Last month at SXSW Festival in Austin Texas Jodie Foster’s THE BEAVER made its world premiere it stars the actress alongside Mel Gibson who plays a depressed family man finds solace and comfort through a glove puppet of a beaver. I think after the disgraceful shennigans of Gibson over the last few years many hoped this movie would be poor but reading the reports from the festival its turning out to be one of the actors best movies in a long time and fingers crossed this will be the start of his long recovery in hoping the general joe public starting to forgive him a little.
As the movie is receiving positive reviews Icon Films have just emailed us today to let us know they will be releasing the movie in UK & Ireland on June 17th, so we can expect a new trailer to arrive very shortly
