    LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25 -- Mel Gibson's eccentric promotional foray to the heartland with his new movie "APOCALYPTO" may have helped introduce the film to a vast potential audience. But it also left the beleaguered star with a lot more explaining to do.

    Mel Gibson is holding early screenings of his Mayan drama, "Apocalypto."

    The filmmaker and actor, fiercely criticized for his anti-Semitic outburst when he was arrested for drunk driving last July, showed the as-yet unfinished movie on Friday, first at a casino and at Cameron University in Oklahoma, where he arrived in wig and disguise, according to The Associated Press. Then he moved on to the Fantastic Fest film festival in Austin, Tex., where he compared the American troop deployment in Iraq to the kind of human sacrifice depicted in his film, about ancient Mayans, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
