GRINGO Red-Band Trailer Is Absolutely Wild!

Amazon Studios rolled out their first official trailer in fine form for Nash Edgerton's new road action comedy, Gringo. David Oyewolo leads and teases a hilarious fish-out-of-water narrative for this one with actress Charlize Theron milking the heck out of another boss role alongside Joel Edgerton fetching his best American accent to date.
Mild-mannered pharmaceutical company executive Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) takes a business trip from Chicago to Mexico with his cutthroat bosses Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Elaine (Charlize Theron). 
At the company’s Mexican lab, Richard orders manager Sanchez (Hernán Mendoza) to stop selling the bioengineered marijuana product Cannabax to a brutal, Beatles-loving cartel kingpin known as The Black Panther. Meanwhile, straight-arrow Harold learns he’ll be out of a job as soon as Richard and Elaine sell their newly cleaned-up company to a conglomerate. And when he turns to his wife Bonnie (Thandie Newton) back home for comfort, she confesses via Skype that she’s having an affair. 
Targeted by the ruthless Black Panther, who hopes to gain access to the Cannabax formula, Harold disappears before his bosses return to Chicago. A few hours later they receive a call informing them he’s been kidnapped, and his captors are demanding a $5 million ransom. Rather than pay, Richard dispatches his mercenary-turned-humanitarian brother Mitch (Sharlto Copley) to extract Harold. But even with some temporary assistance from warmhearted American tourist Sunny (Amanda Seyfried) and her drug-mule boyfriend Miles (Harry Treadaway), Harold’s prospects for survival grow dimmer by the minute. 
Pursued by an army of attackers, Harold crosses the line from mild-mannered citizen to wanted criminal. But is he out of his depth? Or two steps ahead? An action-comedy roller-coaster ride brimming with black humor, white-knuckle car chases and double-dealing, Gringo takes the concept of adventure travel to a whole new level.
That Edgerton, the acclaimed debut helmer behind The Square, is also stuntman speaks highly here to his accumulating credentials. His approach to outlandish and gonzo comedy here from a script by Anthony Tambakis and Matthew Stone looks proper and the addition of Sharlto Copley peppering things in that department should all but add to the delight when Gringo rolls out in select theaters in March.

A green-band and NSFW trailer are online... but I'm sharing the latter because I suspect that we're all adults and otherwise concious beings aware of what to do and what not to do at the workplace. Enjoy!
