Opera star Placido Domingo's seven-year-old movie epic THE OTHER CONQUEST is to be re-released in US cinemas to mark Mexico's national day Cinco de Mayo (05MAY07). The film, about the ancient Aztec tribe's efforts to preserve its culture in the wake of the Spanish invasion in the early 16th century, was released to limited cinemas in 2000 and grossed an estimated $3 million (GBP1.5 million). But, following the success of Mel Gibson's APOCALYPTO movie, Domingo and his fellow producers have decided the time is right to re-release their film. Domingo also appears on the movie's soundtrack, performing an aria that was written especially for the film.
