Mel Gibson is hardly one to judge the quality of someone’s personal life, but given his track record as a director, he is in a position to judge the quality of films — in any case, he’s certainly entitled to his opinions, just like the rest of us. And in news that will probably become a huge deal in certain conspiracy theory corners of Reddit, the actor and director has some harsh words for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
If you weren't beyond excited already for The Professor and the Madman, a film adaptation of a book about the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary, get hyped, because Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer has joined the cast that includes Sean Penn and Mel Gibson.
Here comes another WWII film, but this one has a pretty distinct story. The latest directorial effort from Mel Gibson, ‘Hacksaw Ridge,’ follows the true story of a solider who refused to use a weapon on the battlefield.
Mel Gibson has spent the majority of his career playing variations of the same slightly unhinged character, so it was probably inevitable — even despite his well-deserved years in the Hollywood penalty box — that some producer would find occasion to cast him as a slightly unhinged dad. The new trailer for Blood Father shows Gibson ranting and raving as per usual, only this time he has an estranged daughter on the run to protect and a survivalist beard. The latter certainly seems like an upgrade.
Faith-based films have been riding a wildly successful wave for several years now, only recently stumbling a bit with the underwhelming box office returns for God’s Not Dead 2. And while that seemed to indicate that faithful audiences might not be too keen on sequels, Mel Gibson may very well prove that theory wrong as the actor and director is apparently plotting a sequel to The Passion of the Christ.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is loaded with great actors in supporting roles, from Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Douglas to upcoming additions like Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton. It’s names like those that help enrich the MCU; it’s harder to dismiss these movies as silly comic book fare when you have someone like Sir Anthony Hopkins playing Odin. As it turns out, that specific bit of casting wouldn’t have happened if Marvel went with an earlier choice: Mel Gibson.
Welp, if the movies weren’t going to take Mel Gibson back, you could bet he’d try the TV gold rush eventually, though perhaps not literally. Gibson will star in and produce a new series alongside Kurt Russell and Kate Hudson, following the 1849 Gold Rush of The Barbary Coast.
Blood Father is not a very good movie title, but there could be something to this new thriller starring Mel Gibson as a tattoo artist / biker badass / former convict / loving father. The first trailer offers a narrative familiar to anyone who’s seen a Liam Neeson action flick (and its many imitators), but Gibson’s wacky character description combined with a few shots seemingly lifted from Mad Max: Fury Road make Blood Father seem a bit more interesting than your average Red Box rental.
Six years after his memorable Mel Gibson burn at the 2010 Golden Globes (“I like a drink as much as the next man. Unless the next man is Mel Gibson…”), Ricky Gervais again had to introduce Gibson at this year’s Golden Globes. Gervais mixed in a Nazi...
Since Lethal Weapon, Lethal Weapon 2, Lethal Weapon 3 and Lethal Weapon 4 were seemingly not enough, a new series based on the 1987 action movie starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover is in the works at Fox.
