Amazon Studios' Gringo

Amazon Studios has released a trailer for Gringo, an upcoming movie starring David Oyelowo (Selma, The Butler), Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road, Atomic Blonde), Joel Edgerton (Bright, Black Mass), Amanda Seyfried (Les Misérables, Mean Girls), Sharlto Copley (District 9, The A-Team), Hernán Mendoza (After Lucia, The Perfect Dictatorship), Thandie Newton (Westworld, Crash), Harry Treadaway (Honeymoon, The Lone Ranger), Alan Ruck (Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, Speed), and Kenneth Choi (The Wolf of Wall Street, Spider-Man: Homecoming). The film is directed by Joel’s brother Nash Edgerton (The Square), and written by Anthony Tambakis (Warrior, Jane Got A Gun) and Matthew Stone (Life, Intolerable Cruelty).

Gringo follows a pharmaceutical executive who’s sent on a business trip to Mexico. Things do not go well. Not at all. You can find a full synopsis for the movie and watch one of two (or both!) trailers below.

SYNOPSIS:

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 (Hernán 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.

Directed by Nash Edgerton, who made his feature-length directorial debut with the acclaimed Australian thriller The Square, Gringo is written by Anthony Tambakis and Matthew Stone and produced by Rebecca Yeldham, Nash Edgerton, Beth Kono, A.J. Dix, Theron and Tambakis.

Both a red band trailer and a green band trailer (it is Christmastime, after all) have been released. So if you’re at work or have tiny humans running around, mingle with that green band. If the coast is clear, embrace the red.

Gringo will be released in theaters on March 9th.

Trailers


An exhilarating mix of dark comedy, white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, Gringo joyrides into Mexico, where mild-mannered businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) finds himself at the mercy of his back-stabbing business colleagues back home, local drug lords and a morally conflicted black-ops mercenary. Crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal, Harold battles to survive his increasingly dangerous situation in ways that raise the question: Is he out of his depth — or two steps ahead?
