Trailer Bulletin: Apocalypto

by Scott Weinberg | Wednesday, Dec. 21 2005

That unpredictable ol' Mel Gibson has some a new movie brewin'. It's called "Apocalypto," and it looks like it hopes to be a big player in next summer's movie wars. Check out the brand-new trailer right here.

"Co-written by Gibson and Farhad Safinia, "Apocalypto" is a heart stopping mythic action-adventure set against the turbulent end times of the once great Mayan civilization. When his idyllic existence is brutally disrupted by a violent invading force, a man is taken on a perilous journey to a world ruled by fear and oppression where a harrowing end awaits him. Through a twist of fate and spurred by the power of his love for his woman and his family he will make a desperate break to return home and to ultimately save his way of life."

Mr. Gibson is, of course, the well-known actor turned director of "Braveheart" and "The Passion of the Christ."
