Mel Gibson is once again up to his neck in controversy (or as Mel calls it, Thursday), and while he’s trying to dig himself out of this latest one, he and Fox Home Entertainment are prepping to unleash Gibson’s latest, “Get The Gringo”. The film used to be called “How I Spent My Summer Vacation”, which I personally think is a much better title, especially for a Mel Gibson movie. It’s so … Mel Gibson-y. In any case, check out a new revised trailer and new batch of images from the movie below.
It’s been a bad day for Driver (Gibson) and it’s not getting any better. He just made a big haul of millions that would give him a nice summer vacation on easy street. A good idea that went south — literally. During a high-speed car chase with the US Border Patrol, and a bleeding body in his back seat, Driver flips his car smashing through the border wall, tumbling violently, coming to a stop … in Mexico. Apprehended by the Mexican authorities, he is sent to a hard-core prison where he enters the strange and dangerous world of “El Pueblito”, the worst prison in all of Mexico. Not an easy place for an outsider such as Driver to survive, unless it’s with the help of someone who knows the ropes – a 10 year-old kid.
Also starring Peter Stormare, Dean Norris, Bob Gunton, Scott Cohen, Patrick Bauchau, Kevin Hernandez, and directed by Adrian Grunberg.
“Get the Gringo” arrives on DIRECTV on May 1st, followed by a wide release on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download later this year.
