Storyline

From Academy Award winning filmmaker Mel Gibson, comes "Apocalypto" 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.

Trivia & Production Notes

    • The film, which Gibson is directing, producing and financing, will be spoken in Mayan dialect, although like his last film, The Passion of Christ, which he shot in Aramaic, it is expected to have English subtitles.
    • The film's cast is to feature largely unknown actors from Mexico City as well as indigenous Mayan-speakers from the region of Yucatan and U.S. Native Americans.
