Somewhere a Geek Weeps: Official Avatar Trailer

avatar-movie-image-7In spite of the exaggeration of the title, James Cameron certainly does wonder very well. There are few films which utilize both sci-fi and fantasy, while keeping both genres pure. Most stories would rather mix and match elements of each to create a fusion. But Avatar violently veers between the two extremes. I suppose that it’s done in order to establish the conflict between natural and technological. The trailer also lists Cameron’s credentials…more like announces them boldly, as if this is the culmination of everything that he has done so far. I still don’t know what to think of it, but the three and a half minute trailer certainly fills one with wonder, doesn’t it?
