Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad, Netflix's Altered Carbon) plays a FBI informant who finds himself stuck between a rock and a hard place in the official trailer for "The Informer."

Also starring Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), Clive Owen (Inside Man), Common (The Hate U Give), and Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), the crime thriller is based on the best-selling Swedish novel "Three Seconds" by Borge Hellstrom and Anders Roslund.

The film follows an ex-felon-turned-FBI informant (Kinnaman) as he tries to earn his freedom by infiltrating the criminal organization of a powerful New York drug lord. But when a FBI sting goes bust, resulting in the murder of an undercover cop, Kinnaman's character must go back to prison in order to maintain his cover, which winds up jeopardizing the safety of his wife and young daughter.

"The Informer" is directed by Italian actor/filmmaker Andrea Di Stefano, who previously helmed the Benicio Del Toro-starring crime drama "Escobar: Paradise Lost."

The film opens March 22, 2019. Watch the trailer, above.

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 (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.
