Raindance 2013 line-up announced

But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Mel Gibson and Beaver and Trailer, Oh My! Print E-mail

Either this trailer's been really well cut or it's my lemur hand-puppet talking, but this is looking rather good. Yes, I'm talking about the trailer for the film about Mel Gibson's beaver.

We all thought it had been put back by Summit Entertainment after the recent, erm, incidents, but now The Beaver is on its way to US cinemas in Spring 2011. Hooray for anti-Semites and their therapeutic puppets!




Has Mel gone gonzo (puppet pun ahoy!) and pulled a Joaquin Phoenix on us? Was all that racist and misogynistic stuff just a marketing ploy to build up to Jodie Foster's film? Is Ben Stiller going to pop up any minute and play himself again?

No. His beard's not big enough. And the trailer's too sentimental towards the end to have ever been coincidentally parallel to real life. Plus there's no way anyone could pretend to be that mental. Mel's just not that great an actor. I mean, look at Braveheart. Or, more preferably, don't.
