How I Spent My Summer Vacation Poster
Mel Gibson returns... with a gun!

Mel Gibson's follow-up to The Beaver may be going straight to DVD over in the U.S. under the new title of Get The Gringo, but over here in Blighty it'll be hitting cinemas under its original name, How I Spent My Summer Vacation.

Written by Gibson himself, it tells the tale of Driver - no, not the Ryan Gosling one; this is Mel's role - an American criminal who pulls off a big job in the US of A before winding up south of the border and banged up behind bars.

With the help of a nine-year-old boy he befriends in jail, he sets about getting out; from the looks of things, with the help of a gun, some grenades, and some scowly looks.

Here's a poster for the film, and beneath that, a teaser trailer to give you a better taste of what exactly How I Spent My Summer Vacation is.

 

 

How I Spent My Summer Vacation is out on May 11.

Get The Gringo
Not impressed with the new title although the tagline 'Plan your getaway' is rather good. Thought the old title 'Get The Gringo' worked better. More
