If you’re still riding high on the wave of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, we’ve got something new and exciting for you. We’re stoked to introduce the Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Sixth Scale Gamora, in all of her emerald-hued splendor.
Thanos’s adopted daughter and a highly skilled assassin, Gamora is an essential part of the Guardians universe. From her new head sculpt and meticulously detailed costume, this rendering of Gamora is a work of art. She’s also crafted based on the image of actress Zoe Saldana as she appears on-screen. This is one warrior that will easily become the focal piece of your Marvel collection.
Zoe is expecting one of her own! Zoe Saldana is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Marco Perego (artist). The mom-to-be has been making the rounds this week to promote “Guardians of the Galaxy,” but has strategically tried to camouflage her burgeoning bump on the red carpet. On Monday, she kept onlookers guessing with a printed frock. She was also spotted earlier in the day wearing a baggy T-shirt under a loose-fitting blazer. Congrats…girlfriend.
James Cameron has all but promised that the upcoming sci-fi fantasy, AVATAR, will change the face of cinema as we know it. Though he has offered very few clues about the film itself or the story it tells, his words have made many a critic doubt him and many a fan drool at the prospect of a revolutionary tale from the Terminator creator. Personally, I’m a little on the fence about it as the hype has reached such incredible heights that almost no film could ever hope to live up to it in the eyes of the future watchers. But we’ll see, right?
The film stars Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation, Clash of the Titans), Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Vantage Point), Michelle Rodriguez (LOST, Resident Evil), Sigourney Weaver (Alien, Galaxy Quest) and a cast of other top-tier talent.
Before the opening in December 18th, you can already grab some action figures from the film, including a number of strange and wonderful creatures alongside the more mundane humans. Those avoiding spoilers will likely be very confused by some of the items included in Mattel’s toy collection, but it’ll all become clear soon and, until then, just enjoy some very cool-looking items.
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.
