Avatar Teaser Trailer

First off, Happy Avatar Day! So James Cameron's Avatar has been getting about as much hype as Transformers 2 got, I would say. I had a bad experience with Transformers 2, so this time around I'm keeping my expectations down. So far, I haven't had to work hard at that because for one, there hasn't been a lot of marketing material thrown at us and secondly, I'm not impressed with the Avatar teaser trailer that went live on the Web last night.

Although a lot has been said about how the CG and the 3-D technology was utilized differently in the making of this film, I just did not take kindly to what I saw in the 2 minute teaser. Having that been said, I am still looking forward to seeing what the mesh of CG, live-action and motion capture will look like in both 2-D and 3-D.

About Avatar Day, it was announced at last month's San Diego Comic-Con that on August 21, in selected theaters all around the world, a special sneak preview of the film will be shown free of charge. A total of 16 minutes of 3-D footage is supposed to be shown in 3-D. I know that this is happening here in Malaysia too. Check out Cinema Online for more deets.

The footage we will be showing on 22 August 2009, Saturday at 11.30am GSC Mid Valley Hall 4 will add up to total running time of just over 16 min and includes a short James Cameron intro in 3-D (run time: 39 seconds) and 3-D movie footage (run time: 15 minutes, 34 seconds), which in addition to a shorter edit of scenes from the Comicon footage concludes with an action montage culled from finished footage of the teaser trailer.
So here is the long-awaited, highly anticipated teaser trailer for James Cameron's Avatar. Enjoy.

Official Plot Synopsis:
Avatar takes us to a spectacular new world beyond our imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of redemption and discovery, as he leads a heroic battle to save a civilization. The film was first conceived by Cameron 14 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist. Now, after four years of actual production work, Avatar delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film, disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.

James Cameron's Avatar hits Malaysian screens December 17.

I too am looking forward to Avatar; it was only a teaser, they can't give away all [or any] of the really good stuff.
