Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster’s “The Beaver” gets 2011 releas date


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: “The Beaver” is coming! “The Beaver” is coming!

Ever since Jodie Foster revealed the trailer for her suddenly controversial drama “The Beaver,” which stars Mel Gibson as a mentally bruised husband-father who learns to communicate by talking through a beaver hand puppet he finds in the trash, this film has hovered near the top of my “Must See” list for 2011.

Unlike some, I’m able to separate Gibson the “actor” from Gibson the “Self-Destructive Public Figure.” In fact, I think he’s only interesting as an actor BECAUSE he’s such explosive personality. And “The Beaver” looks like it will play right into all of the quirks Gibson can bring to a character.

But in light of Gibson’s publicized troubles, it was rumored that Foster’s “Beaver” might forgo a theatrical run and go right to DVD. Today, however, Summit has announced that it will give the film a limited release on March 23 before expanding on April 8.

That’s great news. Now I’m hoping the film can live up to, and overcome, its early negative hype.

    God, Gibson looks about 70 years old in these previews. Whatever poison is inside him has made him age very rapidly. His looks are gone.
