Eat The Press


Today marks the release of Mel Gibson's Mayan epic Apocalypto — a film that was very nearly canceled in the wake of Gibson's violent, drunken, anti-Semitic rant after being pulled over for a DUI this summer. Gibson went to rehab, his PR machine went into overdrive, and Apocalypto went into post-production — and today, it is being touted as a "bravura feat of epic filmmaking," with actual Oscar buzz as well as the promise of "disembowelings, impalings, clubbings and beheadings." Take that, Dreamgirls!

The film's dialogue is spoken in native Mayan dialects, but NYT filmmaker A.O. Scott notes that "the film's real language is Hollywood's, and Mr. Gibson's, native tongue." ETP has obtained several stills from the movie — with subtitles — decide for yourself after the jump!
