Gringo Red Band Trailer (2018)
Red band trailer for Gringo, starring David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron and Joel Edgerton.
Mild-mannered pharmaceutical company executive Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) takes a business trip from Chicago to Mexico with his cutthroat bosses Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Elaine (Charlize Theron). At the company's Mexican lab, Richard orders manager Sanchez (Hernan Mendoza) to stop selling the bioengineered marijuana product Cannabax to a brutal, Beatles-loving cartel kingpin known as The Black Panther. Meanwhile, straight-arrow Harold learns he’ll be out of a job as soon as Richard and Elaine sell their newly cleaned-up company to a conglomerate. And when he turns to his wife Bonnie (Thandie Newton) back home for comfort, she confesses via Skype that she's having an affair.
Targeted by the ruthless Black Panther, who hopes to gain access to the Cannabax formula, Harold disappears before his bosses return to Chicago. A few hours later they receive a call informing them he's been kidnapped, and his captors are demanding a $5 million ransom. Rather than pay, Richard dispatches his mercenary-turned-humanitarian brother Mitch (Sharlto Copley) to extract Harold. But even with some temporary assistance from warmhearted American tourist Sunny (Amanda Seyfried) and her drug-mule boyfriend Miles (Harry Treadaway), Harold's prospects for survival grow dimmer by the minute.
Pursued by an army of attackers, Harold crosses the line from mild-mannered citizen to wanted criminal. But is he out of his depth? Or two steps ahead? An action-comedy roller-coaster ride brimming with black humor, white-knuckle car chases and double-dealing, Gringo takes the concept of adventure travel to a whole new level.
Gringo represents the second time that Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried shared the silver screen together. The first time? In Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West.
With a cast as strong as this, it is mindblowing that the red band trailer for Gringo is the first we've heard of this film.
When it comes to the premise, the verdict is still out. But, holy crap do we love the look Sharlto Copley as a mercinary-type character.
