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

45 Comments

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.

    Imo, aliens look preety wierd in a good sense, just like that screaming human-mutant from C. Cunningham’s “Come To Daddy” video. Long arms and legs and
    strange looking face, not that cartoonish at all, just strange. Cameron is one
    of few flim directors who enjoyes so much in chrushing and smashing things on the screen. I really like that about his movies. So much fun..

    meh, take away the body-swap avatar angle and you’ve got another story about evil humans and their technology vs aliens who live in harmony with nature and whatever, which means we can look forward to a story which reminds us EVIL WHITE WESTERN SOCIETY IS THE EVIL-EST WHITEST EVIL THING IN THE UNIVERSE!!!! How is it that someone works on a movie for 14 years and fails to see how obvious the plot is? I’m already imaging the following events to occur in the movie:

    GUESSWORK SPOILERS:

    -Jake Sully and a female alien meet when one saves the other’s life, then fall in love.
    -At least one Na’vi male looks down on Sully as inferior or sees him as a threat, probably motivated by romantic jealousy, but Sully confronts him or undergoes a rite of passage and prove himself.
    -After spending time with the Na’vi and making friends, Sully witnesses atrocities against the aliens where he knows both the victim(s) and perp(s) and gets wind of a far-reaching plot by the humans to wipeout the Na’vi. He must… choose a side. Of course he sides with the Na’vi, and joins them in battling Imperial stormtroopers in the forests of Endor’s moon
