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?

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.

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

what a stupid comment

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 ...

I miss the angry, drunk, racist Mel. Will somebody get this man a drink?

Charles Knowlton on Jul 7, 2016


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?

CyraNOSE on Jul 8, 2016


Well, I wouldn't say "perfect". Aw, who am I kidding, yes I would.

Charles Knowlton on Jul 9, 2016


I love seeing ol' Mel inflict pain, as he does it well. Doesn't happen enough these days.

I could watch Mel play the psycho, vengeful parent all day.

More William H. Macy!!

I was a bit skeptical, but I like how they portray the father and daughter as not some wholly innocents vs bad guys.

Tyrell Antonio on Jul 8, 2016


Mel Gibson is such an awesome actor!!

CyraNOSE on Jul 8, 2016


That works for me. I think Mel is fantastic, such a great voice. Would like to see this.
