Collider reader Freddy turned us on to a new promo trailer for The Whistleblower.  The film stars Rachel Weisz as a female cop from Nebraska who serves as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia but ends up exposing a United Nations cover-up of a sex trafficking scandal.  I ragged on the premise a bit when we reported Weisz’ casting in May 2009, but looking at this trailer, the film looks good.  There will be comparisons to Weisz’s role in The Constant Gardener (a role for which she earned an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress), but she’s a fantastic actress and knows how to deliver.  The film’s also got a strong supporting cast including David Strathairn, Monica Bellucci, Nikolaj Lie Kaas (Brødre), and Vanessa Redgrave.  It will be interesting to see what co-writer/director Larysa Kondracki pulls off with her first feature-length film.
