Mel talks about ‘The Beaver’, ‘The Hangover 2′, and why those tapes shouldn’t be held against him.
What’s it like playing opposite Jennifer Lawrence and a woodland creature puppet?
A strong portrait of coping with depression. With a beaver.
The crazy Mel Gibson puppet movie has a later release date.
We’re all excited to see The Beaver. Some of us more than others. Looks like the film may debut before the scheduled SXSW screening. On computers at the very least.
A handful of rather high profile films have been added to the lineup of March’s South by Southwest film festival, including Greg Mottola’s Paul, Jodie Foster’s The Beaver, and a new documentary entitled Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop.
Someone recut the trailer for The Beaver so that it included Mel Gibson’s infamous rant quotes. This story seems a lot more interesting now. It was weird when Mel gave the beaver puppet a distinguished British accent. It clearly would be asking people to blow it.
The film stars Mel Gibson as a depressed toy executive and family man who uses a beaver puppet to work through emotional pain. It also feels like a creepy apology card.
I’m surprised to see how much Foster is enjoying it. Look at the smile on her face! She just loves how Mel is manipulating that thing, and it shows.
The headline was pretty self-explanatory, but just in case you can't figure it out, here are some details. ComingSoon has released this teaser poster from Mel Gibson's upcoming film The Beaver directed by Jodie Foster. The poster is funny for two reasons. Reason one: Mel Gibson comes off as pretty insane, like the character in this poster. Reason two: Gibson was driven insane by some crazy Russian beaver, so it's funny to see him holding one. That is all (MovieLine)
As you probably know, Mel Gibson's cameo in The Hangover 2 fell through, and the role was given to Liam Neeson. While that is sad news, there's no reason for Mel to sweat it. There are pleanty of blockbusters in production, any one of which could help jump-start his scandal plagued career. We went ahead and did some research, and narrowed it down to nine upcoming films that Mel should focus on.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
While they have many adult fans, the Harry Potter films are for children. Children don't watch TMZ, so what better way for Mel to slip under the radar than with a cameo in the Deathly Hallows. It's a great plan, unless Mel's private church considers it witchcraft.
Mel Gibson runs with a pack. The Mel Gibson comeback express is leaving the station, and the first stop is The Hangover 2. The second stop is some sort of…
She's got his back.
No word yet if The Beaver will see a theatrical release, but director Jodie Foster has come to Mel Gibson's defense when asked about the disgraced star's recent scandal and beating in the press. Foster tells More magazine about her brother from another mother. Take it away Jodie:
"[Mel is the] easiest, nicest person I've ever worked with [and] the second I met him, I said, 'I will love this man for the rest of my life.'"
In all fairness, her other best friends are Darth Vader, that guy who punched Snooki, and that chick who threw those puppies in a river.
"When you love a friend, you don't adandon them when they are struggling. Of course, Mel is an undeniably gifted actor and director, and 'The Beaver' is one of his most powerful and moving performances. But more importantly, he is and has been a true and loyal friend. I hope I can help him get through this dark moment."
She then added: "Oksana really should have just blown him in the jacuzzi. He deserves it." (via The Playlist)
