Landing on our desk is The Informer trailer which looks pretty good. ‘Is it about an Informer?’ we hear you cry. Well we’re glad you asked.
Honorably discharged Special Ops soldier Pete Koslow’s (Joel Kinnaman) world is turned upside-down when he is jailed after a fight to protect his wife (Ana de Armas). He’s given a chance for early release by becoming an informant for the FBI (Academy Award nominees Rosamund Pike and Clive Owen) and using his covert skills in an operation to take down The General, the most powerful crime boss in New York. But when the FBI sting meant to finally earn Koslow his freedom results in the death of an undercover NYPD cop, Koslow finds himself caught in the crossfire between the mob and the FBI. The General insists Koslow takes the heat and sends him back to prison to spearhead a drug operation from inside, and the FBI affirms that going back to jail to do The General’s bidding is the only way for Koslow to keep his deal with them alive. Caught in a world of impossible choices, Koslow must return to prison, where he formulates a plan to escape the clutches of three of New York City’s most powerful organizations – the mob, the NYPD and the FBI – in order to save himself and his family.
And today’s fascinating fact is that despite The Informer trailer being a US based film the prison scenes were shot in a UK prison!
Directed by Andrea di Stefano and starring Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad), Rosamund Pike (Entebbe), Clive Owen, Common (The Hate U Give) and Ana de Armas who our Editor is has been smitten with since he saw her in Blade Runner 2049.
The film will be released in the UK and USA on MARCH 22, 2019
