Radius-TWC has released the Escobar: Paradise Lost trailer online. The film follows a young Canadian (Josh Hutcherson) who goes to Columbia and falls in love with a local girl (Claudia Traisac), but gets caught up in the criminal empire of her uncle, drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (Benicio Del Toro). Paradise Lost carried a lot of potential, especially with Del Toro playing Escobar, but I found the film to be a massive disappointment when I saw it at TIFF. This trailer saves people the trouble of seeing the movie by basically showing the entire plot minus some shots that are misleading since they’re taken out of context.
Hit the jump to check out the Escobar: Paradise Lost trailer. The film opens January 16th.
