'The Informers': Flashy '80s Trailer of the Day

Posted on

My first thought upon viewing the NSFW clip below was, Wow, the Lily Van Der Woodsen-based Gossip Girl spin-off (as reported by EW.com’s Hollywood Insider) sure did get a sneak preview up fast! But it’s actually the new trailer for Bret Easton Ellis’ The Informers, just in time for Sundance. The film marks Brad Renfro’s final role — he died of a drug overdose about a month after shooting ended. (And, again, there’s some nudity in this unrated trailer — also featuring Billy Bob Thornton, Kim Basinger, and Mickey Rourke — so watch with caution.)

Actually? Still not convinced this has nothing to do with Gossip Girl.
