LOS ANGELES (June 4th, 2012) – Car chases, bloody bodies and a hard-core prison… all in a day’s work.  Mel Gibson’s vacation plans take a turn for the worse in the raw, explosive and action-packed GET THE GRINGO, arriving on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download July 17 courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Icon Productions. 
Gibson stars as Driver, an American criminal who violently crashes his car through the border wall as he tries to outrun the U.S. Border Patrol and coming to a screeching halt in Mexico.  Having survived the crash only to land inside a hard-core Mexican prison, Driver enters the strange and dangerous world of “El Pueblito.”  In the middle of this ruthless penal colony, Driver must do whatever it takes to survive, even if he must turn to the  unlikely guidance from a 10-year-old kid who shows him the ropes.

Featuring a command performance reminiscent of his early action-adventure career, Gibson’s talent is excelled only by his contributions to GET THE GRINGO as the film’s producer and co-screenwriter.  Gibson teamed with Adrian Grunberg his first assistant director on APOCALYPTO who co-wrote and debuted as director on this explosive action flick.  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.  Co-producers include Bruce Davey and Stacy Perskie.   The Blu-ray is loaded with special features including five behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the film and a music video.  Prebook is June 20.

I saw the trailer this AM while watching Men of Valor.  I had never heard of the movie, but it looks like a total blast.  Mel Gibson's narration on the trailer put me over the top:
