Josh Hutcherson and Benicio Del Toro in New Escobar: Paradise Lost Trailer

A new Escobar: Paradise Lost trailer has been released, showing a hell of a lot from the upcoming thriller. Josh Hutcherson plays a young surfer who meets the woman of his dreams in Colombia. Unfortunately, things get a little complicated with her uncle, notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar.

Del Toro is the perfect choice to play Escobar and it’s good to see Hutcherson outside Hunger Games. The trailer below, while showing what looks to be one too many plot developments, provides confidence in a robust thriller. We’re looking forward to checking this one out.

Starring Benicio Del Toro, Josh Hutcherson, Claudia Traisac, Brady Corbet, Carlos Bardem and Ana Girardot.

Official synopsis for Escobar: Paradise Lost:
