Mel Gibson Buddies with 'The Beaver' -- Trailer

Check out Mel Gibson in the trailer for his upcoming dark comedy The Beaver.

Synopsis: Walter Black (Gibson) is a man on a journey to re-discover his family and re-start his life. Plagued by his own demons, he was once a successful toy executive and family man who now suffers from depression. No matter what he tries, Walter can’t seem to get himself back on track, until a beaver hand puppet enters his life.

The flick, which will hit theaters sometime next spring, also stars Jodie Foster, who directed the project.

    Yes I will go watch him, he’s a good actor, I don’t care what anybody says. If everyone truly said what they were thinking in this world we would all be in a padded cell (look this analogy up if you don’t buy it, starting with what Albert Einstein has to say about truth) Those tapes are still open for investigation and whether or not the voice is actually MEL GIBSON or an imposter and his ex-girlfriend payed someone to beat her up, there’s evidence of this too. Also what kind of a person would tape record private conversations? Oksana is no innocent in this, also it’s alleged that Oksana was shaking her baby daughter and Mel was trying to get his daughter away from her. She’s already got a child by Timothy Dalton. I don’t think much of her. Robert Downey Jr’s still on Mel’s side so that’s proof enough for me.

    Hes a fantastic actor, which makes it all awful. Do you watch a movie you know will be done well, that supports a woman abuser?

    I dont think its worth it.

    I don’t know if I will see this film but Gibson is a very talented actor who is always worth watching.

    He obviously has a lot of problems but I find the current attacks on him to be very unfair and hypocritical. He should be judged in court for his behaviour and not in the cheap tabloid press. He is certainly not the first person to cheat and I can think of many famous performers who treated their partners very badly without suffering the media onslaught that he is going through. As a woman I cannot justify any violence but it is clear that the lady involved is very manipulative and a judge should decide and not a mob.

    As for the previous antisemitic tirades when he was very drunk, well I am Jewish and they weren’t pleasant to read, in fact they made me feel sick. I have been a fan of Gibsons since he first started acting in Australian films and that is a long time ago. He behaved badly, he obviously has a real substance problem and may also be an antisemitic like his father. Personally I go to the cinema to watch good films and performances and that is what I get from Mel Gibson. I still hope that he will be able to pull things together, settle with his former partner and get on with his life and career.

    You’ve made some profound philosophical points. And yet b56 is right too. I had no idea what a conspiracy theory was until MG starred in a movie by that name. Now I can see them everywhere. The Passion of the Christ threw us all for a loop. He is a radical actor and director.

    It is said that when a group turns on an individual, as long as at least one person stands up for them, they can often be redeemed.

    I remember standing up for Hugh Hefner when Paul Snider slew Playmate Dorothy Stratten, while almost everyone else turned on Hef.

    I stood up for Winona Ryder, during her shoplifting phase. I stood up for Paris Hilton, and then Lindsay Lohan, more recently.

    I’m wondering, who will have the nerve to stand up for Julian Assange, of Wikileaks, for that matter, at the moment? That case is really weighs heavy on him.

    I am repulsed by MG allegedly knocking his girl’s teeth out and his vicious tirades owing to the Demon Bottle. I want to believe in him, Yes I will see his film. I believe in redemption. “But for the grace of God”, they say, “there go…”

    Ruth – You are one very level-headed person.
    It is true, who are we to judge others? We do not know the true story.
    I will definitely watch his movies.

    Brightside Says:

    A portrait of a man who can stick his hand up a beaver’s a$$ but can’t pull his head out of his own a$$ to acknowledge the truth about himself and how despicable a creature he has become. A Jew-hating, homosexual-hating, woman-beating fascist. Great actor or not, as a tolerant Christian human being he is a big failure.

    Mike Says:

    Looks like a great film. Personal issues aside, I suspend reality when I want to go to a cinema and be told a story.. The majority of press he has been given hasn’t even been substantiated by any real facts or evidence, and at this point a lot of it can be put down to hearsay. I will let the courts decide, and until then I ill eagerly await this film. Besides, Jodie Foster never disappoints!

    Yuraku Says:

    The guy holds racist views passed onto him by his father, bullies women, shouts like a lunatic when he can’t have his own way and has his PR arrange paid posters to go on sites to write positive stuff about him. Will I watch his movies – HELL NO

  14. 14
    Yuraku Says:

    I just went back and read some of the comments……..I hope he paid you well.

