Amazon Studios have been on their A-game recently and they only look to continue it in 2018 with GringoNash Egerton's dark comedy about a businessman who finds himself kidnapped by the Mexican Cartel. The trailer and poster are here.

Amazon Studios debuted the first trailer for Gringo earlier this afternoon and in all of its red-band, NSFW glory. Check it out below:
And here is the green-band one for those interested, although it is literally just the same but without all of the swearing and, well, comedy:
I will be honest, I wasn't jumping with excitement for this film when I first heard about it - it just seemed too goofy a concept to work. However, having now seen the trailer, I think it might be just so goofy that it works. I love the cast aboard this film and it looks like this film will be hilarious and just balls-to-the-wall insane; it really looks genuinely very funny. It's quite a pulpy trailer too, and I love the energy of it and everyone involved. I'm very much looking forward to Gringo now.

Here's the film's official synopsis:
An exhilarating mix of dark comedy, white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, Gringo joyrides into Mexico, where mild-mannered businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) finds himself at the mercy of his back-stabbing business colleagues back home, local drug lords and a morally conflicted black-ops mercenary. Crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal, Harold battles to survive his increasingly dangerous situation in ways that raise the question: Is he out of his depth — or two steps ahead?
With Nash Egerton at the helm, and starring David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron, Joel Egerton, Amanda Seyfried, and Sharlto Copley, Gringo will hit U.K and U.S cinemas in just a few months time on March 9th, 2018.

And here's the first poster for you all too. It's colourful and matches the trailer above pretty accurately in terms of really popping with vibrancy and energy:
