Trailer: Mel Gibson in Blood Father

We are so here for Mel Gibson’s latest film Blood Father. Gibson teams-up with Mesrine filmmaker Jean-François Richet for this high-octane revenge thriller. Here’s the official synopsis:

After her drug kingpin boyfriend frames her for stealing a fortune in cartel cash, 18 year old LYDIA goes on the run, with only one ally in this whole wide world: her perennial screw-up of a dad, JOHN LINK, who’s been a drunk, a drug addict, a motorcycle outlaw, and a convict in his time, and now is determined to keep his little girl from harm and, for once in his life, do the right thing…

It’s been two years since Gibson’s last supporting role in The Expendables 3 and four years since his most recent lead role in the underrated How I Spent My Summer Vacation,  so we’re delighted Mel is back with Blood Father which looks a little more gritty and hard-hitting than your average 60+ action star vehicle. The film also stars William H. Macy, Thomas Mann, Elisabeth Rohm, Diego Luna and Michael Parks.

Blood Father hits UK cinemas August 25.
