Watch: Wagner Moura Plays Drug Lord Pablo Escobar in Netflix’s ‘Narcos’


The full trailer for Narcos, Netflix’s original series on the drug war during the ’80s, is finally out (after a very withholding but potent teaser trailer that depicted a map of South and Central America made of Cocaine, with blood dripping onto it and the tagline, “There’s no business like blow business”). Created and co-executive produced by José Padilha (RoboCop),the series follows DEA agents, played by Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones‘ Oberyn), on their many raids to capture infamous drug lord Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura of Elysium).

Here’s the official synopsis (via /Film):

Narcos chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It details the conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in an effort to control the world’s most powerful commodity: cocaine.

The entire series will be available on August 28th. Watch the trailer:
