So this is the first proper still we’ve seen from Cameron’s new movie ‘Avatar’. There’s a lot of backlash against cameron for Titanic, but I say fuck the haters, this is a guy who has genuinely pushed Movie technology forward and is continually striving to do interesting things with the medium. Plus he did Terminator 1, 2, AND Aliens. FUCKING ALIENS FOR FUCKS SAKE!. I’m a Cameron Fanboy end of.
I’ve read the script for Avatar (freely available if you search google) and I honestly think if he manages to avoid to much eco-preachiness and pull of his 3D/Live Action/CinExperience thing, then the movie is gonna really push the cinema experience in a new direction… and by that I mean show the way for hollywood and their attitude of “nobody goes to the cinema anymore… what shall we do?.. raise ticket prices? DONE!’. It’s a big ‘IF’ but if anyone can give it a good shot, it’s JC.
I urge you to go read the Avatar script right now.
“In the future, Jake, a paraplegic war veteran, is brought to another planet, Pandora, which is inhabited by the Na’vi, a humanoid race with their own language and culture. Those from Earth find themselves at odds with each other and the local culture.”
