Behind the Scenes of Avatar

Source: Firstshowing

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I'm a little hesitant when it comes to Avatar. I fear with all the special effects the film will appear cartoony and fake. I am a huge fan of James Cameron's work though, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. This featurette spotlights some side-by-side comparison shots between the final rendered look of Neytiri and actress Zoe Saldana acting out her scenes on the sound stage. It's mind-blowing how much hard work goes on behind the scenes of movie making. That part has always been very interesting to me. It's just incredible how far movies, not to mention technology have come over the years. It's all extremely fascinating! If this movie sparks your interest I suggest watching this ten minute featurette. It's pretty cool. Have a look.

Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine on the planet Pandora who, as an Avatar - a human mind in an alien body - finds himself in a desperate fight for his survival and that of the indigenous beings called Na'vi.

Avatar is both written and directed by Oscar winning visionary filmmaker James Cameron, of The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and Titanic previously. He has been developing the technology to make this movie for the last 10 years. 20th Century Fox is bringing James Cameron's Avatar to both IMAX and regular theaters in 3D around the world on December 18th.

I'm going to see this movie in theaters, will you?...
What are your thoughts?

I'm curious to see how this movie turns out... It has potential to be totally rad, or... TOTALLY suck! When do you wanna go see it?? ;)
