Jodie Foster’s Beaver has a Trailer

Apologies for the headline, but truth be told, so many people are concerned about the whole Mel Gibson side of this trailer that they’re completely missing out on all sorts of wonderful Jodie Foster “beaver” jokes.

Anyway, the trailer itself has me intrigued.  Visually, the film looks wonderful, and it’s packing more emotion than I expected from a film about a talking beaver.  However, even if it looks good or turns out to be great, will it ever get the respect it fully deserves?  Perhaps.  History continues to prove that people are ready to forgive Mel, especially since it looks like no charges are going to be filed against him.

Let us know what you think below.  Truthfully? I’ll buy a ticket.

Mel Gibson Still Crazy Nuts

R.I.P. Farrah Fawcett

I’d be lying if I told you that I wasn’t excited about Edge of Darkness, Mel Gibson’s big return to acting.  Sure, it’s a plot that we’ve seen over and over again, but it’s also a plot that allows loony Gibson to do what he does best: kicking ass.

However, if there has to be just one other thing that crazy ol’ Mel is good at, it’s the fine art of resurrecting dead languages in an effort to exploit them on film.  Such was the case in his last two directorial efforts, which have featured everything from Aramaic to the little known Yucatec Maya language. 

So, what’s next for wacky pants Mel?  Old Norse.  Yes, you read that right.  Zany brainy Mel let it fly during a press conference for Edge of Darkness that he was making a Viking film with Leonardo DiCaprio that would feature Vikings speaking their native language.  But wait!  There’s more!  He then slightly confused everybody by saying this:

“I think it’s going to be English – the English that would have been spoken back then – and Old Norse.  Whatever the 9th century had to offer.  I’m going to give you real.” 

So, now it’s in Old English too?  Which is it going to be, Gibby?  Oh, who am I kidding?  He could remake Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome in Yiddish for all I care and still get my money.
