Bryan Cranston may be currently butting heads with James Franco in comedy Why Him? but earlier in 2016 he played a very different role in The Infiltrator, portraying Robert ‘Bob’ Mazur, a man who would go undercover in the hopes of uncovering Pablo Escabar’s criminal organisation.
Having seen favourable reviews during its cinematic run, The Infiltrator is set for its home entertainment release, with Digital Download of the film available from 9th January and the film available to own on Blu-Ray and DVD from 23rd January.
Check out the pack shot and the synopsis for the movie below.
Amidst the lavish excess of the 1980s, Robert Musella became a pivotal player for drug lords cleaning their dirty cash. He traded on mob connections, to become the confidant to scores of the international underworld and the bankers who enabled them.
However, Robert Musella was, in fact, the undercover persona of Special Agent Robert Mazur: a US customs official who went further than any before him. Laying his life on the line, he infiltrated the globe’s largest cartels and discovered just how deep into society their influence extended. Welcomed into an inner-circle of violence and corruption, Mazur found himself in the tight embrace of those he had promised to take down.
Based on the true story of a fearless undercover agent, THE INFILTRATOR is a heart-stopping account of one of history’s most elaborate stings. The operation reeled in key players in a chain stretching all the way to Escobar. Their arrests would lead to the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International and shake the black economy to its core .
