Mel Gibson channels his inner Liam Neeson in the new trailer for Blood Father.
In the film from French director Jean-François Richet, Gibson stars as John Link, an ex-con turned tattoo artist who is suddenly reunited with his estranged teenage daughter (Erin Moriarty) — but there’s not much time to catch up since she’s wanted by police and drug dealers now that she’s killed her bad-guy boyfriend.
“It’s good to meet your friends,” Link says as his trailer in the middle of nowhere gets shot up. He and his daughter soon end up on the run before Gibson ultimately goes into full Taken mode to protect his daughter.
Blood Father, which also stars William H. Macy and Diego Luna, is set for release on August 26. Watch the full trailer above.
