First Trailer For Mel Gibson In THE BEAVER

I’m never that interested in reporting on the lives of celebrities, but sometimes that type of gossip news does impact on the actual films themselves. Case in point being how Mel Gibson’s recent public personal problems have pushed back the release of his latest film, The Beaver. In limbo for the past several months, Summit Entertainment has finally announced that the Jody Foster-directed film will be coming our way sometime in 2011. They have also released the first trailer for the film, below.

Interestingly, the film is about a man searching for redemption, and it invariably invites the classic “art imitating life” comparison. Granted, I don’t expect to see Gibson showing up to promote the film with a hand puppet of his own anytime soon, but it would be interesting to see how he talks about the film when that time comes.
