I’m very excited to start this week’s This Week in Movie Posters with Blood Father, the movie where Mel Gibson plays a tattoo artist version of Liam Neeson. I know this because I already saw the trailer, I didn’t just glean all that from the poster. Though it is pretty cool that the bottom of the poster looks like a tramp stamp. Get it? “Blood father” is like a tattoo pun.
Being super grizzled really suits Mel Gibson. He sort of had that awkward phase between hot heartthrob and old badass, but I think he’s finally settled into leather-skinned ass kicker mode. And this looks like an absolute classic of the scared-daughter-on-the-phone genre.
