'APOCALYPTO' Withdrawn From Malaysia

Mel Gibson's epic movie, "Apocalypto", has been rejected for screening in Malaysia. It is understood that "Apocalypto" was not allowed to be shown because of intended censorship cuts which are deemed by the film-makers as 'detrimental to the integrity of the movie'.

"Apocalypto" was scheduled to open nationwide on 8 February 2007. It is about a young man's quest for freedom after being captured by the Aztecs as a sacrifice to their gods. It is set during the decline of the Aztec kingdom in South America and it is Gibson's 'warning' about mankind's excesses and wastage of precious natural resources.

Another Fox/Warner Bros movie which was rejected for release in Malaysia was "A Good Year". The reason is merely a matter of dollars and sense as it is deemed not worthwhile because of its limited appeal. The movie reportedly did not meet the producers' expectations at the box-office.
