TRAILER FOR ‘THE INFORMANT’ MAKES CORPORATE ESPIONAGE SOMETHING TO LAUGH ABOUT

THE INFORMANT Trailer – Watch more Movie Trailers

I normally hate movies with clueless protagonists, and this new one from Steven Soderbergh looks like it’s got a doozy.  BUT… I might be making an exception, because darned if Matt Damon‘s character, Mark Whitacre, isn’t try his best not to suck.  In The Informant, Damon plays a corporate suit who becomes – you guesed it – an informant for the FBI.  Based on a true story, the real Whitacre remains the highest level executive in U.S. history to turn into a whistleblower.

I think this one has a happier ending than that other whistleblower movie The Insider.  And I’m basing that entirely on the fact that this has an upbeat song from the Eurythmics in the trailer.  If you don’t know the Eurythmic, they’re a band from the ’80s and ’90s, which is when this movie takes place.  I’m basing that assessment entirely on the style of mustaches worn by some of the actors.  Here at Screen Junkies, we take our fact-checking seriously.
