Mayan Rain Delay for Apocalypto

Apparently Mel Gibson forgot to check the farmers almanac, but report is that a rain delay has slowed down the production of his latest film Apocalypto (see my post here for more on the film).

Now instead of coming out in August it is coming out December 8th instead. Sure, maybe rain is the reason, but I imagine that Disney and Touchstone pictures are realizing that this does not have the buzz it needs to be a summer blockbuster and that perhaps they need to campaign for the film differently and place it in the prime of award and family film season. And at this point it doesn't look like Disney has too many films to campaign for come award season, unless they have high hopes for their gynastic themed film Stick It.

No buzz? Surely I'm not the only one who'd take Quetzalcoatl over Jesus any day.

I take it that you are not a fan of Mel Gibson then?
