Cameron’s first full-length dramatic feature since Titanic comes billed as the shape of films to come and that shape has height and width and depth. Cameron shot Avatar on his own patented Fusion Camera System, blending live action with the sort of performance capture technology previously road-tested on the likes of Beowulf.
Insiders claim the results go far beyond anything achieved by other recent 3D offerings, leading the industry towards a brave new world of stereoscopic film production. Twenty years from now, we are assured, all movies will look like Avatar.
With Avatar and its dedicated 24 hours of previews James Cameron has refined the template for big budget Hollywood film production. The future of cinema just became a gaudy, gift-wrapped present.
Here is the official movie trailer for Avatar “Avatar.” Directed by James Cameron release Dec 18, 2009
A movie revolution will take place at the end of the year – potentially offering as big a leap in our viewing experience as the change from black-and-white television to colour.
James Cameron, the film director who pushed technical effects to the limit with the blockbuster Titanic in 1997, and ushered in the dawn of action films with ’80s classics such as Terminator and Aliens, has unleashed the film he has been hoping to make for nearly 20 years.
Avatar, when it is released in December, will be the most ambitious 3D film ever released, and the first trailer, unveiled on the Internet yesterday, gives us a glimpse of the future.
The film is set on a distant planet, allowing luscious scenery in full 3D. In this scene, a spaceship prepares to land in a verdant forest on the world of Pandora
The storyline follows the future battle between Earth and alien moon Pandora, a ‘terrifyingly beautiful’ world full of strange creatures and rich minerals. But while James Cameron is known for packing his sci-fi films with strong storylines – from the fatherhood theme of Terminator 2 to the motherhood theme of Aliens – the story which will dominate this film’s release is the 3D experience.
