Blood Father (2016) Test Screenings Take Place Tomorrow


It was originally scheduled to release right around now (in theatres too, as ManlyMovie exclusively revealed), but Blood Father has been pushed back to 2016.  It will screen this week though, albeit as a test screening.  Tomorrow in fact.  If we get any word on how it went then it shall be updated on this site.  Blood Father will screen tomorrow at Burbank, California.  I will avoid wrist slapping by not going into any further details about the venue, but the screening is listed for 17-49 year olds.

Mel plays an ex-con who reunites with his estranged, wayward 16-year old daughter, and vows to protect her from the drug dealers who are trying to kill her. That’s a tried and test formula for manly movies… but adding in the GOAT? Sign us on. Even better though, the movie will be directed by ‘Mesrine‘ andAssault on Precinct 13 helmer Jean-François Richet. The two Mesrines in particular were good manly movies, don’t deprive yourself of those just because they’re not in English.

This film was also written by Peter Craig, who penned heist thriller ‘The Town‘. All signs so far then point to something special.

    I’m a BIG Gibson fan and Lethal Weapon 1-2 are in my top 10 best movies ever, but if this sucks i’ll say it…

    Some people think we are gonna defend Gibson no matter what, WRONG. if it’s great, good, if it sucks, it happens…

    Some seem to be concerned this might be a dog but the credits are very promising ..I think the long delay has more to do with Gibson’s toxic media profile and we all know who to blame for that. I’m optimistic.

    Lots of films do this; there is nothing wrong with it. Just scheduling issues. Mesrine is a fabulous film. I’m not worried at all.

    I read the book and Mel will own his part, no doubt. It’s a cool role for him.
