New ‘Narcos: Mexico’ Trailer Shows Explosive Rise of Marijuana-Fueled Drug Empire
“If someone has a problem with this… they know where to find me.”
A new, full-length trailer for Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico shows a bloody battle between the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Guadalajara cartel.
Set in 1980, DEA Agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Pena) is pitted against real-life kingpin Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo (Diego Luna), aka the “Rockefeller of marijuana.”
Here’s Netflix’s official synopsis of the show:
Narcos: Mexico will explore the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers. Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire.
When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.
Despite Gallardo’s nickname, cocaine-fueled parties set to Melle Mel’s 1983 hit “White Lines” are also depicted throughout.
The gritty gangster action Narcos fans have grown to love isn’t lost either as Gallardo bashes in the brains of some unlucky character.
“If someone has a problem with this… they know where to find me,” he says menacingly.
The climax of the trailer comes when Camarena is kidnapped and forced to confront his nemesis face to face.
Watch what happens when Narcos: Mexico premieres November 16 on Netflix.
