Damon! Soderbergh! Exclamation marks!!! The Informant trailer debut!

source: traileraddict.com

The trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s latest flick The Informant! has debuted online, and as a tribute to the film’s energetic title punctuation, please enjoy this energetically punctuated article about the film!

The Informant! stars Matt Damon as real-life whistleblower and ADM-exec Marc Whitacre who joined forces with the FBI to unveil a price-fixing scandal that he was involved in!

The trailer is pretty funky, and is clearly directed at the Ocean’s Eleven crowd as opposed to the Bubble crowd! Check it out and let us know what you think!!!


Soderbergh began production on The Informant! in May of 2008! If this were any other director, it would be perfectly reasonable to expect about 9-15 months for a film to hit cinemas after filming! However, Soderbergh normally knocks together a film in about 3 days on a budget of $17.50, so The Informant! seems like quite an exception!

The Informant! hits Australian cinemas October 22nd, 2009. Of course, there is always the chance that Soderbergh will have another film ready before this date arrives!

And just a reminder! His previous film, The Girlfriend Experience, will receive a limited theatrical run in August. Che, his two-part Che Guevara biopic (which was filmed back in 2007) is still awaiting cinema or DVD release in Oz! BOOOO!!!!

Discuss: Is Soderbergh the flat-out ballsiest big-name director working in Hollywood today? Is he an underrated genius defying any genre? Or is he a pretentious film-snob who was lucky enough to finagle a friendship out of George Clooney?
