Mel Gibson Movie Breaks UK Record

Apocalypto had the biggest all-time opening weekend. “The film, spoken in the Mayan dialect and estimated to have cost £20m, has taken £1.3m since its release last Friday. The film, which has received the kind of attention directors of other foreign language films can only dream of, beat the previous record holder, Hero, which took £1.05m in 2004 during its opening weekend.”
