    Well,the guy that made Terminator 1,Terminator 2,The Abyss,Aliens and Titanic has made a new movie,and he swears that this is going to take CG and the crafting of alien worlds in cinema to a new level:



    "Avatar is set hundreds of years in the future on a planet called Pandora, which orbits a gas giant, and is inhabited by the tribal Na'vi, ten foot blue humanoids that are peaceful unless attacked. Humans cannot breathe Pandoran air and are very fragile compared to the ferocious native life who appears to be incredibly evolved from a biological standpoint, so they genetically engineer human/Na'vi hybrids known as Avatars that can be controlled via a mental link. A paralyzed Marine named Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) volunteers to exist as an Avatar on Pandora, falling in love with a Na'vi and becoming caught up in the conflict between her people and the human military that is consuming their world."

    Starring Sam Worthington,Zoë Saldaña,Sigourney Weaver,Michelle Rodriguez,Stephen Lang,Joel David Moore.


    It's going to come out on December 18, 2009.

    I'm not expecting much from this storywise, more like eyecandy due to the whole 3D thing.

    But cameron also put high hopes and effort into the videogame for this movie, and that's more interesting to me.

    Lol common mistake. This is for James Cameron's Avatar which'll be about aliens or some shit along those lines. Completely original. While M Night is directing (Avatar)The Last Airbender based off the nick series Avatar. With the names being so close & all it's easy to get confused.

    This movie is gonna change the industry.

    Not even hype, critics and early viewers have all confirmed it. No movie before has had CGI like this.

    Well,yes.

    Everybody that saw the footage was convinced that this is indeed something special.

    But I wouldn't be nearly as excited as I am for this movie if this wasn't made by James Cameron.

    The guy said that he waited for a long time to tell this story,which he considers to be his "soul" project.

    He actually waited 15 years and developed the CGI to make an alien world belieavable.


    I can't wait for the trailer!!!:argh

    I don't think it will change the industry. Hell I don't even think it'll beat TDK in the box office. Ill definitely see it once I get a taste of what it is though.

    I heard that 24 minutes of footage was screened at CinemaExpo International in Amsterdam. It seems to have been recieved pretty well. I would still like to see a decent trailer for it. I'll probably go see it when it is out.

    ^Of course it won't. 2 big reasons.
    1. It's not Batman. No superhero background to back it up with mass fans.

    2. No heath ledger death = Auto less sales.

    Despite that dark knight didn't change shit either. So movie doesn't have to change anything to make it an amazing movie.

    Don't forget that this movie is from the dude who also made Titanic,the greatest blockbuster of all times.

    I too doubt that it will surpass TDK but still..

    Wonders can happen..:hehee

    James fucking Cameron is making this movie, not to mention he claims to have spent 10 years on the movie so Im pretty sure this is gonna be one motherfucking epic movie.

    It could be easily as big as TDk but it ain't gonna be another Titanic, no fangirls here just fanboys.
