At last, the first look into James Cameron's "Avatar" has been made available to view with the outing of its teaser trailer. Said to be officially debuted at Apple.com, the sneak peek is outed first by French MSN and provides glimpses at Sam Worthington's wheelchair-bound Jake Sully and his avatar, what the world on Pandora looks like, and the ten-foot tall Na'vi creature.
Taking viewers to a spectacular new world beyond their imagination, the movie follows one reluctant hero as he embarks on a journey of redemption and discovery. Jake Sully is a former Marine who was wounded and paralyzed from the waist down in combat on Earth. Selected to participate in a program from which he will be able to walk again, he travels to Pandora, where sentient humanoid race called Na'vi lives, and gets his Avatar, a genetically-bred human-Na'vi hybrids.
Using his Avatar, Jake then explores Pandora's jungles as a scout for the soldiers and meets young Na'vi female Neytiri. Over time, he integrates himself into Neytiri's clan, and begins to fall in love with her. As tension grows between human and Na'vi, he finds himself caught between the military-industrial forces of Earth. Now, he has to choose sides in an epic battle that will decide the fate of an entire world.
First conceived by director/producer/writer James Cameron 14 years ago, "Avatar" underwent four years of actual production work. It promises to deliver a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film, disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.
It stars Zoe Saldana as Neytiri, Sigourney Weaver as botanist Dr. Grace Augustine, Michelle Rodriguez as retired Marine pilot Trudy Chacon, Giovanni Ribisi as Parker Selfridge and Stephen Lang as Marine Corps colonel Quaritch. December 18 will be the date it hits theaters across the U.S., while August 21 has been dubbed as the Avatar day with the free fifteen minutes screening of the film in many 3-D theaters in the U.S. and Canada.
