Mel Gibson's Mayan epic "Apocalypto" which actually is slated to hit worldwide theaters on August 4th, 2006 has to reluctantly been pushed to December 8, so Touchstone Pictures announced.
Detailing on the reason behind, a spokesperson for the studio said that the production had fallen behind because of heavy rains in Mexico, where Gibson is shooting the film.
Just like the actor's "The Passion of The Christ," which was shot in Aramaic and Latin, "Apocalypto" is being done in an ancient tongue, Yucatec Maya.
The film is set against the turbulent end times of the once great Mayan civilization.
