Sadly, we don’t actually have any Avatar clips for you yet, we do however have peoples responses to the clips from the film that they just premiered at saw a CineExpo thanks to MarketSaw. From what is sounds like, people won’t be disappointed by James Cameron‘s upcoming film starring Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez, Zoe Saldana, and Giovanni Ribisi.
Check out what they thought of the clips below…
NOTE: All of the main spoilers have been removed, so you should be able to read freely.
First, what did they show and who showed up to introduce it:
Sigourney Weaver, Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Stephen Lang stepped on stage and introduced us to their characters and a brief into of the story… We got to see clips with their scene numbers attached. Which ranged from sc. 8 to scn 48 -54 til 82. 82 is the last fully completed scene we saw which was only in act 2 of the film. The clips were amazing, can’t go into detail too much but we see Jake a lot.
As for the world and in-depth detail that Cameron has created for the film:
What is most important about this movie: Everything lives and breathes. The tree in the scene with the sacred seeds glowed. Not the bast, but the tree underneath glowed like a living thing. Little fireflies and birds fly through the shots without being there. You just take them as the world, like a dove in Central Park. It’s not placed there, it lives there and just happens to be in the shot.
The avatars even look like their human connectors. You will NOT believe the detail. Jake’s character will get a wound in a scene we saw later, it looked so real. You could see beneath the skin’s first layer, like only real wounds show.
What did the audience think?
The audience afterwards was stunned. Everyone just gasped, wondered and just couldn’t believe what they saw. [Cameron] is so proud of this movie and still handles it with great suave like he just folded a paper plane. I am just mind baffled how a genius like that can contain himself with something like this.
So will it live up to the hype? Sound like it…
This movie will change the industry. It can now enable me to play a character in a studio, then to be transferred into something different on screen so an audience will believe I am that different character. This is not the Polar Express style ‘change of character’. This will enable actors to act without them being cast on looks, but on body language from now on.
Check out the fill story over at MarketSaw, with a lot more details about the clips (beware there are some spoilers!)
The film will be in theaters December 19th, 2009.
