Touchstone Pictures has made us aware of a 6 1/2 minute extended sequence of the jaguar chase and mauling scene from the film Apocalypto which is now viewable on YouTube.

The scene they have for you is one of the most pivotal in the movie. Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood) has escaped his captors and is now being chased by a group of Mayan warriors. This is only the first section of what is an elongated and highly visceral chase sequence that takes place for the majority of the film.
