'Get the Gringo' Trailer with Mel Gibson, Formerly 'Summer Vacation'
"Trouble in paradise." The first official trailer for a movie now titled Get the Gringo, originally known as How I Spent My Summer Vacation (see the teaser poster), starring Mel Gibson has just debuted on Deadline, where they announce it'll be straight-to-VOD through an exclusive one-month deal with DirecTV (which I don't have). AICN also mentions they're kicking off a 10-city screening event from Austin, for those who are really into this. The trailer kind of feels like a mix between Snatch and, well, Gibson wreaking havoc in Mexico, and it looks a lot more comically entertaining than it does action-packed. Give this a shot below!

Here's the synopsis on IMDb: A career criminal (Gibson) nabbed by Mexican authorities is placed in a tough prison where he learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy. Get the Gringo, originally How I Spent My Summer Vacation, was produced by Gibson's Icon Productions and filmed in Mexico way back in 2009. It was directed by Adrian Grunberg, a first assistant director (Jarhead, Apocalypto) making his feature debut. The screenplay was written by Grunberg, Mel Gibson & Stacy Perskie. Deadline just announced that Get The Gringo will hit VOD formats through DirecTV (for a month only) starting on May 1st this summer.
