Watch: Josh Hutcherson Finds Love & Drugs in 'Paradise Lost' Trailer
We've already gotten a taste of the romantic thriller Paradise Lost with some trailers that surfaced while the film was making the rounds at various film festivals, but now it's poised for release in the United States, and we get an all-new trailer. Josh Hutcherson plays a young surfer who falls in love with a Colombian woman who just happens to be the niece of Pablo Escobar (Benicio del Toro), one of the most notorious drug kingpins of all-time. But being part of a family in this dangerous business just might prove to be too much for him to handle. This certainly looks interesting, but a January release feels sketchy. Watch below!
Here's the US trailer for Andrea di Stefano's Escobar: Paradise Lost, originally from Apple:
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 Colombia. 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 premiered at the Telluride film Festival and played TIFF, but it arrives on iTunes on December 16th and then hits limited theaters next year on January 16th, 2015.
