'The Informer' trailer: Joel Kinnaman plays a convict-turned-FBI-informant in new thriller out in March
The action-packed film follows Kinnaman as he tries to escape the clutches of three of New York City's most powerful organizations — the mob, the NYPD and the FBI
'The Informer' trailer is out and shows Joel Kinnaman, an ex-convict turned FBI informant, caught in a world of impossible choices, as he plans 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.
Here's the official synopsis: 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.
In the trailer, all the key players of the film are introduced and we are transported to the zone Koslow is caught in as he goes back to prison to infiltrate the mob.
Aviron currently has 'The Informer' scheduled to open in nationwide theaters on March 22, 2019, which is a change from its previous February 1 launch date.
