'Get the Gringo' trailer: Mel Gibson goes to jail

Even if you haven’t been going to Mel Gibson’s movies, the guy is still making them – but his new one isn’t even hitting theaters. Get the Gringo, an action-comedy written by and starring Gibson as a criminal who learns to survive life in a Mexican prison with the advice of a 9-year-old boy, will skip the cineplex and go straight to DirecTV on May 1.

Releasing on VOD is an interesting choice, no doubt, but maybe the best one for a man whose box office performance has dwindled in recent years. Regardless, it’s been quite a long time since we’ve seen Gibson do the action-comedy thing, something he was particularly good at back in the Lethal Weapon and Ransom days. Could Get the Gringo be a return to Mel Gibson, circa 1987? Watch and decide for yourself:
