Hey. Hey, hey, come here, take a look at this.
(at around 38 mins) Sebastian sets the clock on the sarcophagus to October 10, 2004 - 10/10/2004, because the Aztec calendar was supposedly based on 10's (the decimal system, erroneously called "metric" here).

The Aztecs would not recognize what we call "October" as the 10th month.

The "Unrated" home video version, released on DVD and Blu-Ray, contains numerous additional scenes, including an alternate opening set in 1904. As part of the "Unrated" feature, significant post-production changes were made to the film, most notably the addition of heavily edited CGI blood and gore. This change affected all human character deaths, as well as several creature deaths.
