Avatar is a story about a reluctant ex-marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet. The planet is inhabited by exotic creatures and plant life. As an Avatar, where a human mind is placed in an alien body, the hero played by Sam Worthington (Terminator 4) finds himself caught in a desperate struggle between the alien race and high tech humans. This epic is set to be the movie of the year (with a hefty price tag it should be).
After a long wait since 1997, the director of Titanic, the all time highest grossing film will try to set the bar even higher. James Cameron had hired the best team in CGI, Weta Digital, renowned for its work in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and King Kong. You can expect spectacular environments, fantastic 3D imagery and be prepared to be transported into an alien world that will awe you from beginning to end.
