Watch: First Teaser Trailer for 'Paradise Lost' with Benicio Del Toro
"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:

Young surfer Nick (Josh Hutcherson) thinks all his dreams have come true when he goes to visit his brother in Columbia.

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?
