'Get the Gringo' Blu-ray Dated and Detailed

Posted Tue Jun 5, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Mad Mel is back and he's even more dangerous behind the wheel in this dark comedy coming to Blu-ray next month!

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox has slated 'Get the Gringo' for Blu-ray on July 17.

Academy Award Winner Mel Gibson steals the show - and anything else he can get his hands on - in this explosive, nonstop thrill ride packed with equal parts action and attitude! A career criminal (Gibson) pulls off the heist of a lifetime, but his getaway plans go south of the border when a high-speed car chase lands him in a hard-core Mexican prison community known as "El Pueblito." Now, in order to survive, he'll have to fend off corrupt cops, take down ruthless druglords...and team up with a streetwise ten-year-old who has a few secrets of his own!

The Blu-ray combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Get the Gringo: A Look Inside, "El Corrido del Gringo" music video, and three on-set featurettes (The Car Chase, The Showdown, and The Raid).

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
