Gringo — Final Trailer


added: Thu, Feb 15th '18

David Oyelowo (Selma, The Butler) will need a little help from above to survive his kidnapping ordeal in the upcoming action comedy "The Gringo," which also stars Charlize Theron, Sharlto Copley, and Joel Edgerton. Check out the film's just-released final trailer, which is set to arrive in theaters next month.

The film is directed by Joel's brother Nash Edgerton (The Square), who also is a former stuntman and partner in their Australian-produced studios Blue-Tongue Films (War Machine, Hesher, The Rover, Animal Kingdom).

Co-written by Matthew Stone (Life, Intolerable Cruelty) and Anthony Tambakis (Warrior, Suicide Squad 2), the film sees mild-mannered salesman Harold Soyinka (Oyelowo) in a simple business transaction just south of the border. Unfortunately, he gets kidnapped and held for ransom by the Mexican Cartel. But fortunately for Harold, his horrible bosses (played by Charlize Theron and Joel Edgerton) hire an eccentric mercenary (Sharlto Copley) to handle the situation for them. And things only get more complicated from there.

"Gringo" also co-stars Amanda Seyfried, Yul Vazquez, Thandie Newton, Alan Ruck, Kenneth Choi, and Paris Jackson and is set to hit theaters starting on March 9th.

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.
