After teasing us with a leaked red band long ago, Senator Entertainment has finally gotten around to releasing an official 'unrated' trailer for The Informers and it looks pretty impressive.
The Informers Red Band
Easton Ellis adapts his own acclaimed novel for the screen, returning to the Los Angeles of the early 1980's with a multi-strand narrative that deftly balances a vast array of characters who represent both the top of the heap (a Hollywood dream merchant, a dissolute rock star, an aging newscaster) and the bottom (a voyeuristic doorman, an amoral ex-con). Connecting all his intertwining strands are the quintessential Ellis protagonists—a group of beautiful, blonde young men and women who sleep all day and party all night, doing drugs—and one another—with abandon, never realizing that they are dancing on the edge of a volcano. Filmed with uncommon glamour and grit by acclaimed Australian director Gregor Jordan, The Informers is an alternately blistering and chilling portrait of hedonism run amuck.
I'm having a hard time deciding what it is about The Informers trailer that makes it so cool. The look? The ensemble cast? The 80s music? Check out the trailer (via TrailerAddict) and poster below:
