I'll admit I'm not jumping out of my seat with anticipation of Mel Gibson's latest spiritual epic, Apocalypto. However, I do give the guy credit for thinking way outside the box, getting creative and producing projects he's passionate about, instead of force-feeding the public a ton of regurgitated plotlines. Cinematical received an updated synopsis of the film in our mail bag-o-fun this morning and, based on the description, it actually does sound pretty cool. Check it out below and click on the read link for another glance at the trailer.

From Academy Award(r) winning filmmaker Mel Gibson ("The Passion of the Christ," "Braveheart"), 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.
