Mel Gibson will be making his return to the big screen in Edge of Darkness on January 29, 2010. Gibson stars in the film as Thomas Craven, a homicide detective from Boston. When his 24-year-old daughter Emma is murdered in front of his eyes, Craven is assumed to be the real target. However, Craven is less convinced and embarks on a journey to find the truth.

This film looks very intense, maybe even over the top, but considering it is being directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) and scripted by William Monahan (The Departed), the potential for this film is hard to ignore. To me, it seemed like a more intense version of 2009's State of Play. Gibson looks certifiably maddening in the role, but give the trailer a watch below -- courtesy of Yahoo -- and decide for yourself.
