James Cameron’s Sci-Fi Epic Avatar Teaser Trailer Arrives At Last

We’ve been covering James Cameron’s “Avatar” pretty heavily over at our sister site SciFiCool.com, and of course there’s nothing bigger this week than the release of the first-ever “Avatar” teaser trailer, which you can check out below and behold the … blueness of Pandora. Mechs, avatars, crazy alien plants, warmongering humans, and badassly scarred Marines are all on show in the teaser trailer.

AVATAR takes us to a spectacular new world beyond our imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of redemption and discovery, as he leads a heroic battle to save a civilization. The film was first conceived by Cameron 14 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist. Now, after four years of actual production work, AVATAR delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film, disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.

Starring Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, Sigourney Weaver, and written and directed by James Cameron.

    Um. I’m actually underwhelmed by that. All this hype and thats all we get. No dialogue, no plot set up, just random action and not even music to get us emotionally invested. Come on. And is it me or did the close ups on the Navi look a little cartoonish? When they’re all angry looking they look fine but they look a little off. All this talk of groundbreaking cg, and all I can think is Gollum, Dobie, and Distric 9 all looked better. Sigh I hope the first full trailer is better

    • yeah

      If you WATCH the trailer…. you can see the whole plot. He’s the only one that could pull something like this off.

        No I mean I saw the whole plot, I’m mean like nothing to get us interested in the characters. This looks okay but not the amazing film it was made out to be.

    I think James Cameron is a great director. I think The Abyss Director’s Cut is one of the best Sci Fi movies every made. I agree – I was underwhelmed by the trailer and I am really apprehensive about the character designs and special effects. District 9 proves less is more. I will reserve judgement for the final movie, but for some reason, I can’t help but think of another movie when I see those aliens: Battlefield Earth….
