Blood Father Trailer

"People get caught when they make mistakes… You stick with me, I'll give you everything I got." Lionsgate has premiered a new trailer for the gritty action thriller Blood Father, from French director Jean-François Richet (of the Assault on Precinct 13 remake, Mesrine Part 1 & Mesrine Part 2: Public Enemy #1), starring Mel Gibson as an ex-con badass who goes crazy trying to save his daughter, played by Erin Moriarty. The first trailer looked pretty good, this one is even better, almost like Taken meets John Wick set in the deep South. Hopefully the action is just as good as those films. Also starring William H. Macy, Thomas Mann, Elisabeth Röhm, Diego Luna & Dale Dickey. I might actually have to see this. Fire it up below.

Here's the new official trailer (+ poster) for Jean-François Richet's Blood Father, direct from YouTube:

Blood Father Poster

After her drug kingpin boyfriend frames her for stealing a fortune in cartel cash, 16 year old Lydia (Erin Moriarty) goes on the run, with only one ally in this whole wide world: her perennial screw-up of a dad, John Link (Mel Gibson), 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 is directed by French filmmaker Jean-François Richet, of All About Love, the Assault on Precinct 13 remake, Mesrine Part 1 & Mesrine Part 2: Public Enemy #1 previously. The screenplay was written by Peter Craig and Andrea Berloff, based on the novel by Peter Craig. Lionsgate will release Blood Father in theaters in the US starting on August 26th later this summer. See the first trailer here. Anyone interested?

    I thought he already made this movie before?? LOL...

      You're the only one laughing.
  • I thought the first one was better...
  • Josh W
    I miss the old Mel, bring back the old Mel.
  • Assault on Precinct 13 remake, Mesrine Part 1 & Mesrine Part 2: Public Enemy #1... All forgettable movies at best. the synopsis sounds like an Edge of Darkness remake.
    • Bo
      Well, Edge of Darkness was a pretty good movie. Come on, tarek! Not interested in this one?...lol... I gotta part company with you on this one, as I've found myself kinda interested after viewing this trailer. I like Gibson, though. Always have as an actor and also as a director. Having said that, I'll watch this. I loved him in his remake of Point Blank titled Payback. I was a big fan of Lee Marvin and didn't think anyone could re-do Point Blank with any degree of success, but Gibson and the rest of cast, etc. pulled it off with Payback. Mostly because of how good, and funny, Gibson was in it. This could be a pretty good movie a la the Taken stuff, etc. No?
      • I expressed myself poorly. I consider Mel Gibson as one of the greatest actors/directors of these last three (four?) decades. I loved Apocalypto and Braveheart, but wasn't fan of the Passion of the Christ which was torture porn for my liking. His last movies, while not masterpieces are still quite entertaining, even Direct to video productions like Get the gringo. It's just this father-daughter plot reminded me of Edge of darkness. Well, this time the daughter is not dead, but I feel like she will be killed before the end credits. ;D

          You expressed yourself fine, tarek. I was just teasin' with you, is all. I totally agree with your assessments of Gibson as both an actor and director. Although I liked Passion of Christ as a very, very well made film it was pretty much torture porn, as you say. However, not being a religious man or a church goer ever, I did not know that this whole ordeal of the Jesus myth was even called the Passion. I learned that is what the Passion is about...how much this Jesus guy suffered by being whipped without mercy for long periods of time with his flesh torn, etc. etc. Pretty heavy stuff. Gibson set out to show that and boy did he ever! It interests my a great deal how the Catholics, especially, immerse themselves in this suffering, torture thing. They really did support this film in huge numbers as it made a killing at the box office....and made Gibson a very rich man. He made almost 300 million dollars himself off the film. Wow...

            blah blah blah

            Well your reply is certainly intelligent. But who asked you? Why would someone insert themselves into a perfectly respectful discussion between two other people in such a manner? Better watch out sticking your less than intelligent nose into other's business least someone bite it off. Oh, right. The internet is a safe haven for cowards who wouldn't dare behave in such a manner face-to-face. You poor sod. I feel for you though. Take care. Peace.

    I already forgot about it. But thanks for spoiler in trailer that he shaves his beard.
    • CyraNOSE
      what a stupid comment
  • shiboleth
    Mel Gibson is doing what Mel Gibson does best; the revenge movie. And he looks bad ass. Yeah, he's not politically correct guy and in that respect, for me, he's pushing the wrong side of politically incorrect agenda, but at least he has ability to shoot a good movie. Worth of try ...
  • Charles Knowlton
    I miss the angry, drunk, racist Mel. Will somebody get this man a drink?
    • CyraNOSE
      Let it go dick head. He's a human being like everyone else, oh, other than you of course who is perfect and lives a perfect life, right?
      • Charles Knowlton
        Well, I wouldn't say "perfect". Aw, who am I kidding, yes I would.
  • grimjob
    I love seeing ol' Mel inflict pain, as he does it well. Doesn't happen enough these days.
  • Jonathan
    I could watch Mel play the psycho, vengeful parent all day.
  • More William H. Macy!!
  • Tyrell Antonio
    I was a bit skeptical, but I like how they portray the father and daughter as not some wholly innocents vs bad guys.
  • CyraNOSE
    Mel Gibson is such an awesome actor!!
  • Payne by name
    That works for me. I think Mel is fantastic, such a great voice. Would like to see this.
  • DJROBL
    Martin Riggs has a daughter?
