With Avatar less than a month away, Fox has released a new featurette that has James Cameron talking about the science and hardware that can be found in the film. As much as I am trying to avoid any spoilers, I do think it’s a must watch. You really start to get a sense of just how detailed and well thought out the world of Pandora is. Plus, the small glimpses we get of the action scenes don’t hurt. You can see the clip after the jump.
I’m pretty sure if you are on this site you already know what Avatar is, but for those just tuning in, here is the film’s synopsis.
“Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people. More than 10 years in the making, “Avatar” marks Cameron’s return to feature directing since helming 1997’s “Titanic,” the highest grossing film of all time and winner of 11 Oscars including best picture. WETA Digital, renowned for its work in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy and “King Kong,” will incorporate new intuitive CGI technologies to transform the environments and characters into photorealistic 3-D imagery that will transport the audience into the alien world rich with imaginative vistas, creatures and characters.”
Avatar hits conventional, 3-D, and 3-D IMAX theaters on December 18th.