    It doesn’t matter how much provocation any woman gives a man he does not have the right to hit or bully her…a decent person walks or runs away as fast as he can. Paid posters you are prosti*tuting yourselves. Say no to the money and stop posting cra*p to defend him. He’s got enough money and power to do that all by himself.

    Beth Says:

    Simple – I’m watching this movie – it’s different. I’m not really interested in Mel Gibson’s private life. That’s basically his business and shouldn’t affect who watches his movies. He’s provided enough quality work for me to just focus on that (separate the two).

    If I read up on every star regarding their private life I wouldn’t watch 99% of their movies – NONE OF THEM ARE SAINTS (let’s get real).

    Foster and Gibson are both brilliant so again it has my interest.

    I don’t know what I’m going to say or do in the present or near future so I will give him a chance. People might say Mel Gibson has had enough chances already but still who are we really to judge him let God decide.

    In the meantime, I watching his movies.

    Heather Says:

    Sorry, but I refuse to shell out the hard earned money I earn on any movie that stars him. I cannot put what he has said and done aside, because I am disgusted by his behaviour. Given some actors are paid millions of dollars for a few weeks worth of work, I want to show that I do not support anything with him.

    Until and unless he truly changes his ways, there is no way I will put a cent into anything to do with Mel Gibson, given what a hateful human being he seems to be. He definitely does not expound Christian values with this type of behaviour!

    Lena Says:

    It’s funny, some posters say don’t judge him, let God judge him. Shouldn’t Mel take this advise himself and stop judging others, especially minorities?

    Heather Says:

    It’s funny, some people here say, don’t judge him, let God judge him. Shouldn’t Mel take that advice himself and stop judging others, especially when it comes to minorities?

    Anna Says:

    i do believe in my heart that Mel should get some type of medical help.I also feel that he has commited attrocities against his ex – but she has done things to slander him as well. However, concerning the remarks made while he was drunk years ago, I don’t believe that he is truly that huge of a racist – especially against Jewish individuals. Robert Downey Jr was raised Jewish – by his Jewish father and mother. RDJ is still Jewish and he married a Jewish woman, Susan. Mel Gibson and he are very close and Mel helped bring Robert’s career back They are still close and Mel was recently at Robert’s birthday party. If he truly hated the Jewish. He would not love Robert so much. He has said alot of things because he has been an alcoholic – basically since his career has started. I would say he is probably still an alcoholic.
    Mel will always be one of the greatest actors, directors, producers in Hollywood no matter what happens. That can’t be denied him. He just really needs to get good psychiatric help. Getting him to admit he needs help will be the hardest thing. I will still see one of his movies, if it merits seeing because no matter what- the man can still act better than most of the actors out there today.

    ICU Says:

    I think it looks great and will for watch. I love Mel Gibson, he’s a great actor and just needs to get through this hard time after making a some bad decisions in his life. We all have been there, his is more in the limelight because of who he is and where he lives. Give the guy a break. Once he is rid of this crazy woman that he got involved with, gets custody of his daughter and away from the crazy lady, he will be fine. Maybe he can even get his life back with his wife. Good luck Mel!

    Mel and his issues Says:

    Mel was/may still be a talented actor and he USED to be quite ‘droolworthy’ as well. (I loved him in ‘Mad Max’ and the ‘Lethal Weapon’ series.) The years (and especially the alcohol abuse) have taken their toll. He’s definitely got deep issues that need to be addressed and fixed (IFpossible). I suspect his fanatically ‘religious zealot’ father had a lot to do with ******** him up mentally and emotionally. Anyway, would I see his latest film? Probably, when it comes to DVD, mainly because I’m curious.

  23. 23
    say what? Says:

    Yes, I am going to go see this movie. As for Mel Gibson, if we were all taped illegally and extorted for money (just google her) and had everyone rush to judgment, I don’t think anyone would like it. I’d slap someone too to get them to stop shaking my baby (that’s the word going around the music producers’ vines, she’s caused a lot of problems….and she shook the baby) research it for yourselves instead of listening to her, who hasn’t told the same story twice w/o multiple lies.
    She sets DV victims back years by using them, she’s no battered woman either. She’s a goader.

    Thanks to Jodie and Mel for a movie that deals with depression and/or mental illness, no one will remain untouched in their lives somehow. Everyone needs to find a “voice to speak for them”.

    Clay Says:

    People are so quick to judge him, especially most of his Hollywood piers. And yet they would be lining up in a heartbeat to be in one of Roman Polanski’s films. A tad hypocritical don’t ya think? He seems a bit crazy to me, definitely not stable – but doesn’t that just about sum up most of Hollywood?

    Looks like a great movie to.
