The rain showers took the edge off of Mel Gibson’s new movie “The Edge of Darkness”

Umberellas and raincoats were the order of the day at the Chinese Mann’s Theater and premiere of Martin Campbell’s new film “Edge of Darkness”

Cast:
Mel Gibson, Ray Winstone, Frank Grillo, Wayne Duvall, Frank Ridley Genre: Drama | Thriller
Director: Martin Campbell
Writer: Andrew Bovell, William Monahan
Studio: Warner Brothers

Plot:
As homicide detective Thomas Craven investigates the death of his activist daughter, he uncovers not only her secret life, but a corporate cover-up and government collusion that attracts an agent tasked with cleaning up the evidence.

The $80 million, R-rated political thriller will be a real test of Mel Gibson’s return to the big screen eight years after his DUI arrest and flap in Malibu that set the gossip trades on fire during the 2006 meldown. Crave Online talked to him about that indepth.

Actor James Karnes

“The crowd was light and we didn’t get to see much of anything,” Actor James Karners told this writer. “But it was worth the effort one never knows what will happen with these things. Yep it was raining and I had an umbrella. Because of the rain the people who were walking the red carpet did so at a place where one couldn’t see anything so we went home after a while.”

Karnes, who recently did a featured role with CBS Criminal Minds, where he played a security guard. The name of the episode is “Peracites”,  if you get a chance check it out.

Karnes is featured often, because he can actually act.

Mel Gibson and his girlfriend Oksana attended the premiere of “The Edge of Darkness”  held at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California last night (Jan26, 2010). And his baby-mama looked looked great just two months after giving birth to baby Lucia on Nov. 2, 2009  Mel’s eight child.

Mel Gibson was in good spirits Tuesday as he attended the premiere of his new film.  Mel strolled the red carpet at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre holding hands with girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, who recently gave birth to their daughter Lucia.

The controversial actor sat with Jay Leno this week where he opened up about his 3-month-old daughter and described when she wakes up in the middle of the night crying.  We’ll see if he will be smiling or crying when “The Edge of Darkness”  debuts in theaters on Friday.
