Digital Spy has an exclusive UK trailer of Edge Of Darkness, Martin Campbell's movie remake of his own 1985 BBC television classic.

The original TV series was written by the great Troy Kennedy Martin (The Sweeney) and starred Bob Peck as Ronald Craven, a Yorkshire police officer who investigates the brutal killing of his daughter right on his doorstep and uncovers government and corporate conspiration which could threaten the future of the world. The score was by Michael Kamen and Eric Clapton, no less.

Mel Gibson stars in the movie and face Ray Winstone. The names of Campbell, Gibson and Winstone are sufficient enough to inspire the interest of your humble servant, who's a big fan of the original. And a fan of Gibson and Winstone too.

If you can, do yourself a favor and buy the DVD box set of the TV version.
