We’ve seen endless number of movies which David Oyelowo has shown off his fantastic dramatic chops. Rarely do we see the British actor unleash his funny bone until now with Gringo.
Next March the rule book has been ripped apart for a madcap black comedy which sees Oyelowo a mild-mannered businessman. He travels southbound for business mingling with the worst of the worst of Mexico, the criminal underworld. Can he survive?
This movie looks an interesting change of direction, crazy, insane movie giving him some light relief or is that ‘dope’? STX Entertainment has sent us the movies UK Trailer, check it out…
Combining dark comedy with dramatic intrigue, Gringo joyrides across the border into Mexico, where all is not as it seems for mild-mannered American businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo). Crossing the line from citizen to criminal, Harold tangles with duplicitous business partners, Mexican drug lords, international mercenaries, and the DEA. As he attempts to survive in one of the most dangerous places on earth, the question lingers: is this ordinary man in way over his head, or is he two steps ahead?
Directed by Nash Edgerton, who made his feature length directorial debut with the acclaimed Australian thriller The Square, Gringo also stars Joel Edgerton, Amanda Seyfried, Charlize Theron, Yul Vazquez, Thandie Newton, and Sharlto Copley.
The movie will be released on 9th March 2018 in the UK, Ireland, and The USA.
