Mel Gibson's Get the Gringo - Poster, Trailer and Stills

May 1st will see the debut, on DirecTV, of the Mel Gibson flick Get the Gringo, which he also wrote and produced. Gibson plays a criminal who crashes whilst crossing the US/Mexico border and finds himself serving time in a tough Mexican jail (is there any other kind of Mexican jail?). Get the Gringo will hit Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and Digital on a wide release later in the year.

GET THE GRINGO, starring Mel Gibson, is an explosive action filmed infused with dark comedy directed by Adrian Grunberg from a screenplay he co-wrote with Mel Gibson and produced by Mel Gibson, Bruce Davey and Stacy Perskie. Filmed in Mexico, the multi-lingual film also stars Daniel Gimenez Cacho, Jesus Ochoa, Roberto Sosa, Dolores Heredia, Kevin Hernandez, Fernando Becerril, Mayra Serbullo, Mario Zaragoza, Gerardo Taracena, Tenoch Huerta and Peter Gerety.

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 will be available on DIRECTV on May 1 for the premium price of $9.99 in HD and be followed by the film’s wide release on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download later this year.
