A sci-fi movie from 20th Century Fox, "Avatar" is produced by James Cameron and Jon Landau. The plot centers on a wounded ex-marine, who is thrust unwillingly into an effort to settle and exploit an exotic planet rich in bio-diversity, and eventually crosses over to lead the indigenous race in a battle for survival. "Terminator Salvation" actor Sam Worthington and "Fast and Furious" star Michelle Rodriguez are among the cast of the movie which will be released in the U.S. on December 18.
