Trailer Park Tuesday, Benicio del Toro as Pablo Escobar in Paradise Lost


Young surfer Nick (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 called Maria (Traisac). It all seems perfect until he meets her uncle, one Pablo Escobar (del Toro).

I’ve been waiting to see footage of this film for what feels like forever! If you know me offline, or have been reading my blog for any real amount of time, then you know Benicio del Toro is my very favorite actor, and has been for over a decade. One might say I’m a tad-bit obsessed. I guess I can live with that. Anyway this teaser looks amazing. The shot where Benicio is giving the look – you “the look” it gives me chills already. I am so looking forward to seeing this movie on the big screen!

How about you? Do you think you’ll be seeing Paradise Lost?

    I like you think that Benicio del Toro is a terrific actor and would love to see him in this movie. This movie sounds very interesting with a lot of intrigue!

    My mother’s family is Colombian and I would ordinarily say I’d prefer a Colombian actor to take the role, but you can’t argue with the talent of Benicio del Toro. He was mesmerizing when he took on a Mexican accent in “Traffic” and I assume he had training in taking on a Colombian accent. I’m looking forward to this movie!

  4. You sure are right about “The Look”! This is the first I have heard of this one but it definitely sounds and looks interesting. You sure are right about Benicio! I will watch this one.
