The Infiltrator 1

It’s not often we get an adult-geared drama in the middle of the summer tentpole season, but Broad Green will deliver just that this July. The Infiltrator stars Bryan Cranston, coming off of his Oscar nomination for Trumbo, as a Federal agent who infiltrated Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking scene back in the mid-1980’s.

Director Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) adapts the true story from Robert Mazur’s own biography, scripted by Ellen Brown Furman. The first trailer has now landed which shows off a kinetic drama, and certainly something with more energy than last fall’s dull Black Mass. Also starring Diane Kruger, John Leguizamo, Benjamin Bratt, Yul Vazquez, and Amy Ryan, check out the trailer and poster below.

Update: See the second trailer below.

Based on a true story, Federal agent ROBERT “BOB” MAZUR (Bryan 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 (John Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé KATHY ERTZ (Diane Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant ROBERTO ALCAINO (Benjamin 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.
