Mel Gibson Protects His Daughter in First Trailer For ‘Blood Father’

Blood Father

It’s been four years since Mel Gibson last led a feature with 2012’s Get the Gringo, but he’s back this year on both sides of the camera. Later this year we expect his first directorial effort in a decade, the Andrew Garfield-led WWII drama Hacksaw Ridge, to arrive, but first we have Blood Father, an actioner directed by Jean-François Richet (Mesrine).

The first trailer has now landed today thanks to its Australian distributors, where it’ll arrive there in late August (it is still awaiting a U.S. release date from Lionsgate). The story concerns an ex-convict father who tracks down and protects his daughter from danger, and judging from the previews, there’s a good amount of action to be had. Also starring William H. Macy, Diego Luna, Michael Parks, and Richard Cabral, check out the trailer below.

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…

Blood Father arrives in Australia on August 25th and is awaiting a U.S. release date from Lionsgate.
