Mel Gibson is putting his muscles on full display in his upcoming movie Blood Father.
The 60-year-old stars in the action thriller as an ex-con who is determined to protect his teenage daughter from drug dealers.
The actor sports multiple tattoos and rides a motorcycle in the film, which is set to hit US theaters on Friday.
The movie star knows a thing or two about being a protective father as he is dad to eight children.
Mel plays John Link in the Jean-Francois Richet directed film, starring alongside Erin Moriarty, Diego Luna and William H. Macy.
The Mad Max star can be seen showing off his character's tattoos throughout the film, while dressed in a tank top and dark wash denim.
The New York-born actor looked to be a pro on the motorcycle and can be seen in the front seat of the bike with his on screen-daughter.
In another scene, the Academy Award winner is in the midst of a gun fight with Diego as they take cover in a SUV.
The screen star is seen sporting a heavy beard and grey hair in the beginning of the film.
William stars as Link's sponsor - Kirby Curtis - in the flick.
The movie is based on the 2005 novel by Peter Craig, who also wrote the script.
Blood Father was filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico with production wrapping in July 2014.
