Fox News reports that Disney is looking for other distributors on which to unload scandal-tainted Mel Gibson’s new movie, “Apocalypto,” about the mysterious expiration of the Incan Empire. Fox’s sources point to Lion’s Gate Films, which picked up Kevin Smiths’ “Dogma” and Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” when Disney got cold feet, as the most likely candidate. Today, Lion’s Gate executives denied that they were negotiating for the rights to “Apocalypto,” and wiser heads, if not better sources, were saying that Disney is probably stuck with Mel’s Incan-language epic: Even without Mel’s anti-Semitic outburst, the movie, with no recognizable stars and a R-rating for violence, doesn’t promise the fast bucks of a big opening weekend that would lure an alternative distributor.

Meanwhile, Mel stars in a new trailer, “Signs (of Anti-Semitism),” based on his role in M. Night Shamalyan’s “Signs.” Never has Adam Sandler’s ‘Hanukkah Song’ seemed so scary. See for yourself:
