First Trailer: Mel Gibson In “Blood Father”

Mel Gibson returns to the screen in territory more familiar to that of Liam Neeson in recent years in the first trailer for his newest starring vehicle. “Blood Father” has Gibson playing John Link, an ex-convict who must protect his estranged daughter (Erin Moriarty) from violent drug dealers.

William H. Macy, Thomas Mann, Elisabeth Rohm, Diego Luna and Michael Parks also star in the project which boasts a script by Peter Craig (“The Town”) and has been directed by “Mesrine” helmer Jean-Francois Richet. The film will first open in Australia on August 25th ahead of an international release through Lionsgate later this year.
