Broad Green Pictures has dropped the first trailer for The Infiltrator, starring Bryan Cranston, and it's an intense one. Also full of extreme beards and '70s hairstyles, but mostly intrepid action. Check it out:

Still not sure what it's about, other than that Bryan Cranson is going deep undercover while rocking an exceptional moustache? Here's the official synopsis:

Based on a true story, Federal agent ROBERT "BOB" MAZUR (Bryan Cranston) goes deep undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar's drug trafficking scene plaguing the nation in 1986 by posing as slick, money-laundering businessman Bob Musella. Teamed with impulsive and streetwise fellow agent EMIR ABREU (John Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé KATHY ERTZ (Diane Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar's top lieutenant ROBERTO ALCAINO (Benjamin Bratt). Navigating a vicious criminal network in which the slightest slip-up could cost him his life, Mazur risks it all building a case that leads to indictments of 85 drug lords and the corrupt bankers who cleaned their dirty money, along with the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, one of the largest money-laundering banks in the world.

Bryan Cranston is one of those actors who is a joy to watch on screen, no matter what he's in, and John Leguizamo is always criminally underrated. Plus, the ensemble cast for this one is impressive. It's too far outside awards season to be aiming for Oscar buzz, but it should be an enjoyable flick, nonetheless.

The Infiltrator is in theaters on Friday, July 13th.
