Mel Gibson teams up with Kate Bosworth and Emile Hirsch to fight off some deadly criminals in the midst of a Category 5 hurricane in the first trailer for Force of Nature.
Hirsch plays a cop who is trying to evacuate an apartment complex when he runs into Dr. Troy (Kate Bosworth) and her father, the latter of whom stubbornly refuses to leave his home despite the raging storm outside.
Little do they know that a group of thieves led by John the Baptist (David Zayas) are breaking into the building in pursuit of $55 million that has been hidden somewhere on the property.
Gibson reveals himself to be a retired detective who is familiar with the bad guys, and won’t let them walk away with the money without a good old-fashioned fight.
Force of Nature, directed by Kate Bosworth husband, Michael Polish (90 Minutes in Heaven) and also starring Will Catlett, Swen Temmel, Tyler Jon Olson and Jorge Luis Ramos, will be available on various formats June 30 through Lionsgate.
Gibson will soon be seen opposite Frank Grillo in Joe Carnahan‘s action movie Boss Level.
Force of Nature will be distributed by Prorom in Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia.
