Mr Gibson’s Apocalypto, set 600 years ago in Central America and Mexico, at the end of the Mayan civilisation, follows the fight of one man and his desperate journey to save his idyllic world. As well as handling direction, Mel co-wrote the actioner with Farhad Safinia.
The entire film is shot in Mayan, so the trailer is made of a sequence of images rather than attention-grabbing speeches but boy-oh-boy… what images.

Apocalypto is set for a summer 2006 release.
