James Cameron’s AVATAR trailer can now be viewed right here! This hotly-anticipated movie was the talk of Comic Con and has been called a game-changer for the movie industry, apparently ready to show movie audiences something they have never seen before.
The LA Times has the info:
A day before the “Avatar” preview plays in Imax theaters worldwide, a trailer for the film appeared on the Apple website.
The two-minute-long “Avatar” trailer – available in both regular and HD formats – showcases newcomer Sam Worthington (“Terminator Salvation”) as a paraplegic linked to an alien life form on the planet Pandora.
“Avatar” is the first feature film from Oscar champ James Cameron since he declared himself to be “king of the world” after “Titanic” won a record-tying 11 Oscars in 1997. This 3-D sci-fi film also features Sigourney Weaver — who earned the first of her three Oscar nods under Cameron’s direction for “Aliens” — as well as Michelle Rodriguez and Stephen Lang.
Last month, James Cameron unveiled 24 minutes of “Avatar” at Comic-Con. On Friday, more than 100 Imax theaters worldwide will screen a 16-minute featurette, including an intro by Cameron and several scenes not included in the Comic-Con preview.
The film’s official website crashed Monday under the weight of requests for free tickets for the screening. The preview will unspool at 6 and 6:30 p.m. local time, in advance of the evening showing of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” Fox is also releasing the trailer to cinemas Friday.
