The Informer (2020, D: Di Stefano) S: Kinnaman, Pike, Owen, Common



Starring: Joel Kinnaman, RosamundPike, Clive Owen, Common, Ana de Armas

Honorably discharged Special Ops soldier Pete Koslow’s (Joel Kinnaman) world is turned upside-down when heis 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.
Comes out March 22nd

I saw the trailer for this during the weekend when I went to see Serenity. It's from the same distribution company Aviron Pictures.

Looks pretty good. Seems like Aviron's marketing budget is small as this and Serenity haven't really gotten much promotional support.

LOL no one watched this

I just watched it. Definitely not theatre release worthy

It was watchable but nothing original. Became a bit of a farce by the end

Because it was never released in the U.S.. in 2019. It was postponed until January 10, 2020.

This is a small film with a small marketing budget. It's not going to get much or any promotional push here. It will probably play in about 1000 theatres or less.

Looks like The Informer finally got released here in the U.S. last week. It went straight to VOD via Vertical Entertainment. That's the same company that released Jessica Chastain's latest Ava.

It's an expensive watch for being a small film that was shot in 2017. $20 rental and $25 purchase.

Vudu and others have it. It's currently the #1 rental right now on iTunes.

There is currently a glitch on Vudu for this movie. You can "own" it for $6 or "rent" it for $20.

I decided to go ahead and get it for $6 and it did work. I'll watch it at some point.

Saw this on Netflix.

I really liked it. Some good acting, solid cast, and plot was interesting.

I also have a strange attraction to Rosamund Pike
