trailer for Brad Furman's The Infiltrator, from Broad Green's YouTube:
Based on a true story, Federal agent Robert "Bob" Mazur (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 (Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé Kathy Ertz (Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant Roberto Alcaino (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. The Infiltrator is directed by Brad Furman (of The Lincoln Lawyer, Runner Runner), from a screenplay written by Ellen Sue Brown, based on Robert Mazur's book. Broad Green Pictures will release the film in theaters starting July 15th this summer.
