Breaking News About James Cameron's AVATAR

James Cameron showed 25 minutes of Avatar at Comic-Con today and the reactions range from “jaw-dropping,” “gasp-worthy,” “indescribable” to “historic.” Since the lucky people who got to see it are having a hard time putting their feelings into words, I’m glad we’ll get a chance to see it for ourselves…NEXT MONTH!

That’s right, we won’t have to wait until Dec. 18 to get a glimpse of this movie. tweeted this about 10 minutes ago: “Avatar Day is Aug. 21 – See 15 minutes of footage in IMAX 3D for free! More details to come!” I’ll keep you updated.

Meanwhile, check out these stills from the movie. Who’s gonna be in line next month like me?

    I’ve heard about this thing, but I never read any of the books or video game…it looks beautiful. It’s not one of those he-man movies is it? They scare me.

      You don’t need to have read or played anything. This is an original story Cameron wrote and he claims it’s a love story.

        And wouldn’t the alien (Na’vi) love interest be one Zoe Saldana (recent Star Trek movie fame)? [insert wert whirl here] 😉

    OMG!!! I am so glad I have you to keep me abreast of these things! I am dying to see this movie, and to see even a glimpse of it, for free? WOW!

    Even my IMAX-induced motion sickness can’t keep me away from this. Please let me know when you are going and we can try and go together! 🙂

      You keep me updated on where to get free food! We should definitely go together. Another regular commenter here, le0pard13, says that ginger pills help with movie motion sickness aka Handheld Camera Syndrome. You should look into them; don’t want you barfing on my shoes.

    Been hearing a lot of great things about this, but knew nothing about the Imax preview.

    Please let me know more as soon as it’s available.

      I don’t know anything about Thundercats but that’s some amazing artwork.

      And there’s nothing wrong with allowing movies to make you happy!

        This is all very exciting, PCN! And whoa, thank you for the Thundercats link, Poncho. Ahem, was Lion-O’s physique based on Wolverine’s? My, my.
