Edge of Darkness PosterThe trailer for Mel Gibson’s new movie looks fantastic and looks very much like my perfect type of film. Yahoo have released the new poster (click it to enlarge) and trailer which begins with some poncy music making the film look and sound like it’s going to be a lovely, family movie, but with a name like Edge of Darkness, surely it couldn’t be! A few more seconds and we’re into a scene where Gibson’s daughter has been killed and he’s meeting Ray Winstone who tells him that his daughter may have been a threat to the US – Gibson doesn’t believe it for a second!

Edge of Darkness is directed by the man who brought us Casino Royale and is in line to direct The Green Lantern, Martin Campbell. Danny Huston, Bojana Novakovic and Shawn Roberts complete the casting lineup and we can expect to see it on our screens, 19th February. Check out the trailer below.

Thomas Craven is a veteran homicide detective for the Boston Police Department and a single father. When his only child, 24-year-old Emma, is murdered on the steps of his home, everyone assumes that he was the target. But he soon suspects otherwise, and embarks on a mission to find out about his daughter’s secret life and her killing. His investigation leads him into a dangerous looking-glass world of corporate cover-ups, government collusion and murder — and to shadowy government operative Darius Jedburgh who has been sent in to clean up the evidence. Craven’s solitary search for answers about his daughter’s death transforms into an odyssey of emotional discovery and redemption.
