Avatar – The teaser trailer is with us
Posted by LiveFor on August 20, 2009
Here it is. The trailer for James Cameron’s sci-fi 3D epic is out on the cinema. Here is a much better version of the trailer. Have a look and let me know what you think of it. Will it be worth the wait?
I think it looks amazing but at the moment the big eyes of the alien Na’vi make me feel that it is a little cartoony. I’m sure that will change when I see more footage of the film.
I still feel that the plot may be the biggest weakness here – a mix of Dances With Wolves, the new Bruce Willis film Surrogates and most of all the 1992 animated film Ferngully: The Last Rainforest. The IMDB synopsis for that latter is The magical inhabitants of a rainforest called FernGully fight to save their home that is threatened by logging and a polluting force of destruction called Hexxus.
Avatar is about the alien inhabitants of the planet Pandora fighting to save their home that is threatened by the mining and pollution of the humans.
Ferngully even has a human who is shrunk to join the Fairy creatures in battling the bad guys as Sam Worthington gets put in a Na’vi Avatar to join forces with the indigenous population.
