Film trailer: Mel Gibson in 'The Beaver'
Tuesday 07 December 2010
The upcoming drama
The Beaver, directed by Jodie Foster and starring Foster and Mel Gibson, posted its first trailer on December 4.
The story follows a man suffering from depression who finds his way back to his family and wife with the help of a therapeutic hand puppet.
The footage shows Gibson estranged from his family and wife, played by Foster, until he discovers a beaver puppet whom he speaks through. He brings it to the office at a toy company, and as it helps give him a voice to work out his problems, he slowly reclaims his life. The film also features Anton Yelchin ( Star Trek, Terminator Salvation).
Due to the media attention around Gibson's personal scandal with a separation and custody battle, the film has been delayed until a spring release in the US.
So far, the film opens in the Netherlands on January 6, Norway on January 14, and then in the UK on February 11.
