Liongate has released the first official trailer for its Jean-Francois Richot directed actioner Blood Father starring Mel Gibson as disgraced father, ex drunk/drug addict motorcycle outlaw. The film, also stars William H. Macy, Diego Luna, Michael Parks and Erin Moriarty, in what is hopefully another film on the road to recovering Mel Gibson as the legendary movie star he is.

Here's the official synopsis: 

 "After her drug kingpin boyfriend frames her for stealing a fortune in cartel cash, 18 year old Lydia goes on the run, with only one ally in this whole wide world: her perennial screw-up of a dad, John Link, who’s been a drunk, a drug addict, a motorcycle outlaw, and a convict in his time, and now is determined to keep his little girl from harm and, for once in his life, do the right thing…"

Blood Father hits Australian Cinemas on August 25th, than other territories later on in the year.
