Mel Gibson Visits State To Screen New Movie

Updated:
GOLDSBY, Okla. (AP) -- Actor and director Mel Gibson visits two Oklahoma towns this week to attend screenings of his new movie, "Apocalypto."

Gibson did not make a public appearance during screenings held at the Riverwind Casino in Goldsby and Cameron University in Lawton.

At the entrance of the casino, where the film was shown Friday to a mostly American Indian audience, reporters were kept behind partitions.

Cameron spokeswoman Amber McNeil says Gibson arrived at the university on Thursday morning wearing a mask and wig so he wouldn't be noticed.

Jhane Myers, an Oklahoma City-based publicist who escorted Gibson, issued a statement saying Gibson was, quote, "deeply touched by the warm reception he has received while in Oklahoma."

Gibson co-wrote and directed "Apocalypto," which is billed as an action-adventure film set in the last days of the Mayan civilization in Mexico. It will be released December 8th.
