Mel Gibson still popular among moviegoers despite tabloid mishaps

HollywoodNews.com: Despite his 2006 drunken anti-Semitic rant before Malibu police and his fiery conniption to ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, audiences will still shell out their hard-earned dough to watch Mel Gibson on the big screen.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, a “60 Minutes”/Vanity Fair poll released Monday showed that more than three-quarters of Americans weren’t fazed by Gibson’s nasty audiotapes and would still choose to see one of his films.

The article further reports:

Asked if they were less likely to buy a ticket for a Gibson movie after hearing the tapes, 76% of Americans — including 80% of men and 72% of women — picked “No, no effect,” in the poll by magazine Vanity Fair and television news program “60 Minutes.”

This is an ironic consensus when juxtaposed with the blasé domestic B.O. returns for Gibson’s January flick “Edge of Darkness” which fell short at $43 million. The Boston cop thriller cost $80 million. “Edge of Darkness” was Gibson’s first on-screen role since the 2002 M. Night Shyamalan hit “Signs” which grossed $228 million.

Gibson will be seen onscreen again in Jodie Foster’s drama-edy “The Beaver.”
