LONDON – Often-controversial director Oliver Stone has blamed the failure of his epic film Alexander on the “raging fundamentalism” in the U.S. South.

The film, which stars Irish actor Colin Farrell in the story of the Macedonian conqueror Alexander the Great, was greeted with derisive reviews.

It was also a failure at the box office. Budgeted at roughly $150 million U.S., it has pulled in only $34 million so far.
