Paradise Lost Trailer

"I need to trust everyone near me, Nick." Ohh this is looking good already. An early promo teaser trailer has debuted for Andrea Di Stefano's Paradise Lost, starring Benicio Del Toro as infamous drug lord Pablo Escobar of Colombia. The story involves a surfer, played by the wide-eyed Josh Hutcherson, visiting his brother in Colombia who discovers that his uncle is actually Escobar. Things get a bit tricky as he falls for a local Colombian girl. This looks like another slimy drug cartel movie that will make for edge-of-your-seat cinematic entertainment, but is there more to it? The teaser is only 30 seconds but gives us a solid first look.

Here's the very first teaser trailer for Andrea Di Stefano's Paradise Lost, found via The Film Stage:

Paradise Lost marks the feature directorial and writing debut of actor Andrea di Stefano (Nine, Eat Pray Love). Young surfer Nick (Josh Hutcherson) thinks all his dreams have come true when he goes to visit his brother in Columbia. Against an idyllic backdrop of blue lagoons and white beaches he falls madly in love with a beautiful Colombian girl named Maria (Claudia Traisac). It all seems perfect until he meets her uncle, one Pablo Escobar (Benicio del Toro). The film is currently in post-production and has been waiting for a release since last year, but no date has been announced just yet. Stay tuned for more. First impressions?

I think the trailer is great! I'm really looking forward to the head games it seems Benicio's and Josh's characters are playing here. When is it coming out in the US?
