THE BEAVER a Movie Starring Mel Gibson

Here's the movie poster for THE BEAVER. A movie directed by Jodi Foster which stars Mel Gibson as a mentally-unstable man who wears a beaver puppet on his hand that he treats as a real person.

Due to Gibson's very public break-up with and outburst against his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Gigorieva, the movie might never be released in the U.S. However, it is going to be released overseas and the following poster was recently released as publicity for the movie.

I'm hoping that the movie will be seen in the U.S. if nothing else as a direct-to-DVD title. Mel's a messed-up man, but he's still a good actor with some decent comedic chops. I know a lot of people in Hollywood view him as poison, but that's not a consensus with the American public. Gibson has been a box office boon for cinema for decades. He's someone the American public loves. He's like the crazy uncle that everyone loves, even if they just love to hate him. He's become a kind of living embodiment of Archie Bunker and the public loved Archie. I think with the right marketing THE BEAVER will be a box office smash. The title alone is going to bring in the teenage-boy crowd.
