Avatar Trailer

The trailer for Avatar, James Cameron’s new film permiered on Apple.com last week and was viewed a record-breaking 4 million hits on its first day. I missed the panel at Comic-Con last month, but I did see the action figures and to scale loader contraption from the film, which looked very similar to the one from Aliens, also written and directed by Cameron. Avatar, not to be confused with the live action Last Airbender film, is released on December 18. The sci-fi film stars Aussie Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana (Uhura in the latest Star Trek) and Sigourney Weaver. Filmed in 3-D and using brand new technology developed just for the film, it looks like a spectacle. The trailer reminds me of the teaser from The Phantom Menace a decade ago – lots of pretty shots with no meaning, no clues as to the story and no real dialogue. I’ll definitely be watching this one on the big screen.
