Mel Gibson The Beaver trailer: drama or comedy?

Check out the trailer for Mel Gibson‘s new movie, The Beaver (click on the headline above to see it). Jodie Foster directed the movie, but it was put on hold after the tapes in which Mel rants at his ex-girlfriend were made public. The Beaver is about a man suffering from clinical depression. He becomes alienated from his wife (Foster) and their children. But when he finds a beaver puppet in the garbage, he begins talking with, and then through the puppet (who has an Australian accent). Have a look and see what you think — the narration makes it seem like a comedy at first, but then it appears to turn into a drama. Do you think this will resurrect Mel’s career? Will you go see The Beaver?

    It’s hard to say. I guess we’ll find out when it opens. I hope for Jodie Foster’s sake it does well.

    Maybe it’s a dramedy.

    A twisted love triangle between a lonesome lesbian, an anti-semite alcoholic and a stuffed beaver… this has Oscar nomination written all over it.

    I think this movie will ressurect both Mel Gibsons career and Jodie Foster who hasent been in a decent movie since The Inside Man, plus Anton Yelchin is Mels son in the movie which i think is an interesting choice hes becoming pretty big himself after last years double wallop of Terminator Salvation and Star Trek and the upcoming Fright Night remake his career is booming to. so could this film about a talking beaver hand puppet really be a career definning film for everyone inviolved, the older actors making a comeback of sorts and the young upstart actor looking for next big film up the ladder, i guess well see on the 17 lol
