Mel GibsonSome footage has hit of Mel Gibson's next project, Apocalypto, and I'm probably the least excited person on the planet to see it. Taking place about 600 years ago, around the time when the Mayans had an empire, Gibson has hired a bunch of unknowns to speak in an ancient dead language and attempt to give the film some sort of something extra. Apocalypto will be Gibson's first film since The Passion of the Christ which, last time we checked, had grossed over 1 gabillion dollars. However, the J-Man will not be front and center in the new film, so it will be interesting to see if Gibson maintains that heavy Christian fanbase, or if they drop him like a bad habit. Personally, I'm still not sure what's gotten into the star of Bird on a Wire and Air America. I like Mel Gibson. I've enjoyed a ton of his films. I just wish he'd come back from obscurity to start entertaining us again. Supposedly, Entertainment Tonight will show some kind of teaser for Apocalypto tonight, but in the meantime, feel free to check out this sneak peak.
