Trailer for Mel Gibson's Get the Gringo
Posted 03.31.12 by Chris
No one is more suited to play the anti-hero than Mel Gibson. Gibson has played the role in 2010's Edge of Darkness and 1999's Payback. Gibson, still in career comeback mode after his off-camera antics, falls back in the role in the dark comedy actioner Get the Gringo.
Here's the movie's synopsis:
During a high-speed car chase with the US Border Patrol and a bleeding body in his back seat, Driver (Mel Gibson) violently crashes his car into the border wall as he tries to outrun them. Driver survives the crash only to land inside a hard-core Mexican prison where he enters the strange and dangerous world of "El Pueblito." He finds unlikely guidance from a 10-year-old kid who shows him the ropes.
Get the Gringo, formally titled How I Spent My Summer Vacation, will premiere on DirecTV exclusively before a wider home video release.
Gibson also produced the movie and co-wrote it with director Adrian Grunberg. Filmed in Mexico, the movie also stars Daniel Gimenez Cacho, Jesus Ochoa, Roberto Sosa, Dolores Heredia, Kevin Hernandez, Fernando Becerril, Mayra Serbulo, Mario Zaragoza, Gerardo Taracena, Tenoch Huerta, and Peter Gerety.
