Get The Gringo stars Mel Gibson as Driver, an American criminal who violently crashes his car into the border wall as he tries to outrun the U.S. Border Patrol. Driver survives the crash only to land inside a hard-core Mexican prison where he enters the strange and dangerous world of “El Pueblito.” Driver finds unlikely guidance from a 10-year-old kid who shows him the ropeset.
The wide release on VOD, Blu-ray and DVD will be Tuesday, July 17, 2012.
The premiere screening of Get The Gringo was held in Austin on April 18 and was followed by a Q&A moderated by Ain’t It Cool News’ Harry Knowles. The screening and Q&A was streamed live to nine cities around the U.S., where fans were able to interactively participate.
