The new trailer for Netflix original series Narcos has landed - and it looks epic.

It tells the true story of the U.S. and Colombian efforts to battle the Medellin cartel during the cocaine-fuelled drug wars of the 1980's.

The Medellin cartel were the most violent, ruthless and wealthy criminal organisation in the history of modern crime.  And one man lorded over them all - Pablo Escobar.

The series, stars Wagner Moura as Escobar, Boyd Holbrook as DEA agent Steve Murphy, Pedro Pascal as DEA agent Javier Peña and Stephanie Sigman.

If the series is as stylish, tense, and dramatic as the trailer we can expect a gem.

The series arrives on Netflix on Friday August 28.
