Gina Carano Channels Mel Gibson circa 1996 in Trailer for “In the Blood”

On Wednesday, we passed along the incredibly generic poster for Gina Carano‘s latest action flick, In the Blood, which in itself is an incredibly generic, almost meaningless series of words. Seriously, unless Carano’s character swims in her husband’s blood and/or reveals that he is actually her brother (TWIST!) in this film, In the Blood is the kind of vacant, faux-badass phrase that makes absolutely zero sense and seems destined for an Affliction shirt in the near future.

In any case, a trailer for In the Blood hit the Interwebz earlier today. In it, you will find Carano going all “Give me back my son husband!” across Fiji maybe (?) after a ziplining escapade gone awry unearths a conspiracy that goes ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP, I TELLS YA! While the trailer makes sure to include plenty of ‘splosions, Superman punches*, and the guitar riff you always hear at UFC weigh-ins, it is surprisingly absent of Danny Trejo, which makes me wonder if he even beheads a guy with a machete before having a threesome with the jabroni’s wife and daughter in this film. (*sighs*)

In the Blood hits select theaters, iTunes, and On Demand April 4th.

*Which brings us to our next CagePotato Ban: Superman punches in movies featuring MMA fighters. Has there ever been a movie tentatively connected to MMA that *didn’t* include this move? We get it, the Superman punch has a cool name and looks cool to boot. It’s also a technique that only an absolute dipshit would attempt in a street fight.

[VIDEO] Extended Trailer for “Fast and Furious 6: The Fastening’ Reveals Some Tasty Gina Carano Armbar Action

(“Dwayne, you wouldn’t understand what it’s like to go back to a sport that has been consumed by PED usa…you know what, nevermind.”) 

I was shocked to come to the realization that the first Fast and the Furious movie came out when I was only 11 years old. I vividly recall that a friend of mine started quoting the film like it was scripture in the weeks that followed. “It doesn’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile,” he would say whilst aimlessly staring out the nearest window, presumably dreaming of a life that involved less social studies and more drifting. We stopped speaking shortly thereafter.

All I’m saying is, my former friend must have been onto something, because here we are some 12 years later discussing the upcoming release of the sixth film thus far in the franchise. And while the extended trailer for Fast and the Furious 6 is almost unidentifiable from the trailers for any of the other films, it does contain some footage of Gina Carano that was sadly cut from the trailer during its Super Bowl spot. Mainly, this kind of stuff (gif courtesy of Fightlinker):

Somebody just went from six to midnight.
