The New AVATAR Trailer!

I've seen it, and I would post a link, but since it's not officially out, I believe that is against board rules.

However, that can't stop discussion .

So what does everyone think? I liked the first one, so Im not the one that needs convincing, but I do like the fact that this one puts the images seen in the first one into some sort of context. The quality of the one I saw is really low, so I cannot comment on if the wonky CG in some of the shots has been fixed or not.

I can't wait till December.

I'm waiting to see it until a HD version is available online.

Re: The New AVATAR Trailer!

Looks pretty decent. It's more of a traditional trailer, rather than the tech-demo-y feel of that last trailer. Good action.

The story though, seems very one-note and generic, evil corporation/military trying to seize valuable land, guy goes native, joins the natives, fights back evil corp-military types. Sci-fi dances with wolves.

Hopefully there's more to the story than what's in the trailer.

AICN has a semi-blurry version of it. The most impressive part of it is listing James Cameron's credits.

Re: The New AVATAR Trailer!

Looks pretty sweet. Look forward to the decent quality version.

I do think though that though this film may be remembered in film history for its CGI/3D ness, and it looks set to be a fun movie, it probably won't be so good that it's remembered as a classic (in the way Terminator/Aliens are for example) Just the vibe I get

No rush from any other website to see the trailer it seems. Have sci-fi fans ever been this uninterested in a new sci-fi movie from a Master such as Jim Cameron? The first boring ass trailer really did a good job in squashing whatever interest there was.

Im sure this film will do just fine.

Re: The New AVATAR Trailer!

Saw the new trailer in front of Amelia. I understand the plot now. I do have a question, are all the people in the movie (the normal people) CGI or not? Sigourney Weaver looked perfectly normal to me, as did everybody else.

I can't believe some people thought the actors in the original trailer were CGI as well

No that I thought they were all CG, but there was one shot of the main actor walking down a ramp with some sort of air mask on his face and he actually does look CG there.

That's just because they post-processed the shit out of him, and composited a reflection over his faceplate.

I realize that, which is why I hope that the shot is not finished.
