Making light at ‘Darkness’

Gibson, director Campbell celebrate at premiere

After Tuesday’s “Edge of Darkness” premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theater, producer Graham King admitted that he still gets butterflies over the prospect.

“For me, a premiere is absolutely nerve-wracking — even when you have a star like Mel Gibson,” a smiling King said at the after-party at My House. “It’s three years of your life up there, and it’s completely beyond your control.”

Gibson said he’s satisfied to be back on screen in the Warners pic, eight years after “Signs.”

“I’m very pleased about this one,” he added. “It was good for me to do something else and keep the acting from being stale — and I did direct a few films.”

Pic’s helmer Martin Campbell, who directed the original series for the BBC during the Thatcher era, noted that the new “Edge of Darkness” has no special effects — unlike “Green Lantern,” which he begins shooting in March in Louisiana.

Attendees at the bash included Jodie Foster and Warner execs Jeff Robinov, Kevin Tsujihara and Sue Kroll.
