The first trailer has debuted for the upcoming crime thriller The Infiltrator. Directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer), the film stars Bryan Cranston (Trumbo) alongside Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), Benjamin Bratt (Special Correspondents), John Leguizamo (John Wick) and Amy Ryan (Birdman).
Based on the true story of a fearless operative, the film relates the account of one of history’s largest and most elaborate stings. Set amidst the lavish excess of the 1980’s, The Infiltrator tells the story of undercover US Customs agent Robert Mazur (Cranston) AKA Robert Musella, who became a pivotal player for drug lords cleaning their dirty cash. He traded on mob connections to become the confidant to scores of the international underworld, and the bankers who enabled them. Laying his life on the line, he infiltrated the globe’s largest cartels and discovered just how deep into society their influence extended. The operation reeled in key players in a chain stretching all the way to Escobar. Their arrests would lead to the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, and shake the underground economy to its core.
The Infiltrator opens in the US on July 15th.
