Edge of Darkness trailer

Oct. 14, 2009by: Dave Davis

Definitely nice to see Mel Gibson back on the screen. A bit more leathery since SIGNS, perhaps, but still very much a movie star. Dodgy Boston accent and all.

In the thriller EDGE OF DARKNESS, Gibson is a Beantown homicide detective investigating his own daughter's death and uncovering high-level corruption (which, as it tends to do, probably goes all the way to the top). Ray Winstone plays a government "cleaner" sent to handle the matter in the way that shady movie government types do.

The movie comes from CASINO ROYALE director Martin Campbell (based on his BBC series) and THE DEPARTED writer William Monahan, so the twists and setting aren't a surprise. It's set for release on January 29th, 2010.

Check out the trailer below (great closing line in there) or in HD at Yahoo

Extra Tidbit: Winstone replaced Robert DeNiro, who abruptly exited during filming over the typical "creative differences."

YAWN!

How many times are they going to make the same movie, in the same looking house with phones ringing and a wronged Father looking for justice??? We've seen it a million times before.

Looks great. Always good to see Gibson kicking ass again.

Also always good to see a new Campbell film (Can't wait to see Green Lantern).

The trailer reminded me of Liam Neeson's "Taken". That's a good thing.

AGAIN???

As much as I like Mel Gibson and Martin Campell but this looks like your typical Revenge fantasy. It's always the same. Some relative of Mel Gibson gets killed so the violence in the rest of the movie can be justified. Violence is great and all but c'mon, I was hoping for something a little more original...

Not really Ransom 2, but you can say a Max Payne do-over (with better cast & crew). I'd much rather see this pseudo MP than that God awful original MP.

Great actor AND director

Definitely lovin' the sounds of this one. Gibson, Winstone, Campbell, Monahan = Very Down

Gibson's awesome, he's gonna OWN this. Sure, he's made some mistakes, but fuck the Gibson haters.

Between this and The Beaver, I'm predicting a nice comeback for Gibson. And I guess you never really know until you see otherwise, but I agree that Winstone definitely looks like the better actor for the role.

God Damn!

I love Riggs (Riiiiggs!), Martin Campbell is one of my favorite directors, and I actually prefer Winston to DeNiro (at least in this role). And this trailer looks pretty good. I am so there.
